Melbourne’s Camberwell Sunday Market has always been a place driven by passion, ideas and entrepreneurship – from young to young at heart.
Many of our thousands of visitors each week find unique and special items to use in their own projects, be that works of art at home or an exciting idea for a micro business.
This budding entrepreneur had stall 309. While anyone could make slime, how many actually take the time to get all the ingredients to keep their kids entertained for hours?
‘Sugar pop slime’ taps into this this need and makes it simple and easy for people to enjoy the pleasures of slime!
The great thing about a stall at the Market is the variety of sellers and visitors. In a few hours you can quickly discover the ‘market value’ of arts, crafts and handmade goods and test your entrepreneurial ideas with customers. Drop by stall 309 to get slimed today, December 2nd, 2018.

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!
