No matter where you seem to go, parking in Melbourne is seemingly non-existent with time limits and permits around every corner, but at the Camberwell Market, you’ll find free all-day parking only five minutes away on Inglesby Road, opposite the local council offices – as if anyone needed another reason to love the market.

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. We will be posting eight facts about the Camberwell Sunday Market over this weekend! Stay tuned, more fun facts to come!

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.
