A much loved event most of us look forward to with anticipation has to be The Finders Keepers Melbourne Market. Especially if you're a conscious shopper and a believer in the go-slow movement that supports investing back into the community by shopping small and local. There's even more to love about the Market this year as FK partner up with Aboriginal Melbourne and City of Melbourne to expand their Indigenous Program for the Melbourne AW22 Market during NAIDOC Week.

This means more opportunities for Aboriginal/Torres Strait Islander owned and operated businesses supporting a diverse range of makers, designers and artists, and a chance for you to finally discover our First Nations stallholders at FK, and meet these new creatives. at the Market that'll run from 8-10 July 2022 (4-9pm Fri and 10am-5pm Sat/Sun). Get your tickets here. Children under 12 are free. You'll find all ticketing details on the page you'll need to pay attention to in regard to the Market being a cashless event, or if you need to edit the details on your ticket. You can also purchase tickets at the Market - however, keep in mind, the queues could be long for this very popular event. For all other information head to the website of this Melbourne/Naarm Autumn Winter Market.
