The St Kilda Esplanade Market, St Kilda

#2 of 7 in Shopping in St Kilda
Since 1970, The Esplanade Market has been a St Kilda Sunday delight.

It's famous for a good reason - there's something for everyone and more!

Enjoy browsing through works by more than 120 artists and craftspeople in Melbourne's open-air gallery by the sea.

Each and every stallholder has a hand in making the products being sold. Take the time to ask how the products are made, and you will soon see the love and passion that is poured into each of our one-of-a-kind pieces of work.

From gifts and souvenirs to furniture and jewellery - you will leave with confidence knowing that you will take home something that is truly one of a kind.

New stalls are added to the market on a regular basis, so there is always something different to catch your eye .

When are we open

Open every Sunday, 10 am - 4 pm (May - Sept) and 10 am - 5 pm (Oct - April) come rain, hail or shine.

(Please note that some stallholders may choose not to trade in extreme weather conditions).

How to get here

You can’t miss us- you will see our tents lined up along the Upper Esplanade.

  • This is an icon of St.Kilda and not to be missed by tourists. Local artisans sharing their talents and creations. The walk is easy and picturesque. Head to the Espy for a drink after the markets for a great day out.
  • An incredible beach that's so close to the city, it's beside a relatively nice area with quaint shops and restaurants. The board walk also allows for nice strolls.
