The Best Markets in Canberra for Local and Handmade Goodies

From organic farmer's produce and food stalls to sustainable fashion and hand-made gifts, these are the best markets in Canberra to visit.

Haig Park Village Market

Is there anything better than waking up on a weekend morning to the smell of freshly brewed coffee and croissants, having a lie-in, then heading to the markets for a browse? We think not. Canberra is full of creatives, makers and producers so you're spoilt for choice when it comes to weekend markets. 

Whether you're keen to pick up a hand-made gift, a bunch of sweet blooms or fresh ingredients for an end-of-week feast, these are the best markets in Canberra to check out this weekend.

Handmade Markets 

Held quarterly, these markets are the best place to pick up artisan goodies for gifting. Everything at the market is certified Australian made which makes shopping an absolute delight. Each market is curated to include over 250 food, drink and shopping stalls and you'll be able to find all kinds of goodies from ceramics and prints through to natural wine and ready-to-eat treats. The Handmade Market even offers a low sensory hour for shoppers who would like to enjoy shopping with fewer lights, smells and sounds - you'll just need to register ahead of time.
