Hall Markets - Canberra's Best Home-Made & Home-Grown Goods Market

I am very excited to share this find with you all. Some friends and I ventured to the Hall Markets (in Hall, 15 mins from the Canberra CBD). These markets are truly lovely. They have a real country feel, super friendly stallholders who were more than accommodating when I asked if I could photograph their wares, gorgeous handmade items and everything was very reasonably priced!!!

The markets are held on the first Sunday of every month (excluding January). There is plenty of food on offer, yummy coffee (by a Jindabyne coffee company) and even a kids section which had a jumping castle and other kids rides. The highlight is obviously the large range of stalls selling handmade goods, plants, homemade baked goods, jams/conserves, locally grown fresh fruit and veggies etc. I was talking to some stallholders and it seemed that many are from rural NSW and VIC, and travel to the markets in Hall every month.

I was blown away by the goods on offer. Best of all, the prices were so reasonable.
