The St Kilda Markets are very artistic and diverse. Great range of products mostly handmade. Some beautiful photography and 15 year old bought a panoramic of Hosier Lane.
Lovely stroll along Esplanade with a great vibe of people. You’ll be hard-pressed not to buy something....More
A bewildering number and range of stalls populates the length of the esplanade. There are a few food stalls but most are arts and craft. Clothing, footwear, jewellery, and original artwork abound.
Parking can be difficult so you are advised to use the tram -...More

The market is one thing, but the Upper Esplanade offers incredible views of the sea and the sunset. I often come here just for a walk along the beach, to see the penguins on the pier (breakwater) and to watch the weather approach over the...More
We arrived in St Kilda first thing on Sunday morning (27 hour flight from UK) so the market was our first real Australian experience. It's lovely and full of local produce and artistry. I recommend it.
Loved wandering up and down the market. Really has something for everyone which in my experience is unusual. I got hand painted boomerangs and the wife landed a neat silver hair bunch. Perfect way to spend Sunday morning
Probably good for tourists to Australia with a few quirky items. Lots and lots of jewellery stalls, stalls with various prints and paintings. Not fabulous stalls but in a lovely setting overlooking the ocean so still worth a wander.
