The Young Makers’ Market is a youth artist market program that gives young people a platform to grow their small business ideas in a safe and supported environment! The market is programmed to be accessible, cost effective and offer access to necessary market resources like tables, chairs, and marquees.



Be a Stall Holder!

Young people aged 10-25 can come and sell their homemade food,  horticulture, cosmetics, art, crafts and more at our Young Makers Market Events!

The Young Makers’ Market program offers a supportive environment to help young people start their small business’ with access to additional market resources and staff.

The only rule is that you have to have created or altered the product yourself and live, study, work or recreate in Mount Alexander Shire.

Space hire is free and tables and marquees are available for hire $5 each.

Events are held x4 times per year at the Western Reserve Oval alongside our friends and partners, the Castlemaine Artist Market (CAM).

Anyone interested in having a stall, or if you have any enquirers, please contact Jodie Hearn, Youth Activities Officer, on 5471 1700 or email
