The queues say it all
This market is hugely popular and has been running for over 20 years. I've been and can't recommend it enough as a place to pick up all manner of bargains for babies and children.
Chelsea Heights Children's Market
Everything is preloved which to me is also important, especially as babies when some items are never worn more than a handful of times or in some cases not worn at all.
The market is held at Chelsea Heights Community Centre and it costs $2 to enter. It is well worth it as there are 3 rooms jam packed with tables as well as the big hall. The stall holders can be regular on sellers or in many cases just families selling on items no longer needed. You can pick up toys, clothes, shoes, baby baths, furniture, bikes…
Busy & popular for a reason
Expect to queue to get in, that's how popular it is.
There is not a great deal of room for prams and it can be quite hectic so if your child is not a fan of crowds see if you can bring someone along to play with them on the huge field attached to the centre, lots of space to run around.
It is open from 9-12 and there is sometimes a sausage sizzle which also contributes towards fundraising for the community centre.
