The Hall Market is held on the showgrounds in Hall village, approximately 10 kms from the centre of Canberra. Markets are open 10am to 3pm on the first Sunday of each month, excluding January.

This is one of the largest handmade, home-grown, produce markets in Australia with a great selection of stalls selling everything from dolls houses to live hens – neither of which the typical punter wants. More popular items include craft items, timber products, pottery, leatherwork, handknits, skin care products, dog products, jewellery, toys, honey, jam and preserves, cakes, fruit & vegetables, plants and more.

Typically there will be at least a couple of hundred stalls with an ample supply of food and drinks to keep you busy for at least a couple of hours. These markets are very popular with locals and especially so as dogs (on leashes) are permitted.

Be warned that the area can get very dusty and that while the markets are on a Sunday your Sunday best outfit is best left in the wardrobe.

Barbeques, live music and other entertainment makes a visit a fun, family day out.

Entry fee: Entry is by a gold coin donation helping fund Hartley Lifecare’s disability services. Plenty of parking available but stick to the signposted car parks (cost covered in the gold coin entry fee).
