Market Special: St Andrews Community Market


Tell us about your market? St Andrews Market is held every Saturday between 8am – 2pm except on Total Fire Ban days in the central district (same as Melbourne). Located in the foothills of the Yarra Ranges with a passion for fresh, handmade, recycled and creative products St Andrews market is a great place to shop, relax and take in the atmosphere or somewhere to sell your creations and pre-loved goods.

What does your market offer? Art and craft items, jewellery, organic produce, massage, pre-loved vintage and retro items, pottery, handmade soap and skin care products, homemade preserves, hair braids and wraps, face painting, kids pony rides, a great selection of food (including many vegetarian and gluten-free options), entertaining buskers and more.

What do you love about the market culture? The market is run by volunteers, and as a result we depend on all stall holders and patrons to assist however they can. We are a community market and welcome all to experience and be a part our unique market.

Can you describe the process of opening the market in the morning? We do not pre-book stalls, sign-on sheets are located in the hall between 6am – 6.45am. Stall allocations commence at 7am and cost $15. A volunteer will assist you in finding your allocated area.

Describe your market in one sentence. The market has been running for over 40 years and is unique for its vibrant and earthy atmosphere, with each week guaranteed to be different from the last.
