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.

RIP Prince Phillip

‘Nostalgia is often a word used by visitors when describing the Sunday Market. It something different for everyone visiting, but it is a powerful feeling, a happy feeling, and we are glad to bring people together find that little piece of ‘nostalgia’, often when they least expect it.

Often sovereigns of a Royal visit, wedding, birth and other event can be found. Like all discoveries at the market, there can be a hidden surprise, something a little extra, hidden in the treasurers you discover. As we reflect on the loss of the Duke of Edinburgh – a public figure that has been a constant in everyone’s life – it reminded us of one piece of ‘nostalgia’ that was hidden in a $1 book ‘The Coronation Album’ of H.M. Queen Elizabeth. Hidden in the middle pages was a near new 1954 Royal Visit Souvenir presented to school children by the Commonwealth Government. What a bonus for a $1 purchase! What a mind blowing itinerary for the young couple. Nostalgia. Priceless. Rest In Peace Prince Philip, you will be missed by millions.

Global recycling day

Celebrating Global Recycling Day – thank you for being part of our community that has been recycling secondhand goods for 45 years! We proud to have provided that special space, place and time each Sunday where anyone has the opportunity to sell their good and anyone, from anywhere, has the opportunity to purchase used items and handmade arcticles, often made themselves from recycled materials.

In the process of providing a regular weekly forum for recycling household and other goods, we’ve raised millions of dollars for charities and worthy causes along the way… and had a heck of a wonderful time in the process.

Who would have thought recycling, helping the planet, reducing waste, ‘saving’ a 30 year old toy, vase or magazine from landfill would created something bigger than itself. Together, everyone makes Sunday Market special – more than just recycling – it’s a community that exists for that one moment in time every Sunday, where we enjoy it so much, we even forget we are recycling. We are preventing landfill. We saving pieces of history. We are raising money for those in need. We love recycling so much we don’t even know we do it anymore!

Thank you for making such an important part of a sustainable world so much fun! Hope to see you Sunday!
