Sunday at Camberwell

Every week is different. Every week is unique. Some come for the fresh flowers, others with a single item in mind. Some come just for the spectacle and the hot jam donuts.

For the cost of a gold coin donation, you gain access to a place like no other in Melbourne. It has been going for decades and will continue for more. It is a Sunday ritual for some, people watching for others or just the thrill of the search.

You can discover almost anything you saw in the classic Australian suburbs of the 1950s or 80s or, perhaps, newspapers from the earliest days of Melbourne. There are ornaments and toys that have the wear and tear of a couple of months to a couple of decades.

Some times a Victorian business that has been trading for years closes down. The wreckers mover in and the salvage teams recover what they can. Some of what you see is exactly that, items from a dusty covered factory that have not been seen for years.

Many of our stall holders are regulars and a wealth of knowledge on the items they curate from auctions or salvage yards, creating an eclectic mix of people, items and experience that is the same but different every Sunday.

Of course the Market operates from 6:30am to 12:30pm every Sunday and a wonderful array of local businesses, restaurants and specialty stores is yours to explore all afternoon!
