About
We regret to advise that we will be temporarily closed from this coming Sunday 29th March 2020. Our closure is due to the increase in Covid-19 cases in the ACT and the subsequent restrictions around crowd numbers and implementing social distancing measures across Canberra. Stay up to date on our reopening date on social media, or via our website. Lovers of fine hand crafted wares, clothing collectors, food fanatics and jewellery junkies are just a few of the people who make their way to Canberra’s famous Old Bus Depot Markets every Sunday. In a fabulous old industrial building you will experience the endless colour, tastes, sounds and atmosphere that is “Canberra’s Sunday Best”. Find your favourite stallholder and visit the Markets this Sunday from 10am-4pm.

Great markets. Lots of foods to sample, can have lunch and look at local crafts and produce.
Parking is a bit hard sometimes but worth the perseverance

Cute place with an amazing variety!
Nov. 2019
Despite the outer appearance, it houses a huge variety of shops from food stalls to book shops! Do note that there is a slope that takes you to an upper level as well! I loved the second-hand book shop that sold books for as cheap as AUD$3! Definitely worth the visit!

Busy but a unique and fun experience
Sep. 2019
A fun little market where you are bound to find someone a gift or find something really fun for yourself. Many unique things to find and see, and some incredible foods to try.
I think the only downside is if youre easily overwhelmed by busy places, then finding the enjoyment out of the markets may be a little difficult, but Im sure you will still manage. Definitely a popular places, and does get quite crowded, but I definitely recommend visiting.

Hi Opethlia, We are glad you had an enjoyable time fossicking through the stalls, if crowds are an issue attending around 1pm would be best. We look forward to seeing you again at the Markets. Kind Regards, Richard & OBDM Team

Great market with huge range of food and gifts
Dec. 2019 • Friends
Love this market for myself and buying gifts. There is heaps of local produce including vegetables, eggs, bakery, fudge etc. Then lots of hot food to eat in or take away. Most places do tastings and are very helpful with dietary requirements.
There's also second hand clothes, upcycled jewellery, new jewellery, native plants, baby toys, ugg boots, cards, games, art, candles etc.
A bit busy before in the weeks leading up to Christmas but manageable. There were real Christmas trees there this week too!

Pleasant surprise
Oct. 2019
I wasn’t expecting much from this market. Thought it would be full of touristy mass produced products like the Queen Vic in Melbourne or the Salamanca market in Hobart. So it was a nice surprise to find good quality hand made items for sale, retro and vintage goods and delicious foods, plus more.
We didn’t intend to eat there but there were so many stalls with gorgeous baked goods. We couldn’t resist the strawberry tarts from the stall in the corner - they were delicious.
There is plenty of seating inside and out. Perhaps some umbrellas for shade at the outdoor tables would be good as all those tables were in full sun.
There was live music at the entrance, some seating near that would be good so visitors can sit and enjoy the music rather than just walk past.
Aside from those two minor issues it’s a good market. Definitely recommend it.

Such fun looking at all the stalls
Oct. 2019
Open on Sundays! A huge hall full of everything.. from food stalls, drink stalls, candles, lotions, potions, leather ware (bags, belts, etc), second hand books, metal work, linen, clothing, and so much more. Can lose yourself for a long time. A very enjoyable time!
