Market closed Sunday 1st August 2021

While we are all very keen to have the Camberwell Sunday Market open for business, unfortunately it will not be open this weekend.

Our discussions with Boroondara Council and health authorities have confirmed the need for a cautious approach in order to reopen safely.

The Camberwell Sunday Market continues to be a vibrant part of the local community for over 40 year, and attracts thousands of people every Sunday.

The safety of you our stallholders, our Rotary volunteers and our local community is of the utmost importance and this is the basis of the decision to wait a further week until reopening.

Those who have made a booking for the 1st of August 2021 will receive a full refund for the stall/s they have booked.

Refunds will be processed over the next 72hrs and the Reference on your statement will be ……ROTARY CLUB OF BALWYN.

Refunds will be returned to the Credit card /Account you used to pay for the stall and depending on your bank it can take up to 5 days

We will be releasing more weeks for booking so please be sure to check the booking app.

Please stay safe,

Regards,

Paul/ Market Manager

Market memories: made with love

While we are closed this weekend due to a Covid19 lockdown, we love these memories shared this week on Intagram by Sally @i.collect.eclectic ❤️ and reproduced here, with permission.


“People always ask and talk about how long they’ve been dealers buying and selling and being addicted to the thrill of the vintage junk game well this is where I started my apprenticeship Camberwell Sunday Market aged around 8 ..

I’m now 52 so you do the math ..

Mum’s taken the photo and this is her good friend Isobel with me …
these are the days you’d arrive the night before park the car and sleep in it ..

People would be up all night playing music drinking and even hold the odd fire in a drum ..

If you didn’t sleep over you could return in the morning to find your car had been lifted and moved to a not so desirable spot ..

These were the days of plenty

I’d buy my mum strings of amber and armadillo handbags to stash away for the perfect Christmas present ..

I’d trot around in a tiny 3/4 sleeve fur jacket ..they were the perfect full size for me ..

Another favourite were my black suede victorian shoes ..

Camberwell Market has changed a lot over the last 45 years or so but it’s still my favourite market of all time …”

“It was a curious sight for those passing by the shops at Camberwell in Melbourne’s east through the late 60s and 70s.

A modest, five-room home which appeared to have been plonked in the middle of a car park.”
