There are four great markets to chose from in the City of Port Phillip:

St Kilda Esplanade Market located between Fitzroy Street & Acland Street beside Luna Park in St Kilda is considered one of Melbourne’s most popular art and craft markets. Every Sunday for over 40 years, this famous sea-side makers’ market has delighted crowds with a wide assortment of unique products and curios for sale. Shop stall after stall of handcrafted jewellery, gifts, souvenirs, wearable and decorative arts directly from the exhibiting artisans who crafted them - all while taking in the picturesque views of the St Kilda shoreline. Bliss! Open every Sunday of the year from 10am - 5pm - in Winter until 4pm.

The famous South Melbourne Market is one of Melbourne’s best fresh produce markets and one of the oldest continuing market operating in Melbourne. It opened in 1867 and continues to bustle every Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 8 - 4pm with gourmet delights, a wide array of seasonal fresh produce, gorgeous fresh flowers, homeware stalls and emerging designer wares.

Gasworks Farmers Market in Albert Park is on the third Saturday of every month.
