NEXT MARKET: 06 - 08 DEC Add to calendar

Wrapping up September


The Handmade Market is a lovely place to spend a weekend. We think that lots of you agree with this, as we thoroughly enjoyed seeing your smiles and enthusiastic responses to the traders that had worked so hard to be there. Lots of shopping bags, lots of inspiration and lots of satisfied taste buds!

Our wonderful photographer, Erin, spent a good part of the weekend capturing the market. And we’re so happy to share the results with you. We think they are a great snapshot of the event. Hopefully you will too.

If you were at the market, thank you for supporting Australian small business. If you couldn’t make it, we’d love to see you next time. The next market is our Christmas event. On Friday 6th December 5pm – 9pm, we’ll be hosting our twilight event. And on Saturday 7th & Sunday 8th December 10am – 4pm, we’ll be open as usual, Exhibition Park in Canberra. Watch this space for details as we release them.

Our Best In Show Award went to Oditi Designs, whose stunning purpose built stall felt just like a pop up shop. The sisters were delighted to be given the award, and it was so well deserved. The preparation they put in paid off and we’ll be discussing why on the blog in the coming days. Congratulations ladies!
