Arts Centre Melbourne's Sunday Market will be open all weekend in the lead-up to Christmas. It will now also open on Saturday 8, 15 and 22 December and will showcase new makers as well as 80 original stallholders and their best locally-made festive wares for the gift-giving season.
The Weekend Festive Market will feature the finest artisans from across the state, with a festive twist and holiday cheer added to their usual wares, which makes it the perfect place for Christmas shopping. There will be a variety of unique, handmade goods ranging from arts and crafts to freshly made delicacies.
Arts Centre Melbourne's Forecourt and St Kilda Road lawn will become a Holiday Walk, with Christmas carols playing throughout the day.
Just a short walk over the bridge from Flinders Street Station, Arts Centre Melbourne Weekend Festive Market has the relaxed feel of a regional craft market against the backdrop of Melbourne's arts precinct.
Market visitors also have the convenience of under-cover parking located under Arts Centre Melbourne's Theatres Building.
