Try, taste, shop and relax at the Canberra’s biggest market!

If you’re looking for unique gifts and souvenirs, designer home wares, bespoke fashion, intricate jewellery or gourmet products, then a visit to the award-winning Handmade Market is a MUST!

Held at EPIC over four weekends a year (soon to be five!) in the Budawang and Coorong Pavilions, the Handmade Market carefully curates its offering to bring you the very best designers and producers across Australia.

Each market you can browse the 260 stalls to find that next stunning statement piece for your home, treat yourself with a designer fashion item or the latest skincare product, or find that unique gift for a special someone. You can also bring the children as there are toys, art and clothing just for them!

And of course, there is a gourmet food hall devoted to larder staples and street food so you can grab a coffee or snack, stock up on sauces and spices, indulge in a sweet treat, or enjoy lunch from one of the many street vans. You can also catch up with friends over a glass of wine or speciality cocktail from the feature bar area and soak up the unique market atmosphere.

Entry and parking are both FREE!
