St Andrews Market
Enjoy the St. Andrews Community Market every Saturday (apart from days of Total Fire Ban).

Where can you get a steaming hot chai, a vintage outfit, fresh fruit and veg for the week, a birthday present for Great Aunty Flo and a rejuvenating massage within an hour? "Nowhere. That place doesn't exist" I hear you say, and to be honest, I thought exactly the same thing, until I stumbled across the St.Andrews Community Market one Saturday morning.

St Andrews Market
Taste the delicious food while meandering around the stalls at the St. Andrews Market.

The market is a hub of activity set in a stunning eucalypt forest. Turn one way and you'll see and smell delicious tofu wraps being created, turn another and you might spot a second-hand book you've been looking for since last year. Other items to look out for include:

Handmade leather wallets

Delightful homemade muffins

Funky t-shirts – E.T has had a revival

Warm woollen socks for frosty mornings

Delicious vegetable samosas

A variety of clothes, both secondhand and new

Secondhand tools to decorate the shadow board in your shed

St Andrews Market
There are a huge range of stalls to enjoy at the St. Andrews Community Market.

St Andrews Market
From hairstyles to fresh fruit and veg the St Andrews Market has it covered.

After you've spent time meandering around the stalls head up to the Chai Tent at the top of the hill. You'll find yourself sipping on scrumptious chai while enjoying scintillating conversation.

The market is open every Saturday (except for days of Total Fire Ban) from 8am-2pm and can be found on the corner of Kangaroo Ground-St Andrews rd and Heidelberg-Kinglake rd in St.Andrews. Admission is free.

St Andrews Hotel
Pop into the St Andrews Hotel after the market.

It is located opposite the St.Andrews Hotel if you feel like heading over for some music and a beverage in the afternoon when the market has closed.

Your Comment
We live in the area for over 20 years and always found something we wanted at this market, lovely fresh flowers, hand spun wool, yummy spring rolls and fresh fruit. Be prepared for some alternative people, they love this market, but it's a great place to spend a couple of hours on a Saturday morning, then pop over the the St. Andrews Pub for a meal or a drink. The bakery behind the pub uses a wood fired oven to make their bread and cakes, which are so good.
