Supporting Australian Made Designers & Producers at the Handmade Canberra EPIC Markets

There is nothing better than hearing the chatter of people as they move through the EPIC markets pavilions, the exclamations of delight from customers as they fall in love with a handmade product and, of course, the tantalising aromas of different cuisines emerging from our Gourmet Food Hall – all the things that make our market such a great experience to be a part of!

Every market has fresh new stallholders and our returning stallholders always have new designs on offer, making a visit to the Handmade EPIC markets the place to be to keep up with fresh and emerging design trends. It’s not your ordinary market… think high quality, stylish and on trend wares. We pride ourselves on bringing the most talented Australian makers to Canberra to connect them with customers passionate about supporting Australian made. While entry to the market is free, we do encourage a gold coin donation to our Charity Door Greeters, Rise Above.

Below are just a few of the very talented makers we are welcoming to our midst for our June Winter Handmade Market on the 29-30 June 2024. View the full market lineup of Stallholders attending the market to start getting your shopping list ready.
