Bright is an outdoor town, so it makes sense that market shopping is one of the big attractions. Why spend the day indoors when you can soak up the sunshine at markets?

Each market is known for having a unique vibe so whether you’re looking for one-off artisan goods, great second-hand clothes or produce straight from the farm, Bright’s weekend markets are a delight for both locals and visitors alike.

Make It, Bake It, Grow It Market

Held the 3rd Saturday of every month from 9am until 1pm. Located in Howitt Park by the Ovens River in Bright.

You’ll find original artworks, wood work, homewares and skincare, as well as gorgeous kids fashion and jewellery by local designers, all guided by our philosophy of “make it, bake it, grow it”.

If you’re a foodie or wine buff, you’ll especially love our market. Bright is situated in the heart of the Great Alpine Valleys, our own little food bowl! We have a wealth of fresh produce – including fresh nuts, fruit and vegetables, freshly baked breads, olive oil & pasta, wine & ales, locally made cheeses, honey & jams, trout and meats.
