Heart Of Thornbury

HOT hosts the much-loved Makers Market four times a year at the Bridge Darebin Community Hall in Thornbury.
These markets celebrate the work of crafters, creatives and artists and provide visitors with the opportunity to meet the handmakers in person and get a true understanding of their special talents.

The HOT Shop is also open 24/7 so you can find your favourite stallholders all year-round!
Support small business from the comfort of your couch and buy direct from the maker.
