The best finds are at suburban markets and nothing says suburban market quite like a public school ground.
After a six-month hiatus, Glebe Markets are back this Saturday, September 26, from 10am to 4pm in the Glebe Public School grounds. And we couldn’t be more thrilled with the timing because just as the warmer weather really kicks into gear, we’re finding out that we’re in need of some new additions to our summer wardrobe.

Although Glebe Markets caters to a range of marketgoers—they have fresh produce and food available as well as homewares, beauty. craft and designer products—, there real drawcard is the massive array of second-hand and vintage clothes on hand. Fast fashion is kicked to the curb as marketgoers trawl the rows and rows of eclectic garments, colourful shirts, and fabulous accessories. From vintage European finds at Stitch Vintage and Shagwell Vintage to Muns Vintage where you will find a bunch of recycled fabrics given a new life, there’s definitely a garment or two that you’re going to want to take home with you.
But if clothing isn’t your thing, then browse your way through records, books, old-school cool cameras, scented candles and maybe even some bags so that you can take everything home with you. Once you’ve worked up an appetite from your shopping, grab a bite to eat and sit on the lawn where live entertainment will be performed every week from 12pm to 3pm.
Sydney’s Glebe Markets are touted as being a bit alternative and a tad chaotic. Fear not, though, because the team behind the markets have implemented wider aisles, crowd monitoring, contactless food ordering, and extra cleaning services to help put your mind at ease.
To know where you want to go and avoid mindlessly lapping the school grounds, we highly recommend you using the Glebe Markets stall map.
