A design market at its heart, the Piccadilly Market is perfect for those wanting to support local businesses in one place, giving shoppers the opportunity to talk to the makers and get a feel for bespoke handmade products. There is nothing quite like purchasing something from the person who made it – especially when they’re based within our vibrant local community.

After its ridiculously popular run of night markets over the last year, alongside all its other events, the market has clearly found its sweet spot and is once again taking on a night glow this month. The night edition will see the beloved Geelong Racing Club transform into the kind of shopping wonderland worth getting excited about, tempting you off the couch with an epic program of food, drinks, live entertainment and artisan market stalls.
