St Kilda Esplanade Market
June 26, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Sunday, repeating until June 26, 2022
The St Kilda Esplanade Market is a makers’ market and has been a St Kilda Sunday delight since the 1970s. Set against the iconic backdrop of the St Kilda Beach, close to Luna Park, Acland Street and Fitzroy Street, it’s famous for a good reason – there’s something for everyone and more!
Take a stroll along the Upper Esplanade and enjoy browsing through the market’s many artisan products. Grab a bite to eat from the ‘Foodie Zone’ with flavours from around the world.
This vibrant makers’ market features unique stalls of hand crafted artwork, wood products, jewellery, accessories, children’s toys, original designed clothing, artisan food products and much more. And you’ll find it all in Melbourne’s open-air gallery by the sea.
Each and every stallholder has a hand in making the products being sold. Take the time to ask how the products are made, and you will soon see the love and passion that is poured into each of the one-of-a-kind pieces of work.
From gifts and homewares to clothing, homewares and jewellery – you will leave confident that you are taking with you something that is unique and Australian made by the stallholder.
New stalls are added to the market every week, so there is always something different to catch your eye.
One of the oldest makers’ markets in Melbourne, celebrating 52 years this December, St Kilda Esplanade Market began as a starting platform for many artists, including James Egan, now a national living treasure, and Ruth Epps, who were among the first 20 or so artists to display their work. The market quickly began attracting stallholders who were not just St Kilda locals, but artists and makers from all over Victoria, and so the magic of the St Kilda Esplanade Market began.
The market is open every Sunday of the year from 10am to 4pm (and 5pm daylight saving hours). It is a great day out with family, friends and fur babies and a must-visit when in Melbourne.
Getting there is an easy 15-minute ride from the city on tram 16 or 96 and there is plenty of parking nearby.
