The Seddon Makers Market (formerly Maribyrnong Makers Market) is a not-for-profit, community based arts and craft market run by a local volunteer group, MMG (Maribyrnong Makers Group) Located in the inner west Melbourne suburb of Seddon, the market celebrates and showcases local makers and beyond.
From our MMG President, Stephen McIvor-Smith:
'Fundamentally, we are a community group made up of a handful of very dedicated and passionate volunteers who, in our tenth year, are bringing you the best community run, not-for-profit design market in Melbourne. Our volunteers and committee members are a great bunch of people who share a passion for promoting the talents of our stall holders, our suburb of Seddon and the profile of our market. Time and time again our most regular feedback from visiting market patrons is that they come away from our markets feeling welcomed. Importantly, they want to come back to enjoy the next market, say hello to friends & explore another little piece of the inner west of Melbourne. We really do go for that genuine level of service and care for both our stall holders, our volunteers and of course our valued patrons.'
And a word from our MMG Treasurer & Co founder, Carmel Kozolup:
'In 2007 I was fortunate to be one of a small group of Seddon residents who shared a desire to hold a high quality makers market in and around Seddon. We saw a need to provide a market place for those talented people producing wonderful creations in their homes and studios. We wanted to cater for established makers as well as nurture first time stallholders who wanted to expand from spare rooms or online stores. From a humble start with 25 stalls at the Uniting Church site in March 2008, the market has gradually increased the number of sites as well as the number of markets held each year. It’s great to be part of this friendly, successful market, where the original intention of showcasing items made in Australia, using sustainable methods and sold by the maker is still a strong feature of the market and attracts quality stallholders, passionate volunteers and satisfied shoppers.'
