The Creswick Market is a community market that aims to provide local residents and visitors to the Hepburn Shire with a fabulous market experience that promotes both the produce of the region and the artists & designers in a unique country atmosphere.
We currently have over 90 stallholders showcasing their wares, with a rotation of new and interesting stalls every month.
Where will you find us?
Located in the picturesque and historic township of Creswick, just 20 minutes to either Ballarat or Daylesford. We share our home with the Creswick Neighbourhood Centre, Victoria Street, Creswick, Victoria.
Creswick is a former gold-mining town, nestled in the heart of the Goldfields, Macedon Ranges and Spa Country, very central with only a 80 minute drive from Melbourne, Bendigo or Geelong.
When are the markets held?
The Creswick Market is open 9:00am till 1:00pm, on the first and third Saturday of every month, all year round.
Who will be coming to the Market?
Every man and his dog (yes, friendly dogs are allowed) We currently have visitor numbers over 2000 – so our small town market, isn’t so small anymore.
The Creswick Market attracts people from all walks of life who are passionate about handcrafted items, modern design, vintage goods, gourmet food and fresh locally grown produce.
How do we spread the word?
Well, the Internet for starters – hang on, you already know that! We also tell people about our fabulous market by advertising on radio and in ‘hip’ print publications both locally and out of town. Additionally we have a great selection of posters, flyers and fridge magnets.
But our key is our much loved Facebook page – www.facebook.com/CreswickMarket
Who should apply for a stall?
Easy – Are you Friendly? Local to our Region? Focus on Quality? and Value Community?
Our sites are casual, not ‘permanent’ to offer a constantly changing shopping experience for our visitors. No, dull and boring market place here.
What is the selection process?
It’s pretty simple – we look at the quality of your products, the appearance of your stall display and how unique you are.
Unfortunately, we can’t accept everyone’s application but that doesn’t mean we don’t like your products! Our aim is to provide a diverse market experience for everyone who visits.
Do I need public liability insurance?
We strongly recommend having your own stallholders public liability insurance for the amount of $10 million (you might sleep a little better at night!)
Can I park my vehicle at my stall?
We know it can a pain sometimes to unload, but we find it improves the overall look of the market to exclude cars onsite. Parking is generally limited to our friendly producers.
