"I hold a special place in my heart for craft markets Melbourne offers, as this is where I developed a real passion for anything to do with markets Melbourne had to offer.

My mother used to run her own stall selling shell jewellery. She was the one who finally convinced me to try my hand at crafting. Once I started, I soon began to realize that this was definitely a lifestyle that I I loved. I used to spend every weekend behind my stall, selling the crafts that I had produced the week before."

Top Flea Markets Melbourne is proud of - Trash and Treasure Market

Trash and Treasure Markets Melbourne, are exciting places to explore. You can sometimes find the most amazing 'stuff' you had no idea you were looking for. These markets make for a fun way to wile away a few hours, picking through the junk and suddenly finding that special gem!

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.

They are usually run by Community Groups such as the Lions Club and Rotary etc. The community benefits, with the proceeds raised going to many needy services and situations.
