The Handmade Gourmet Food Hall


Handmade is not just a design market. It is also the largest indoor food market in the region, focusing on Australian grown and made produce. Our producers grow, invent, create and concoct to bring you the best in sauces, jams, chutneys, vinegars, oil, spices, fresh produce and baked goods. Packaged in stunning jars, bottles and boxes, these products will be ready for you to taste, buy and take away from the market this weekend, 28 & 29 July, 10am – 4pm.

Within the hall, there is a dedicated drinks area, where you can sample spirits or indulge in cocktails from local up and coming distilleries. You can taste a number of cool climate wines and chat to the winemakers themselves. And you can sample local artisan beers, making sure of course that you take some home with you to enjoy later.

Coffee connoisseurs will be able to watch the baristas perform their magic in both the Coorong and Budawang buildings and there are several tea options, ginger beer and cold fresh juices to keep your thirst quenched.

Those with a sweet tooth will not be disappointed. Doughnuts, macarons, biscuits, cakes, cannoli, marshmallows and chocolate, all handmade and all delicious, will be on offer to snack on or take away as a sweet gift.

And this is the warmest place to sample the region’s rare delicacy, the truffle. The Handmade Truffle Snaffle is our special seasonal event with specialist truffle producers and dozens of products that have been beautifully infused with this distinctive flavour.

Canberra’s biggest indoor street food selection will also be on offer, so you can enjoy even more time at Handmade, knowing that you won’t be hungry. From Indian to Greek and Aussie to Asian, there are flavours to suit all tastes, including vegetarian and vegan options, for breakfast, lunch and snacks. So, see you at Handmade, 10am until 4pm Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th July, Exhibition Park. Parking and entry are free.
