Craft and Produce Markets
I hold a special place in my heart for craft markets Melbourne offers, as this is where I developed a real passion for anything "Markets"
My mother used to run her own stall selling shell jewelery and it she who finally convinced me to try my hand at crafting. Once I started I soon began to realize that this was a lifestyle I loved. So I used to spend every weekend behind my stall selling my crafts that I had produced the week before. So much fun I can tell you.
Well things haven't really changed from what I can see. There are truly some amazingly clever crafts people out there in the marketplace. I'm meeting them everywhere and their crafts are beautiful.
Here are a few craft markets that I have selected. I think these markets represent the 'type' of market for those who love anything handmade.

Nunawading Craft and Produce
A Farmers' Market is basically a market where fresh food is sold.
Run by local communities and held at public venues on specific days, farmers and food producers are able to display and sell their 'wares' directly to the public.
This friendly atmosphere affords the customer a direct contact with the producer and allows for a two way conversation to take place. The consumer is able to get the information on the product directly from the source, always a bonus to a purchase.
Farmers' markets Melbourne offers usually consist of stalls, tables or stands, outdoors or indoors, where fruits, vegetables, meats, and sometimes prepared foods and beverages are sold.
These markets provide a source of fresh, quality and sometimes organically certified products.

Trash and Treasure Markets Melbourne offers have to be such exciting places to explore where you can sometimes find the most amazing 'stuff' you had no idea you were looking for.
Mostly secondhand goods are sold at these public places, sometimes the stalls are also stocked with excellent handcrafts, plants and homemade produce. Some markets are held regularly throughout the year and are run buy Community Groups such as the Lions Club and Rotary etc. The community benefits with the proceeds raised going to many needy services and situations.
Throughout Melbourne and the outer regions, these Trash and Treasure Markets provide ample fun for all the family, a different sort of day out and a great way to help and support the local community.
