COVID UPDATE – To operate safely in the pandemic, we need to shift to a larger site with much more open space. Unfortunately, this means we are no longer based at Brown Hill Hall.
Until the end of 2020, Brown Hill Market will relocate to Zoo Drive, Lake Wendouree (just north of the Botanical Gardens in central Ballarat). We are still in discussions with potential sites in the Brown Hill/Ballarat East area and hope to return to the area in 2021. It was important to provide certainty to stallholders and customers, so we’ve made the decision to fix our location until the end of the year. We apologise to those Brown Hill locals who loved having us just around the corner and hope you’ll nip over to Zoo Drive to reconnect with our favourite stallholders. Some stallholders with delicate products who loved being indoors in the Brown Hill Hall may now only attend during warmer weather.
Operating hours are 9 am – 1pm.
Background: In July 2018, the Fourth Saturday market which had been at Lake Wendouree for many years relocated to Brown Hill. Nearly all our existing stallholders came over to Brown Hill, so it was instantly a very established market with over 30 stalls. Since then, we’ve had huge interest from new stallholders and have been very happy to welcome them to Brown Hill. Many are locals from Brown Hill. We’ve had great support from the Brown Hill Progress Association and the Brown Hill Community Newsletter.
The Brown Hill community have really got behind the market – thank you! We regularly have over 50 stalls so there’s plenty to see & buy! Please keep inviting friends to come along – we’ve had brilliant feedback about the feel of the market and continue to work hard for steady growth in both customer and stall numbers. Brown Hill Market is a quality event for both locals and visitors, with a mix of stalls unique to this market.
