FAQ for Buyers

Here are a few of the common questions shoppers ask us before attending a Baby and Kids Market Melbourne:

What items will be on sale at the market?

Each market aims to provide shoppers with a wide range of quality preloved goods as well as unique and/or handmade goods and services. The market consists of stallholders that are mums and dads (and grandparents) who are selling their preloved or handcrafted goods. Although we will most likely have your required item for sale, we cannot guarantee it, as we don’t know exactly what stallholders will bring on the day. We suggest you come early to have the opportunity to view the widest selection.

How can I be kept up to date with the upcoming Baby and Kids Market Melbourne?

There are a few ways to find out about an upcoming market near you:

  1. Check out the Market dates on our website.
  2. Follow us on Facebook and join the events you are interested in and you will receive notifications closer to the market date.
  3. Sign up for our newsletter.

Is there an entry fee?

As the market is held within a Children’s Paycentre, children are charged $7 to enter and play, while adults are free.  However, if an adult is unaccompanied by a child a nominal fee of $2 per adult to enter the market. This will also put you automatically in the draw for some fabulous door prizes!! The entry fee assists with the running costs of the event. Without an entry fee the market would not be able to operate.

Is there food available at the venue?

The venue will have yummy food and drinks for sale. We are not responsible for these.

Are there only pre-loved goods?

We have mostly pre-loved stalls, but there are also business and handmade stalls at the Baby and Kids Market Melbourne. They might have some great market specials available on the day!

Can I purchase goods with a credit/debit card?

All Baby and Kids Markets are cash only so make sure you bring enough, however, some of the business stalls may have a credit card facility at their stall.

Is there an ATM at the market?

Yes. Fortunately most Market venues have an ATM at the venue. We will advise you if there is not one nearby.

What if it rains, will the market be cancelled?

All Baby and Kids Market Melbourne are held indoors so the event will always go ahead regardless of the weather.
