NEXT MARKET: 06 - 08 DEC Add to calendar

Exclusive to Handmade


Small business is doing well in Australia. Artisans are making their products and cleverly promoting them, creating demand. They are attending plenty of markets and often wholesaling their products so that they appear in local and national shops. We are in full support of all of these designers and producers and hope that Handmade can contribute to their success.

For you, the shopper, having amazing local designs and food staples available in shops and at weekly markets means that you have regular access, which is a great thing. We love bringing you another dose of local produce, but we also love bringing you things that you don’t normally see in Canberra’s shops and markets. Enter Handmade’s “Exclusive” category, which consists of no fewer that 138 of our stallholders. That means over half of the stalls you’ll see at the Handmade Market on 17 & 18 March will only be available at Handmade in Canberra!

See for yourself in our DIRECTORY, where we have listed all of our exclusive designers and producers. And in the meantime, here’s a sneak peek of some of them – only at Handmade.

Exclusive to Handmade, clockwise from top left: The Perfect Dawn, Crackle Caramel Popcorn, Kiss Ready Lips, Juno and Ace, Chocolate 5018, Chai Addict, Hutwoods, Alison de Thélème.
