About Your Market:
Red Hill is the ‘grand dame’ of Victoria’s craft markets. Located in one of the State’s most picturesque settings, Red Hill Community Market started in 1975 as a community based event where 28 local producers and crafts people came to sell and barter their goods and excess produce.
While the bartering is a thing of the past, the atmosphere, colour and excitement of those early years is still very much alive. Soak in the exceptional atmosphere and regenerate your senses at one of our delightful markets. There is something for everyone from old world to modern contemporary, a labyrinth of unique treasures worth discovering.
Dedicated commitment to quality brings together over 300 talented stallholders who regularly demonstrate enormous pride in their work by producing original creations of the highest quality. It’s a proven feast for the mind, body and soul, a fascinating eclectic mix of textures, materials and colours that make up the vast range of individually designed products. There is little doubt that on the first Saturday of the month (sept to May) between 8am and 1pm, the Red Hill Community Market is the place to be, Set the alarm clock nice and early if you want to avoid the crowds.
