Fun Facts about our 40th Anniversary


On Sunday, August 28th, the Camberwell Market celebrated its 40th anniversary. Since 1976, the weekly market has been luring patrons with vintage trinkets, knickknacks, and hot jam donuts. Founded by Balwyn Rotary, the market started with 48 stalls, and it has since grown to almost 400, with stallholders waiting weeks to secure a spot at the market. Treasure hunters can comb through second-hand clothes and records, antique toys, jewellery, artwork, keepsakes and a variety odds and ends from dawn until midday in search of rare gems. In celebration of this milestone, here are eight facts about the Camberwell Market.

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!
