We have a wonderful selection of gourmets coming to the Handmade Market on 7, 8 & 9 December for the big Christmas Handmade Market. Our Food Hall will be packed with regional and national producers who have spent years planting, nurturing and growing ingredients and developing recipes so that they can bring the freshest and tastiest that Australia has to offer. All made in small batches for maximum quality, there is a lot on the menu for your holiday celebrations.

Whether you want the right sauce or chutney for your ham or you’re looking for the perfect oil and vinegar for your salad, the Handmade Gourmet Food Hall has everything you’ll need for the perfect Christmas feast. Delicious sweet treats – check. Heavenly chocolates – check. Tasty saucissons – check. Your list will be a fraction of its original length by the time you’ve finished tasting and shopping, and chances are that you’ll have picked up some extras you hadn’t thought of as well. To prepare your menu, why not head over to our DIRECTORY and check out the full list of food producers who are coming to the Christmas market.

Handmade is all about great design and delicious produce. It is also about relaxing, shopping and being part of something special. And special times, especially at Christmas, call for a nice drink. Whether it’s a coffee with your mum, a glass of wine with your partner or cheeky cocktails with friends, Handmade has a big range of producers who specialise in liquid refreshment.

We have two coffee stalls to keep you going on your shopping marathon and several tea producers, all of whom can advise on the best blend for you, or package you up the perfect gift for a friend or loved one. Local wineries will be happy to share their knowledge with you as you pair your food purchases with the perfect wine. And our brewers will be delighted to pour you a glass of the amber good stuff. If cocktails are your thing, have a chat with our distilleries, all of whom are experts in infusing their spirits and mixing them with just the right flavour for your Christmas party. Our juice bars will be serving fresh clean blends to quench your thirst and we also have kombucha and tonic, so there really is something for everyone. Check out our directory for the full list of drinks producers HERE.

See you in our gourmet grotto, 5pm – 9pm on Friday 7th December and 10am-4pm on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th December at Exhibition Park, Canberra – the Coorong Pavilion. And don’t forget, if you want to be a Handmade producer, we are always looking for excellent Australian businesses with delicious and original produce. Find out more on our SELL AT THE MARKET page, and if you’re keen to be at our next market on 23 & 24 March, we need your applications very soon.
