Come hunting for a bargain

Find Creative Artwork from Rosie George Designs at Upmarket Unley


Markets in Adelaide are an addiction for many people. A chance to get out and explore new places. Browsing artisan goods and handmade jewellery in craft market stalls, the hunt for something with appeal at the right price. The thrill of finding a bargain. And finally settling down with a tasty treat from a market food stall to reward yourself on a successful mission.

It's like shopping on steroids, except that you don't need to travel as far to find what you're looking for.

Browsing the Market Stalls at Etsy Adelaide Upmarket Unley Market


The Adelaide Unley markets in Adelaide will appeal to everyone who likes artisanal products and crafts. It's conveniently located a short way south of Adelaide, upstairs in the Unley Shopping Centre car park. The market is very new but word is spreading rapidly though word of mouth and in the Etsy online community. When I visited there were many people browsing the market stalls on a warm sunny day.

Maude's Daughter Etsy Shop and Market Stalls for Designer Bags


Etsy shop owners of all ages were represented at Unley. Rosie George Designs had a range of creative artwork and greeting cards for sale with modest prices. Maud's Daughter is another Etsy shop who were displaying a unique and eclectic range of bags and purses. Maud's Daughter can also be found at times at Flinders Street Markets in Adelaide.

Handmade Jewellery from Johanna's Emporium at These Markets in Adelaide


Johanna's Emporium sells handmade jewellery customised in retro designs, but reassembled vintage and antique jewellery is also available. Another range of goods from Johanna's Emporium is baby accessories such as mittens, hats, and babies' socks.

We liked the range of retro and vintage clothing and goods at The Fabulous Scavenger. They were doing a great trade at Etsy Adelaide Unley, selling recycled and repurposed goodies of all sorts. When not at Unley you can also find The Fabulous Scavenger selling their artisan goods at the Flinders Street Market.

The Fabulous Scavenger at Upmarket Unley


I think it's fair to say that most of the market stalls I saw had more appeal for women. Decorative homewares, knitwear, toys and baby accessories were common, and handmade jewellery was also popular. A couple of stalls offering garden plants had a good range of herbs and succulent plants, while your canine companion could pick up a gourmet treat too.

Fleurieu Roast for Great Coffee


Face painting for children is available for $5, but there weren't any other activities for kids when I visited. However there were several food stalls where families were filling up for lunch. The Fleurieu Roast cafe had great coffee, and was a welcome place to rest and relax.

Salted Caramel Inc - Available at Upmarket Unley or the Etsy Shop


Adelaide's multicultural mix was reflected in the food market stalls: La Creperie - A Taste of France offered both sweet and savoury surprises. Unfortunately I was too late to get a curry puff from A Taste of Traditional, but managed to find some fresh strawberries from the Fleurieu Peninsula. Salted Caramel Inc is another Etsy shop that tempted me, but I couldn't decide between their yummy treats and delights from Fantasy Fudge.

There are plenty of market stalls at Adelaide Unley Market to appeal to the most discerning retail therapist. The market is only quite new, but is expected to become a regular monthly Unley attraction. There is no website, but you can find more about Unley on the Etsy Adelaide or Unley Facebook pages. If you're a fan of handmade or vintage goods, you will feel right at home here. It's much more fun than visiting an Etsy shop online

'The Fabulous Scavenger' sounds like my kind of stall. I don't think they were there last time I went to the Etsy Unley market.
