The Finders Keepers markets is a massive three day event, featuring over 270 independent art and design stalls in the world-renowned Royal Exhibition Building in the Carlton Gardens. Expect to find some lovely local makers from Melbourne, as well as talented favourites from all around Australia.
Each market is uniquely and carefully curated, featuring amazing new talent and debut stalls at every event. With dedicated food and beverage stalls, live music, two bars, three stations serving fresh coffee and Melbourne’s favourite Food Trucks, there’s something for everyone to enjoy! Our markets launched in Melbourne in 2010 and have been steadily growing ever since, so come along and find out what the fuss is about!
The Finders Keepers Indigenous Program continues in 2019. The Melbourne AW19 recipient is Amber Days. We’re incredibly proud to be supporting this inspiring label that collaborates with independent Indigenous Artists to create meaningful collections.
