The Makers And Shakers Market Is Returning To Melbourne This Weekend

This event is powered by the handmade movement, with local makers, artisans, and designers selling their unique wares to fortunate market goers.

This event is held in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Canberra twice a year.

As you can tell, this market has been beautifully curated; you must not miss it!

This weekend, you can expect to see bountiful makers as you browse through over 60 wonderful market stalls under the one roof.

Here are a just a few faces that will make an appearance this Sunday –

“The Makers and Shakers Market is a fiercely independent event powered by the goals and values of the handmade movement. We strive to play our little part in creating the shift from the consumption of mass-produced products, to the mass-consumption of locally and authentically produced products. Our modus operandi is to put on meticulously organised market events, that are intimate and concentrate in the best quality makers, but still large enough to offer a wide range of homewares, food and lifestyle products for customers to amass amazing treasures.”
