Market people are passionate people. As a combined entity they are passionate about local talent, arts and crafts, designers, creators and artists. For true market-loving devotees, the Kensington Market is an integral part of the boutique market community.

A minimum of 70 stallholders makes this market truly unique. Think fresh produce, designer fashion, children's wear, jewellery and visual art surrounded by live music and you are immediately transported. Other items on offer include essential oils, candles, toys, jewellery, acupressure, specialty homewares, clothing and accessories, art pieces, bags and plants just to whet your appetite.

More than just a market, the Kensington Market becomes a day out with fun activities designed especially for the kids, face painting, buskers and animal farm.
