About us

The St Kilda Esplande Market is a makers' market and has been a St Kilda Sunday delight since December in 1970.

It's famous for a good reason - there's something for everyone and more!

Grab a bite to eat and enjoy browsing through works by more than 140 artists and craftspeople in Melbourne's open-air gallery by the sea.

Each and every stallholder is the maker of their products. Take the time to ask how the products are made, and you will soon see the love and passion that is poured into each of their one-of-a-kind pieces of work.

From gifts and souvenirs to homewares and jewellery - you will leave with confidence knowing that you have something that is truly one of a kind.

New stalls are added to the market weekly, so there is always something different to catch your eye.

When are we open

Open every Sunday, 10 am to 4 pm (5 pm daylight savings hours) except for the second Sunday in February due to the St Kilda Festival.

If you are planning a visit to the market this Sunday please check the weather forecast for Melbourne and note the market may be closed if weather conditions indicate wind speed higher than 70kph or heat higher than 39C Check the weather on BOM website.

(Please note that some stallholders may choose not to trade in extreme weather conditions).
