The Docklands Sunday Market is held from 10am every Sunday morning along the New Quay Promenade. In the winter months, this market will only be held on one Sunday morning between June-August. The dates vary each year. The organisers keep the website up to date.

Find yourself right near Etihad Stadium near the Channel 7 Melbourne newsroom, and simply cross the road into the marina area where a number of high rise apartments occupy this space. You will see a Melbourne blue bike share area, among the first of many restaurants. All of the stalls are to your left, and run across one long line.

The lineage of stalls normally occupies right up to a park area near Harbour Town, yet last Sunday (as at the time of writing this) there weren't too many stalls set up. Then again, the area was quite windy. This was quite disappointing to see a limited number of stalls. Normally this space is alive with locals and families, even within the first hour of the markets opening.

The quality of the goods is exceptional though. Some stylish shoes and clothes are available here, as well as jewellery and kids toys. You can even buy cards here. I also particularly liked the candles you can buy here. Yes, you're able to purchase handmade soy wax candles. You can also buy other beautiful candles that add a little charm to the home décor, as well as fragrances for the car.

Enjoyed browsing the stalls, yet there wasn't anything that I was keen on buying due to having an abundance of such items for the home already. It would have been great to see some more stalls, even in colder weather. All in all, I was only here for about 10 minutes before deciding to move on.

Not to make any comparisons, however, I was fortunate to have visited the Williamstown markets on the very same day, and although the number of stalls were equal; this particular market was more interactive with a band playing. This Docklands market could do with a band playing, or some form of kid-friendly entertainment or otherwise to give it a lot more spark. Then this market will really take off.
