NEXT MARKET: 06 - 08 DEC Add to calendar

Winter Wonderland


Thank you Canberra for a brilliant market weekend. We were warmed by your warmth. We were wowed by the quality of handmade Australian food, drink, gifts, homewares and fashion. It was great to see such overwhelming support of Australian small business. We loved seeing your purchases. We were also pleased that so many of you supported the Light Rail network and arrived at the new EPIC station.

Our amazing photographer, Erin, took hundreds of photographs around the market. We’ve posted them on our FACEBOOK page so you can have a look. A very small cross section can be found here.

Every market, we award the “Best in Show” to one of our stallholders who has created a beautiful space for you to shop in. For the June Market, our winner was Jenny Laidlaw Illustrator & Artist. Jenny’s illustrations appeal to both children and adults and are intricate and delightful. We loved Jenny’s stall because it made perfect use of the corner space she booked. She arranged her art at all levels to maximise the space and was engaging and animated all weekend. Her signage was evident, her social media about the event was excellent and she created a wonderful first impression for people walking into the Parkes Room. Jenny was thrilled to be given the award and proud of what she achieved. Well done Jenny!

We’ll be back in September to do it all over again! Our Spring market will be held in the same place, EPIC, on Saturday 7th & Sunday 8th September, 10am until 4pm both days. We can’t wait to see you there.
