The massive covered space above Rosebank Mall (which means plenty of parking space) accommodates a wide range of talented artists working with myriad materials, from steel to beads, wood to paper, as well as clothing stalls selling fashion made with African print fabrics, second-hand books, records and CD vendors, painters, candle-makers, cheese-mongers and vintage clothing enthusiasts.
There is a real flea market feel to this event and every week brings new treasures to be found. Don't leave without buying something to eat from one of the delicious food stalls. Our favourites include the irresistible spicy Malay fish and beef rendang curry and the filling Mexican tacos.
The market has a great regular events lineup that includes live music performances at the rooftop bar, car boot sales and Vintage Sundays on the last Sunday of every month. Support the ‘Stand for Hope’; each week the market provides a stall to a local charity to promote its cause.
Kids will love the activities at the free Kids' Zone which include fun crafting activities.
