Following record numbers at the Handmade Market in June, the team has decided to increase the number of stallholders at the September market to 220. This will make the event Handmade’s biggest to date, extending from the Budawang building at EPIC into the Coorong building as well. Stalls will include Australian made offerings in the categories of homewares, children’s items, fashion, jewellery and gourmet products.

New Indoor Food Court

It’s food glorious food all the way for September’s Handmade Market. We are very pleased to announce the return of the Handmade Food Court, back in style, inside one of the EPIC pavilions with plenty of seating and music.

With hot food vans, a hot chocolate stall and two coffee bars, a wine bar and boutique beers, this event promises great shopping and plenty of relaxation. Providing the market crowds with flavoursome and tender meat, Smoking Brothers will be on hand with succulent grills and roasts steeped in their own recipe sauces. Le Petit Breton, our French crêpe van, will be selling a range of freshly made sweet and savoury crêpes. Free range pulled pork is one of the specialities of the Burra Berkshire food van and handmade wursts are on sale at Berlin Bangers. For the Italian lovers, Pizza 2U are experts in wood fired pizza.

Two speciality coffee bars, Two Before Ten and Art of Espresso will be serving superb coffee in a quick and efficient manner and Pure Melt Chocolate will be on hand for a delicious hot chocolate or sweet treat. Bentspoke Brewing Co. will cater for the beer lovers with their unique range of craft beers and Mount Majura Vineyard will be bringing their range of local wines. All this complements and adds to the extensive offering of take-home gourmet products from ice cream to chillies.
