Lollipop Markets was first created in 2010 and has been evolving ever since. For the first 10 years Lollipop Markets was well know as a must see event for parents & parents to be. We are still holding our big events throughout the year & have also expanded into Pop Up shops in Westfield & City Centres. Across everything we do our main focus is supporting small, local businesses & bringing them together in one space - as a collective.
Our markets are now known as Adelaide’s Biggest Parenting & Baby Fair with a large range of stall holders showcasing the best in handmade, boutique & unique items for your bump, baby & kids! If you are a parent or parent to be keep a lookout for our next event - you can shop up a storm all while supporting local!
We are so excited to also bring you our Pop Up stores across Adelaide and Melbourne Westfield centres - Marion has two pop ups including an exclusively baby & kids store and you’ll find some extra goodies at our Westlakes & TTP Pop Ups.
In Melbourne we are located at Fountain Gate in two locations and have a range of baby, gift, homewares and more. All vendors trade in the shared space as a collective to offer you their products 7 days a week! Shopping with us means you’ll get to meet the creative minds behind the beautiful brands.
We love bringing the community together and collaborating with these businesses to work as one big team. We pride ourselves on the high quality products and friendly faces at our store fronts.
All About Us
Now a little about us..
We began our adventure with Lollipop Markets as customers when we were both pregnant with our first babies - Zac & Siarna. We loved the concept of Lollipop Markets being the one stop shop for all things baby! We decided to purchase the business shortly after it went on the market in 2018 and instantly fell in love. Together we have worked hard to bring our customers the event they know & love while growing the business into what it is today.
When the dreaded COVID19 hit, it put all markets to a halt, which brought not only our business but a lot of our stall holders to a screaming halt. We hosted a few online markets & then opened our first POP UP SHOP at Westfield Marion! This was meant to be a temporary location for 2 months, but 4 years later is still blooming.
November of 2021 our second Pop Up Shop opened at Westlakes, and since then we have opened 6 NEW Locations including interstate, making it 8 in total!
We are proud to say we expanded from South Australia to Melbourne!
We have been best friends since high school and between the two of us, have 7 children between us. Together we want to bring our beautiful like minded local businesses together to provide consumers with gorgeous products for both mumma, bubba & your home!
Thank you for coming on this journey with us - we hope to see you at our next event or one of our Pop Ups soon!
Love Bianca & Mel xx
