Sunday at Camberwell

Every week is different. Every week is unique. Some come for the fresh flowers, others with a single item in mind. Some come just for the spectacle and the hot jam donuts.

For the cost of a gold coin donation, you gain access to a place like no other in Melbourne. It has been going for decades and will continue for more. It is a Sunday ritual for some, people watching for others or just the thrill of the search.

You can discover almost anything you saw in the classic Australian suburbs of the 1950s or 80s or, perhaps, newspapers from the earliest days of Melbourne. There are ornaments and toys that have the wear and tear of a couple of months to a couple of decades.

Some times a Victorian business that has been trading for years closes down. The wreckers mover in and the salvage teams recover what they can. Some of what you see is exactly that, items from a dusty covered factory that have not been seen for years.

Many of our stall holders are regulars and a wealth of knowledge on the items they curate from auctions or salvage yards, creating an eclectic mix of people, items and experience that is the same but different every Sunday.

Of course the Market operates from 6:30am to 12:30pm every Sunday and a wonderful array of local businesses, restaurants and specialty stores is yours to explore all afternoon!

Good Friday Appeal

It is the Good Friday Appeal and the Box Hill Miniature Steam Railway Society is contributing all proceeds & donations to The Royal Children’s Hospital, Melbourne today!

Balwyn Rotary members ‪#‎volunteered‬ at the Railway today: Bringing joy to children (& the young at heart!) is just one of the projects you support by attending the Camberwell Sunday Market.

And there is a goodwill multiplier: the Market’s small donation to supports the Railway in providing a fun & unique way to raise funds for the Good Friday Appeal!

In addition, Rotary International works with the Railway to hold a special day each year for special needs children, their carers and family.

The Camberwell Sunday Market is proud to support innovative, meaningful & unique community projects.

Thank you for supporting the Sunday Market!

Car parking at Camberwell

Camberwell Town HallPublic Car park building works near Target.

Free all day car parking is available for those visiting the Market on Inglesby Road opposite the Local council offices. Only a 5 minute walk back to the Market.

The Market area and stall numbers will be unaffected by the building works and access to the Market via Station Street will be unaffected.

The building works have started and will take place over the next 9 months as a result in public parking in the south end of the Target car park has been reduced by over 250 car spaces.

Booking system update (Tuesday 10/11/2015): now open 

As most of you know, we use a web based booking system to manage nearly 400 stalls every week. To access the system, press the “Book a Stall” button that appears on the main page. Thousands of people check our site to book a stall and participate in the Melbourne’s best retro, collectible and vintage Sunday Market. We are currently doing a security upgrade on the booking system so it will be unavailable for about 24 hours. We will let you know (on social media and here) when the maintenance is complete and you can book a stall. See you on Sunday!
