Trash and Treasure market that will run rain, hail or shine
Sunday Trash and Treasure markets have a tendency to be rained off during the winter, but Cheltenham Rotary Market is one that will never be cancelled due to bad weather.

Held in the undercover car park (off Station Road), The Rotary Club of Cheltenham runs a Trash and Treasure Market / Car Boot Sale every Sunday, rain, hail or shine.

I often pay a visit to the market on a rainy Sunday, as I did last weekend, to stock up on basic essentials and occasionally take home other unexpected bargains.

Some stallholders are regulars at the market, whereas others are one-off stall bookings, selling pre-loved goods from their homes.

There is one stallholder, a Greek lady, that is at the market every Sunday. As well as selling odds and ends, sewing supplies and clothing, she also sells fresh fruit and vegetables grown in her garden.

"I am 76yrs old, nearly 77yrs you know" She tells me. "I get up at 5am every Sunday to come to the market, but I won't be here next Sunday, it is Greek Easter!" I spent $10 on her stall on various fruit and veg produce, and I have to say, her fresh figs are amazing!

I also stumbled upon a stall selling Australian handmade plant oil soaps for just $2 each.

The lemongrass and myrtle is by far their best selling soap, I purchased one myself; so deliciously refreshing and invigorating.

Expect to find plenty of other stalls selling cheap plants for your yard, fresh flowers, bric-a-brac, pre-loved clothes and toys, plus there is another regular stallholder selling fresh free range chicken eggs ($2.50 half dozen, $5 a dozen).

Garden tools


New stallholders are welcome, $15 per stall, bookings are essential, contact details found here.

Cheltenham Rotary Market runs every Sunday, 8am - 1pm. It may be on the smaller side compared other Trash and Treasure markets found in Melbourne, but at least you'll know you don't have to rely on the weather for the market to run.
