Meet the artists & buy affordable art or sell your crafts
The substation is Melbourne's newest contemporary community based art centre. Located in Newport it is built in an historic substation. A not-for-profit organisation, they promise to bring you the best in contemporary arts including music, theatre, dance, circus and visual arts, as well as providing the local community with workshops, classes and public programs.

However one of the fascinating events held at the substation is the monthly artists market.

Some of the fun artists offerings on sale

This fascinating market that brings you the best in our local artists was established in 2009. It is a rather unique indoor market which brings together some of the best local and regional artists, including the designers and makers from Melbourne. As well as being a really fun and bustling shopping arena, it also brings fantastic live music provided by the local musicians.

There is a lovely selection of charming stalls which sell things ranging from paintings and photography to fashion handmade jewellery and many more artist inspired creations. The Market is a fun place to find great locally-made items - direct from the artists. You are also able to buy affordable, original art directly. This allows a wonderful opportunity for local artists and crafters to promote and sell their products

The artists market attracts over 600 people each month and is a unique, buzzing and vibrant shopping experience in the inner west of Melbourne.

For Artists:
If you would like to offer your unique art here, contact the organisers as they are keen on uniqueness and originality and would love to hear from you if you fit this description.

For shoppers:
You're sure to find something very unique and perfect for an unusual gift here.
