The Finders Keepers markets is a massive three-day event, featuring over 270 independent art and design stalls in the heritage-listed Royal Exhibition Building in the Carlton Gardens. Expect to find lovely local makers from Melbourne, as well as talented favourites from all around Australia.

Each market is uniquely and carefully curated, featuring emerging 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! Supporting small feels good.

Introducing the Stone & Wood Gatherer Bar
Beer is boring, right? We all know someone who thinks this. Hey, maybe that someone is you.
The Gatherer challenges this preconceived idea of regular beer. With its blush hue, zesty fruit twist and design-led packaging, this refreshing drink brings a bright buzz to any social gathering and will make you wonder where it’s been all your life! Join us at The Gatherer Bar this season for a beer bound to put the spring back in your step! 

Discover music
We“re back with an eclectic mix of soulful tunes, indie bangers, and dance-ready DJ sets! Live music all weekend is just another reason to join us this season!
