All Of The Melbourne Markets You Need To Visit This February

By Pippa Knight - 01 Feb 2018


Market season isn't over yet, guys, and February's looking like a doozy. A bit of this, a bit of that, some out West, others popping up eastside. There's a perfect market for everyone. 

Maybe a little boho luxe shopping? A few bottles of artisanal olive oil? Perhaps a few new zines for the collection. There's a heap of markets to check out in Melbourne this February, so let's get cracking. Clear your diaries, people.  

Cremorne Pop-Up Market

They’re breaking in the new Cubes3121 event space on Church St this week with an epic pop-up market. There’s gonna be local winemakers and foodie brands like boutique brands Rodan & Fields, Charlie Screen, Grace & James and Philippa’s Bakery. They’re also running a #checkinforcharity campaign—$5 will go to BeyondBlue for every person that checks in between 3pm-6pm.

When: 3pm-6pm, Thursday 1 February
