Apollo Bay Market Every Saturday Morning Showcasing art, craft and produce of the Otways

SUNDAY MARKETS are on April (Easter) and June (Queens Birthday) only

Apollo Bay Market  is on most Saturdays throughout the year and provides and excellent opportunity for a pleasant morning with quality handmade wares, conversation, coffee from nearby cafes and the beach all on offer.

Apollo Bay Market stall holders are from the local area, making or growing what they sell. It is very much a community market being held every Saturday morning throughout the year. The market is located on the foreshore in the centre of town. On the site there are interesting sculptures and original seating created by market stallholders.

The Apollo Bay market began in 1978 as a meeting place, an outlet for fresh produce to encourage the development of local crafts. It is unique and has maintained its integrity and high quality ever since.
