Mulgrave Makers Market
The Mulgrave Makers Market is a new and exciting showcase for all things handmade in Melbourne.
On the fourth Sunday (usually the last) of every month (8am -1pm), the makers market takes place alongside the thriving Mulgrave Farmers Market in the grounds of The Body Shop‘s HQ in the heart of the southeastern suburbs. This market boasts more than 45 stallholders selling everything from seasonal fruit and vegetables to fresh-cut flowers, and attracts more than 2,000 customers every week.
The Mulgrave Makers Market is a great opportunity to discover local creative talent in a relaxed and sociable community hub, and to get your hands on unique gifts before they reach the shops. Meet the crafters themselves and get inspired with regular workshops.
Profits generated from the market funds charitable projects supported by the Wise Foundation. So bring your kids, coax your neighbours, soak in the village atmosphere and enjoy a rare occasion where you can honestly say, ‘every one is a winner‘.
About the market
If it‘s 100% handmade in Melbourne, you‘ll find it at the Mulgrave Makers Market.
We‘re delighted to help showcase new and emerging talent and look forward to many successful businesses growing from these soulful beginnings. And we hope you‘ll enjoy catching these crafters while they‘re still cottage industries, and feel good about supporting a market that exists entirely to have a positive impact on the community.
The Makers Market is driven by the ideas, energy and enthusiasm of many people, including the fabulous Justine Telfer from Mixtape‘zine‘ and Rosina Lazzaro aka Rosy Red and our very talented market manager.
