Each Saturday and Sunday the Rose Street Market gathers some of Melbourne's most exciting artists and designers to display their wares and talk all things handmade. Weave your way through the crowds and duck into the warehouse to check out the handmade fashion, food and curios for sale. The artists are usually on hand to compare crochet needles and discuss their work, so drop in for a squiz, a chat and a haircut from the resident hairdresser.
Every Sunday, Melbourne's finest creative folk gather in endless stalls, arranged in line with the palm trees that stand tall on St Kilda's famed esplanade. Since the 1970s, the market has featured emerging talent in design and handicrafts – think artwork, photography, illustration, jewellery, body products and stationery. There are now more than 140 stalls every week, and the best part is, the market is right next to Luna Park and St Kilda Beach, so you can make a day of it.
