Canberra’s Sunday Best

Old Bus Depot Markets, KingstonLooking for the perfect Sunday in Canberra?  Then be sure to include a visit to the national award-winning Old Bus Depot Markets in Kingston. Set in a fabulous old industrial building, you’ll love the colours, tastes, sounds and atmosphere of ‘Canberra’s Sunday Best’.  From quality handcrafted homewares and jewellery, through to gourmet food and fresh produce, it’s simply a must-do in Canberra.

Not your average market, each week you will find over 200 stalls of exceptional quality, featuring items all handcrafted by local and regional people.

Gorgeous, stylish designs, the latest trends in fashion, homewares and accessories, you’re sure to find it at the Old Bus Depot Markets. Whether you’re visiting to shop or not, you’ll most likely leave with either a special something for you, or someone else.  It could be some stunning antique china, an eye-catching piece of jewellery, on-trend fabrics or cushions of all shapes and sizes – there really is something for everyone.

Located in the exciting and up-and-coming redevelopment area, the Kingston Foreshore, this beautiful market is set amongst some of Canberra’s most spectacular scenery. The city meets the lake aside Wentworth Avenue where the Old Bus Depot is located. An historical Canberra icon, this building dates back to early Canberra, when it was originally used as a transport hub.

Touch, taste, smell, feel and listen, the Old Bus Depot Markets is a truly sensory experience. Let the aroma of freshly brewed coffee greet you as you enter, then as you peruse the stalls enjoy the scents of spice and sweets. The warm smell of freshly baked bread drifts through the air as you explore the gourmet food hall of the Market. Pick up a snack, a bite to eat or a hot meal, eat in or take it home. While you’re eating or shopping, you’ll be entertained by some of Canberra’s most talented musicians and entertainers, all while taking in the lively atmosphere.

There’s also plenty of free parking, easy access, and an annual calendar of fantastic theme events to keep it exciting. Located at 21 Wentworth Avenue, Kingston – make your next Market experience the Old Bus Depot Markets in Canberra.

Whatever the weather, our indoor market provides visitors with an enjoyable experience year round.

See you on Sunday!
