The Makers Market is an expression of the creative spirit of those that live and work locally: bespoke and authentic, showcasing the work of local artists, designers, makers and up-cyclers.
It's free and family and pet-friendly in the welcoming surrounds of Abbots Yard:
329 Victoria Street (corner Nicholson Street - opposite The Hive shopping centre), Abbotsford.
Our next Twilight Christmas event - date tbc...
Victoria Street Alive! has purposely focused this market as an opportunity for those creators that live and work in the Victoria Street precinct (bound by Hoddle, Highett, Church and Langridge streets). With the COVID-19 pandemic severely impacting those working in the cultural and creative professions, this is an opportunity for those in our ‘hood to showcase their expertise: from ceramics, leatherwork, coffee, clothing, condiments, plants, local artists, beauty care, jewellery and much more.
The Market also includes creative, hands-on activities for children and music performed by local musicians.
The market coordinator lives in the precinct, ensuring an authentic and inner-city flavour, making this market distinct and unique.
Victoria Street Alive! is a project of Residents for Victoria Street Drug Solutions Inc, local residents committed to enhancing the vibrancy, vitality and visibility of Victoria Street, Abbotsford and Richmond through community-based activations and events.
Victoria Street Alive! is funded through sponsorship and funds raised from our community events.
