We love supporting small businesses that make their product here in Australia. We especially love it when new start ups launch themselves at the Handmade Market and use it as a springboard to becoming thriving businesses that expand their reach nationally.

Some of our traders now wholesale into Canberra shops so you can buy their products whenever you like. Others attend a number of markets in the region and we enjoy their success. There are some however, that continue to make the Handmade Market their only outlet in the region. And for you, the shopper, there is nothing as exciting as discovering something different. Taking home something that you can’t buy anywhere else in the region, knowing that it’s unique and exclusive.


When you explore the Handmade Directory, you will find all of the stallholders for the Christmas Market (6, 7 & 8 December) all in one place. They have put together profiles so you can read about them and view their product shots. And you can discover more about them through links to their websites and social media.

Each trader is allocated one or more categories.  If you specifically want to view jewellery for example, head to the “jewellery, accessories & bags” category where you can find them all together. We have grouped new designers so you can make a list of new discoveries. And we also have an EXCLUSIVE category, where you can find out who is only selling at Handmade in the Canberra region.

Around half of our stallholders are exclusive. From the gourmet pantry and drinks to children’s products and fashion. There are too many to mention individually, but here is a snapshot to whet your appetite. We can’t wait to see you at the market on 6 December at our twilight event (5pm – 9pm) and 7 & 8 December during the day (10am – 4pm).
