Formerly known as the Peel Street Cottage Craft Fairs, Peel Street Markets are held monthly on the 3rd Sunday of each month from 8am till 1pm. The Markets began in August 1996 when the First Stage of the Peel Street Beautification was opened by the then Tamworth City Council.
The Calala Rotary Club of Tamworth took over the running of the markets from the Tamworth Business Chamber with the objective of distributing all profits from the coordination of the markets to local community organizations.
From small beginnings these markets have grown considerably in size, now hosting over 60 stalls, providing an outlet for the market industries such as arts, crafts, hobbies and handmade, homegrown products. The number of stallholders continues to grow.
Our stallholders are many and varied and offer:
- candles, soaps, lavender products
- cakes, biscuits, slices, bread, chocolates
- jams, pickles, preserves, honey
- jewellery, crystals, paintings
- folk art, pottery, leather work
- babywear, kids' toys
- seedlings, plants, garden ornaments
- hats, clothing
- hand-made cards,
- home decor, ornaments
- hand-made dog treats, clothing
- handspun yarn
- wood work, wood turning
- metal work
So is this the best family market experience in the region? Why not judge for yourself?
Look forward to a relaxing Sunday morning and come to the Peel Street Market with its great mix of stalls!
Our market experience will provide you with a chance to browse; to taste; to chat; to eat and to enjoy.
With further developments underway we are keen to ensure that the market is a real asset to our community and we would love to hear from new exhibitors and farmers looking for a regular spot to supply some of our community’s finest produce.
We would also love to hear suggestions from the community.
For more information on how to exhibit at the market or to just drop us a suggestion or comment please contact our Markets Co-ordinator at Calala Rotary:

Stallholder Reservation Criteria
Each person wishing to become a stallholder must reserve a site with the Market Coordinator.

They will only be required to contact the Market Coordinator if they’re not attending.
Failure to advise non-attendance for 2 consecutive months results in loss of site. A valid reason for nonattendance would be taken into consideration.
The Calala Rotary Club has the right to ask any stallholder who does not comply with directions or who use the market for purposes other than those intended, to cease trading at the Peel Street Market immediately.
