NEXT MARKET: 23 & 24 MAR Add to calendar

A Christmas Feast


The Handmade Gourmet Food Hall is a gathering place for Canberra foodies. With the aromas of cooking and a busy atmosphere, shopping for your Christmas food has never been more stimulating. Populated by local and national producers, it’s a great place to find out about the origin of what you’re buying, and also to get advice on how to prepare your Christmas meals using the ingredients for sale. The Handmade team has carefully put together the stallholder mix for this market, and we’re confident that there will be such a wide selection of Christmas speciality foods that you’ll be able to cross off most of your shopping list.

Head to the gourmet food hall for hams from Pialligo Estate and delicious Christmas puddings from Cookies & Co. Make sure you’re stocked up with gingerbread caramel sauce from Misty’s or find a spectacular gingerbread house from Homemade Sweet Delights. Christmas themed cookies from Rosebery St Bakehouse and chocolate sets from Jasper + Myrtle Chocolates make great gifts and sweet indulgences from Caramel Cave include Christmas pudding caramel apples. In fact, most of our producers have come up with something special for Christmas, whether it’s a spice blend that captures the flavours of the holidays or a chutney designed to go with your ham.

So start planning your menu early and head to the Handmade Market. We’re open for an extra twilight session on 8th December from 5pm until 9pm and then from 10am until 4pm on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th. And when you’re finished, don’t forget to fill up on the offerings from one of our street food vans, or join us for a festive drink in our bar area.
