CAMBERWELL SUNDAY MARKET

Camberwell Sunday Market is a popular trash and treasure market held every Sunday by the Rotary Club of Balwyn, in the carpark at the rear of Burke and Riversdale roads, Camberwell. Only second hand goods, or hand-crafted goods, specifically made by the stallholder, excluding food are sold at the market so its great for vintage clothing, crockery and books as well as unusual things like photo albums, typewriters and ornaments.

You never know what you'll find there and with a bit of luck and digging you might uncover that hidden vintage gem. Some stall owners are happy to haggle so you might be able to save a few dollars. It's easy to spend the whole morning wandering through the markets in time for lunch at one of the many cafés and restaurants on Burke Road. The Camberwell Sunday Market raises funds for a wide range of charities raising over $9m for the community. Make sure you take along a hat or a parasol because in Summer the sun can be quite fierce and you may go searching for the shady café before not too long!
