All posts by Camberwell Sunday Market

Established by Balwyn Rotary in 1976, the Camberwell Sunday Market has become a Melbourne weekend institution. Our market is known for specialty items that are retro, vintage or nostalgic. We love being part of 'old Melbourne' and helping you find things you will find nowhere else. And environmentally friendly - wow - we have been lowering the carbon footprint of Melbourne for years by recycling and reselling second hand items in nearly 400 weekly stall. Discover a Treasure. Discover a Cause. Discover Camberwell.

Celebrating $20m raised

Join us in Camberwell Junction on Sunday, May 22, for a special celebration. The market will open as usual from 7am to 12:30pm, with special Sunday Funday events commencing at 10am.

The day is a celebration to mark $20 million raised by the iconic Camberwell Sunday Market and Rotary for community projects.

Camberwell Sunday Market was started in the mid-1970s by Balwyn Rotary and has operated continuously (except for COVID19 closures) for almost 50 years.

Head down to the Sunday Market to enjoy live music, entertainers, face painters and giveaways as you browse stalls for your next retro treasure. Then head to the shops in Camberwell Junction precinct to uncover new season fashion or stop in at a cafe to enjoy some downtime.

Flood Relief this Sunday

Large parts of Eastern Australia have been hit by historic flooding in March 2022. These communities are only now beginning to recover.

On Sunday 27 March 2022 all market proceeds will be donated to flood relief. The Rotary Club of Balwyn and associated clubs will be collecting gold coin donations at market entry points, so please join us this weekend and contribute generously to this worthy cause.

Public Assembly at the market

Meet Camberwell Sunday Market regulars Lynda and Ceri from Public Assembly.

You will recognise their spotted old Bedford truck near the entrance to the market. They love what they do and recycle, repurpose and reuse discarded plastic toys and other items.

Have a special little plastic toy or ornament that you can’t let go of but can’t find a good purpose for? Meet Public Assembly: your item can be turned into a unique key ring, necklace or earrings!

Don’t have your own item to work with? No problem. There are a million items to chose from at the market and the old Bedford is loaded with barrels of old toys and bits and pieces to choose from.

When at the market, Lynda and Ceri focus on ‘micro’ projects that bring joy to market goers, especially children. At other times they undertake larger scale public art works that engage with the local community.
