In 2015, the Rotary Club of Camberwell was appointed by the City of Boroondara to manage the day to day operation of the Hawthorn Craft Market. The market is a local icon and one of the longest running makers’ markets in Melbourne. It has a reputation for selling for high quality, beautifully made items from a range of designers and dedicated artisans.
The market, generally comprising over 40 stallholders, sells jewellery, home wares, fashion, accessories, toys, beauty products, children's wear, plants plus a range of one off individual items. The Market offers many regular stalls, as well as new products from new designers each month.
The Rotary Club of Camberwell also organises the Camberwell Art Show- one of Australia’s best known competitions, exhibitions and sale of art by leading and emerging artists. All proceeds from the Hawthorn Craft Market are being directed to the Club’s Charitable Account to ensure continuity of the great work being done by Rotary in the local and wider community.
