Hello Melbourne!

2024 is our 16th year of making market magic and we’re bringing the fun back to Melbourne this July at the beautiful Royal Exhibition Building!

Enjoy the ultimate creative day out supporting brand-new and established designers, artists, makers, musicians and foodies all in one jam-packed event. Our festival-style markets are a celebration of creativity, mindful making and thoughtful buying, and we can’t wait for you to join us back at the Royal Exhibition Building this winter!

WIN! By purchasing tickets online, you'll go in the draw to WIN one of 5 Peppermint Magazine subscriptions!

NEW: We have introduced a low sensory hour on Sunday from 9am - 10am, and you can purchase a ticket for that here (it includes your general admission too). The lights will be dimmed, music off, and noise levels kept low during this hour.


Get your own 3 Minute Market Portrait
At the top of our market wishlist is a 3-minute portrait by Italian illustrator Eleonora Arosio. For only $30 per person, she’ll draw you as one of her characters, so make sure to wear your cutest outfit! Spots are limited, so visit her stall to get on the list, and snag your very own one-of-a-kind portrait!

Sensory play with Indigenous Program stallholder Ochre Dough
Mikaela Egan is the founder behind Ochre Dough, a natural playdough and crafts brand infused with native bush tucker that inspires multi-sensory learning through play.

Follow your nose to their wonderfully-smelling stall and let your creativity flow!

Be part of communal art
Everyone is invited to take time out from strolling the market aisles and contribute to our Mindfulness Mural with artwork by local illustrator/ artist Yan Yan Candy Ng.

Kids and the young at heart can get crafty at the SEEK art space, creating your own tile to add to the market artwork. Parents need a break? FK stallholder Hey Doodle is adding kids colouring mats as you take time out in the Parents Lounge.

Spot which event posters you recognise on The Finders Keepers' archival poster wall - how many of the markets did you attend? And while you're there, duck around the other side and pop a sticker on the Tell Us More Wall!

Celebrate our New + Debut  
Meet, support and fall for more than 50 new stallholders at this event, with all newbies to the FK fam in one area!

Caffeine, cookies, cakes and cocktails
Enjoy some old school hospitality at the Coffee Supreme Cafe or stop into the Coffee on Cue nook (right at the front doors!), then grab a sweet treat from the likes of Billy Van Creamy, Cakehouse Collective and Mrs Browne Bakes (and more)!

Pick up a natural vino from the Minimum Wines bar, Collingwood-brewed beers (including non-alc) from Molly Rose Brewing or a cheeky marg (non-alc too!) from Listo.

There'll be plenty of savoury lunch and dinner munches, from bao to pasta, Vietnamese and Middle Eastern street food to ward off the market hangries.

DJ Lineup
Boogie to the beats from our local DJ lineup: Small Fry, Lychee Dream, Rainbow Chan and Yeo, Friday night and all weekend.
