Dandy Makers is Melbourne’s newest handmade craft and artisan foods market. It is an initiative of Southern Migrant & Refugee Centre – making stronger communities, through micro business mentoring and empowerment.

Dandy Makers first opened its doors on October 14th, 2018 and operates on the 2nd Sunday of every month on the grounds of our fabulous supporter, Dandenong Market.

During our first 12 months SMRC held 10 markets for 55 stallholders with a further 40 budding entrepreneurs attending our training.
