One of the best things about the Espy Market has to be its location. Being set against the backdrop of the iconic St Kilda Beach is really quite something and we’re the only market that operates along the iconic palm-lined Esplanade. There are some great photos on our website if you’d like to check them out.
It’s really a pretty unique location we’ve got here at the market. At one end there’s Luna Park and the Palais Theatre and the other St Kilda Sea Baths and Fitzroy Street. Look out to the beach and you can watch people sailing or kitesurfing.
Any Sunday you know you can wander down to St Kilda and browse the market, perhaps stroll down to the beach or along Acland and Fitzroy Streets. It’s a perfectly lovely way to spend a Sunday. You can’t go past it – just try.
St Kilda is one of Melbourne’s treasures. Out of towners usually make a beeline to St Kilda because let’s face it there are a few drawcards – as the locals are well aware. We’ve got sandy beaches close to the city, easy access to public transport, some of Melbourne’s best restaurants, bars and live venues. And of course a market every Sunday – what more could you want!
As always our stallholders will be ready to go at 10am on Sunday – see you there. Need directions?
