Cowrie Market goes online! And now has its own website... www.torquaycowriemarket.com Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the launch of our physical market has sadly been delayed until 2021. So we've created Cowrie Market Online to showcase our fabulous stallholders right here! You will find links to their online shops, websites and social media so you can continue supporting them during these difficult times.
The Cowrie Market has come a long way from humble beginnings, proudly supporting many budding artists over the years. Nestled amongst the iconic trees overlooking Zeally Bay on Torquay's stunning foreshore, the Cowrie Market has become one of the biggest art and craft markets in the area, drawing a regular large crowd rain, hail or shine!
Held on the third Sunday of the month, from September through to April each year, visitors enjoy the friendly, relaxed, coastal vibe. The Cowrie Market specialises in quality local art, craft, jewellery, fashion, vintage goods, plants, gifts and produce. All items for sale are environmentally friendly, handmade, homegrown or designed by the stallholder. There's also a fabulous kids caravan offering creative activities, an extensive range of exceptionally yummy food and two stages featuring local music and entertainment. You might even encounter a special pop up activity or performance!
Torquay Cowrie market is a plastic bag free event.
