The Esplanade Market

Arts & Crafts,



St Kilda

Critics' choice

A hotbed for designers, artists and film-makers

Every Sunday, Melbourne's finest creative folk gather in endless stalls, arranged in line with the palm trees which stand tall on St Kilda's mighty esplanade. Since the 1970s, the market has featured emerging talent in design and handicrafts – think artwork, photography, illustration, jewellery, body products and stationary. At stall numer 67 you'll find potter and musician Jeff Wilmott's ocarinas (small clay flutes), and a few doors up, poke your nose into Ray and Cathie's stall, who have been creating their kiln-fired glass tableware in their Dandenong Ranges studio since 1986. Fashionistas will love Prue Griffith's handmade hats at stall 30, as well as an impressive range of handmade belts, bags and jewellery through the market.
