There is an a ambience about the monthly Eltham Market with trinkets glittering and twinkling in the wind, and a feeling of being close to nature, that one could imagine a gypsy, trader or musician wandering amidst an English country market.

A good combination of collectable home made gifts, and embracing the local craftsmanship of the Eltham townspeople, there is a selection of food, cheeses and wines on offer, and fresh fruit and vegetables.

Particularly glorious on a summer's day, on an autumn or wintry weekend it beckons with a mysterious mood for you to walk between its aisles of stalls, and watch your reflection marking your walk, in the jewellery and glass picture frames.

February through to October, every third Sunday, in the heart of the bush getaway of Eltham, a haven for the artistic life and craftspeople of Melbourne.

The delightful Dutch pancakes, poffertjes are once again available to sample.

You can also become a stallholder by filling out an application form online; the requirement is to be an architect of a homegrown product, or a producer of original artistic or craft works. The works have to be of fine quality and of artistic merit.

The market setting is Alistair Knox Place, Panther Place, Eltham.
