Bringing high quality makers markets to picturesque locations across Victoria since 1975

Our History

We believe in small beginnings.

In 1975, four couples at a dinner party envisaged a market for local people to sell or barter their seasonal produce, as a well as providing an outlet for crafts and foods.

They had a dream to create a place in Red Hill, located in the Hinterland on the Mornington Peninsula, where local producers, artists and craftspeople could meet to trade their wares.

Their dream became a reality and Craft Markets Australia was born.

Over forty years later we proudly run markets in some of the most beautiful locations in Victoria.

Step into a Craft Market and be enchanted by the fascinating mix of on trend creative stalls as well as the stalls you recognise from your childhood.

Wander, taste, enjoy and be inspired.


At Craft Markets Australia, we’re committed to a simple philosophy. Providing high-quality market experiences in some of Victoria’s most beautiful locations.

We’ve been bringing communities together over well-made, home-grown and locally produced items for more than four decades now. Over that time, we’ve developed a network of producers, crafters, growers and patrons, each of whom looks forward to our next meeting.

From the very tip of the Mornington Peninsula in historic Point Nepean, to the rolling hills of Gippsland in Lardner Park, the majestic peaks and valleys at Yarra Glen, the bustling hub of Mornington Racecourse, and of course our flagship event, the Red Hill Market – now a tourist attraction in its own right – as well as many more, we ensure our markets aren’t just another shopping trip: they’re a family day out, a chance to connect with local and regional makers, to explore a new part of the world, and indulge in a more sustainable circle of consumption. We’re all about high-quality – the freshest, the most creative, the best made and the most unique. Our sellers are in agreement – which is why that’s what you’ll find beneath their marquees.  

We pride ourselves on bringing you experiences that people of all ages can enjoy. Along with our extended family of community volunteers, makers and producers, we look forward to welcoming you to one of our scenic markets soon.
