The Sunday Market is held right in the heart of the city of Melbourne every Sunday between the hours of 10:00am and 4:00pm

Along St Kilda Road and outside Hammer Hall, market stalls line the footpath, up the steps and alongside the lawn area just below the Art Centre Spire.

This market features top quality art and handcraft, homemade produce and personal care products. All displayed undercover in this unique setting that is so convenient to other iconic Melbourne Attractions such as Federation Square, Flinders Street, Southbank, The National Gallery and The Shrine of Remembrance.

Where Is The Art Centre Sunday Market?

View Arts Centre Sunday Market in a larger map

Situated on the side of St Kilda Road opposite the Alexandra and Queen Victoria Gardens, this art and craft market is one of the Melbourne Attractions that I suggest you don't miss out on exploring.

The stalls are all undercover so there is no need to concern yourself about the unpredictability of our Melbourne weather.

Just a short stroll over Princess Bridge if coming in by public transport on the train or drive in and park either at the Art Centre (paid parking) or Federation Square (set fee whole day)

If you get a little peckish there are stalls that offer homemade hot and cold foods as well as hot and cold drinks.

As it takes some time to thoroughly explore the stalls here and no doubt strike up lots of conversations with the stall holders you will want to break now and again for a little refreshment.

I suggest doing so here as the crowds at Southbank are usually rather large and the food selection here is really fascinating. For example ...

  • Middle Eastern delights
  • Delicious authentic Anatolian pastry wraps
  • Mini pancakes

and so much more.

A stall I found fascinating here at the Arts Centre Sunday Market was Eddie Gambin's handmade souvenir stall.

Eddie cleverly paints and illustrates characters, australian animals and typical iconic Melbourne and Australian scenes.

He then manages to apply these colourful designs to postcards, lightweight wall plaques, fridge magnets and other bases.

Perfect for the tourist who is looking for that light and authentic souvenier to take back home.

And Don't Forget To Be Sun Smart

You cannot feel or see UV (Ultraviolet radiation). We can see the sun's light and we can feel the sun's warmth (the infrared radiation). Our senses don't pick up on UV radiation and this is why it is so damaging.

Right across Australia this UV radiation varies, it being determined by the time of day, time of year, the weather including cloud cover, how close to the equator the position is and other considerable scientific factors.
