One for your to-do list.

Market lovers of Melbourne, rustle up your change. 

Thread Den is bringing over 60 stalls together to celebrate independent design, ethical production and local businesses. It promises to be the ultimate market extravaganza, with stalls offering an array of fashion, vintage clothing, jewellery, beauty, homewares, art and food. 

Thread Den Market has previously been known as the North Melbourne Market and Melbourne’s Mystery Market, but has returned to its original name to celebrate its 10-year anniversary.

It presents the perfect opportunity to meet the makers behind some established Melbourne brands, and become aware of some lesser-known businesses. 

Over the course of its 10-year stint, Thread Den has toured all over Melbourne but will now reside in the heart of the CBD. Entry is free, to allow more of your money to be spent on the good stuff.

Thread Den November Market
