Don’t revisit this awkward Victorian moment 125 years ago! Remember to discover a treasure before 12:30pm every Sunday to avoid disappointment!
Wow 40 years! Who would have thought that the humble beginnings of 1976 would go on to creat one of Melbourne’s most popular, unique and successful weekly markets ever.
For our last Market Day of 2016 on December 11th and a beautiful top of 20 degrees, we are next open on Elvis Presley’s birthday of January 8th, 2017. That’s a three week break to relex, enjoy family and friends and prepare for a great 2017!
Thank you for sharing the last 40 years with. In that time we have entertained hundreds of thousands of visitors, send the bizarre, awesome, weird and wonderful with you on Sundays in Camberwell. Thank yo for being part of it!
Together, we have had fun and raised millions of dollars for charitable and worthy causes – changing lives with relief aid for earthquake victims, providing specialised medical training facilities to support for local Boroondara literature awards, plus so much more.
Thank you, all our visitors from across Australia and all around the world! To our weekly stall holders, thank you for searching out millions of the most unique and wonderful items to be found anywhere – and carting them to Camberwell every Sunday.
And of course a massive thank you to hundreds of volunteers, who give up their time to create a special gathering place for Melbournians each Sunday.
