NEXT MARKET: 06 - 08 DEC Add to calendar

The March 2018 Handmade Market


Now that we’ve taken a deep breath after the market last week, we’re focusing on the planning for our next market. We’ll be back at EPIC on Saturday 5th May and Sunday 6th May from 10am until 4pm both days with a fresh line-up, a number of new designers and beautiful displays of fashion, homewares, gifts and food.

The next market has been cleverly planned to take place the weekend before Mothers’ Day. This makes Handmade the perfect place to find gifts for mum. Browse our Gourmet Food Hall for special treats including all the ingredients for a beautiful high tea – speciality teas, stunning cakes and biscuits and perhaps even something bubbly.

Whether you are shopping for that special new mum, want to spend pocket money on a small trinket for the best mum ever or you’re faced with the challenge of someone who is very hard to buy for, our designers will be able to help. In our¬†designer halls, you’ll find the perfect gift, which is not only made by Australian artisans, but also limited edition. With candles, body care, accessories, jewellery, fashion and gorgeous things for the home, you will be able to spoil her in style.

To help you with your planning, we’ll soon be launching our brand new directory, with all of the stall holders you’ll find at our May market. In the meantime, check out the new imagery on the Handmade website. This year, we are theming each market according to the season. Our March Market had an Autumn colour scheme, with rich orange, amber glassware and seasonal spices in our photography. For May, we have put together a collection of images in Handmade’s signature rich blue, with an accent of cool eucalyptus to reflect the cooler weather and a hint of pink. Taking our cues from a stylish high tea with Mum, we’ve put together this mood board for inspiration.
