History

Since 2003, a small part of Rose Street has sprung to life each weekend.

Found in the heart of eclectic Fitzroy, The Rose St. Artists’ Market is a unique outlet where emerging artists and designers showcase their work to Melbourne and the world!

Roughly based on similar projects in London, Berlin and in particular the DUMBO Collective; a market set up by artists under the Brooklyn Bridge in New York – The Rose St. Artists’ Market utilises a former junkyard in the back streets of Fitzroy to display the work of up to 70 artists and designers each Saturday and Sunday, some emerging and some more established.

Since its inception, The Market has gained the reputation of being one of Melbourne’s hidden treasures, wowing people with the high quality of work on offer. There’s no telling what products you might find. From quirky furniture design and stunning fashion through to intricate jewellery and unique paintings. In fact, over 600 individuals are listed on our growing catalogue of artists and designers here each week selling everything from the wacky to the wonderful!

The Rose St. Artists’ Market has taken a fresh approach to the traditional market concept giving you the opportunity peruse the numerous displays, collect, source and commission unique works; and of course meet, greet and speak with artists and designers in person.
