Everyone loves a good market but no one does markets quite like Castlemaine.
Every month the city’s creative juices start flowing and it’s all on show at the ever-popular Castlemaine Artists Market.
Held on the second Sunday of each month, the market is an eclectic and constantly evolving collection of amazing creations big and small.
This isn’t a place you go to collect bits and pieces that can be found in every chain store in the land – this is the place you go when you’re looking for something especially artistic and unique.
Among the stalls you will find everything from sculpture to fashion, paintings to home décor. It’s all surrounded by a vibrant market atmosphere replete with performers, food and all the trimmings.
The market is committed to promoting the handmade items, the kind of creations born of artistic vision, skill and craft. These aren’t just trinkets – the creators of the items in store at the market have poured their hearts and souls into their work, and it shows.
The markets are a year-round attraction in Castlemaine with the exception of January and June. In June the markets are held over the Queen’s Birthday long-weekend and they take a break in January to cool off after the popular Christmas Twilight Markets.
The markets can be found near the Historic Castlemaine Market Building – it’s hard to miss.
