It’s been a tough two years for the Old Bus Depot Markets. First, they were closed for three weeks in early 2020 due to hail damage; then came COVID, then the discovery of lead dust last year—but they’re back, baby!

Started back in 1994 by Canberra women Diane Hinds and Morna Whiting, the OBDM was taken over by Anthony Niravong in 2016. A Sunday tradition, each week sees shoppers pour into the sprawling space to browse 180 stalls and support local producers and makers.

Every Sunday, 9.30 am – 2.30 pm | 21 Wentworth Ave, Kingston | obdm.com.au

Haig Park Village Markets

Taking place every Sunday rain, hail or shine, the Haig Park Village Markets has fresh produce, beautiful flowers, artisan breads, meats, treats and more. You can even enjoy a picnic in the park before grabbing your essentials for the week!

Capital Region Farmers Markets 

With over 100 stallholders each week, the Capital Region Farmers Market at EPIC Park has endless options when it comes to freshly picked, grown and hand crafted produce.

Fill the garden using their great selection of natives and landscape plants, fruit trees, seedlings and shrubs or fill your stomach with freshly baked bread, cakes, macarons and croissants.

This village market is located at Canberra College, making it the perfect place to duck in to grab what you need (and maybe a few things you don’t). Order an egg and bacon roll to start the morning as you explore the best of fresh seasonal veggies, handmade pasta and pet treats.
