New and Used Goods
You will find the biggest and the best new and secondhand market at Laverton, situated 38 minutes south east of Melbourne Central.
Here, 14 hectares have been set aside for this rubble and riches gold mine, a true treasure trove of goodies to sort through.
The market is held on a Saturday and Sunday, every weekend, with the exception of Christmas Day if it falls on a weekend.
The market consists of 2 huge indoor pavilions crammed full of variety stalls, as well as a massive number of outdoor stores selling goods ranging from new items to used treasures.
From antique to new clothing, arts & crafts products, tools, machinery, electronic goods, plants and fresh produce.
Laverton Market is located on 14 hectares at 8-18 Leakes Road Laverton with over 1,000 car spaces nearby. Leakes Road is only 800m from the Westgate Freeway and 10 minutes by car from Melbourne’s CBD.
Laverton Market (Rubble & Riches Market) is one of the largest and longest running weekend markets in Melbourne's western suburbs.
The market was founded in 1974 at its former site on Boundary Road, Brooklyn. In 1984 the market moved to its current site on Leakes Road, Laverton, where it continues to operate today.
Laverton Market originated as a predominately second hand market trading under the name 'Rubble & Riches Market'. Over the years the market has grown to welcome a more diverse range of stallholders that offer a wider variety of products and services both new and second hand.
