The Arts Centre Melbourne Weekend Markets is back from 13 Nov to 19 Dec 2021 from 10am to 4pm, just in time for some Christmas shopping. It's where you'll find wonderful treasures, handmade by local artisans. From jewellery, soaps, scarves and candles, to woodcraft, leather goods, clothing and paintings, you'll find it all at this vibrant market in the heart of the city.

Do note that things may be a little different as stalls along St Kilda Road are spatially distanced due to capacity restrictions. Do adhere to Covid safe practices, and as such, please DO NOT touch the products on display. The makers will be happy to assist you. Practice the good habit of checking in via QR code when visiting and masks are strongly recommended where physical distancing is not possible.

There's always excitement in the air as you walk up towards the market, generally with Choo La La, a familiar sight, tempting you to sample their fresh, hot nuts. Alongside the artisan market, you'll find many a delicious delicacy on offer. With no two stalls the same, the market holds your attention no matter how many times you frequent it.

Come prepared with your ready list of loved ones to gift for Christmas. You'll find to find that unique, beautifully handmade gift that's locally made. I've bought some beautifully made sterling silver jewellery at this market that resides along St Kilda Road between Hamer Hall and the Theatres Building, and the atmosphere never fails to delight me. If you're planning on going in this weekend, take advantage of taking that trip into the city and enjoy other events such as the following.
