Grainger Market, home to over 100 clothing and produce stores, also hosts an Arts and Crafts fair in its events space once a month.

The increased foot traffic drives customers throughout the market, which creates a genuine buzz for all of the retailers. However, unlike the loud, over-enthusiastic regulars, the artists are quite happy to sit back and let you peruse in your own time.

Wear it or display it - or both!

The Grainger Market Arts and Crafts Fair is open on the second Saturday of every month, with the same opening hours as the regular market of 9:00 am to 5:30 pm. Be sure to bring cash as many retailers do not have Eftpos facilities, and use the opportunity to grab a hand-roasted coffee or a sweet treat.
