Looking back over 40 years

As our 40th Anniversary approaches, more and more people are coming forward with their special memories and stories of the market: amazing discoveries and life changing events.

Yes, life changing events! For example, a couple that was married 15 years ago at the Market are planning to make the trip to Market this weekend.

Just this week a local family was clearing a room and came across a bunch of photographs from 1986. We we just a youngster then, a mere 10 years old.
Now the photos, taken by Ivan Narandja whilst a media student at Rusden College. Are themselves three decades old.

 

The original photos, in framed large format, will be on display at the Rotary Stall tomorrow at the Market and are available for sale.

What do see in these photos that peaked your interest? Leave a comment below.

For us, it’s the more things change, the more they stay the same! Apart from being three decades old and in black & white, these could well have been taken last weekend!

A message from the Mayor of Boroondara


Camberwell Sunday Market celebrates 40 years

On Sunday, 28 August, Camberwell Sunday Market celebrates a wonderful 40 years as one of Melbourne’s most iconic markets, deeply embedded into Camberwell’s social fabric. As a community we are proud to call it ours.

As the 250 thousand annual visitors who support the Market drop their gold coins into Rotary volunteers’ yellow cups each Sunday, little may they realise the many charitable causes they’ve assisted.

For the past 20 years a unique relationship has existed between Balwyn Rotary, Council and the Camberwell Traders. During that time approximately $3.3 million or around 30 per cent of the net proceeds raised at the Market, along with additional funds from Council, has supported the Boroondara Community Strengthening Grants.

These grants have enabled many Community Groups to implement projects, run events and provide a range of services to meet outcomes valued by the community.

Likewise, Balwyn Rotary have contributed to many Council projects including the Boroondara Literary Awards, Kinder Plus, Boroondara Cares Foundation and infrastructure projects which have benefited the community and Camberwell Traders.

I congratulate Balwyn Rotary on this fantastic milestone and thank all Rotarians and members of our community who have contributed to the success of the Market over the past 40 years.

This birthday celebration will be a wonderful community event. All are welcome to attend and I hope to see you there on Sunday 28 August.
With best wishes,

Councillor Jim Parke, Mayor of Boroondara
