Art in Singapore has evolved from its snobbish and elite image to becoming more accessible and celebrated within the local community. If you’re looking to score some art pieces or unique craft work, here are our picks of the best art markets in Singapore.

Maker’s Parade by Fleawhere

Aptly named the Maker’s Parade, each edition of the event features a variety of craft and design products by local brands and start-ups. Held at different times throughout the year, this is the best place to source for unique jewellery, fashion and artisanal food products as well.

Admission: Free

Various Locations

The Local People

Pop-ups by The Local People take on a different approach – the team seeks to “repurpose disused places” like the old Tanjong Pagar Railway Station, while providing a platform for the local arts, music and film community to convene and share their craft with the public. Held at various times throughout the year, The Local People has amassed a huge following for creative collaborations that inject a unique, yet casual atmosphere to each edition.

Admission: Free

Affordable Art Fair

Held at the F1 Pit Building, the Affordable Art Fair happens once a year, bringing together contemporary artists from the region and beyond. The mission? As its name simply puts it, the art fair is meant to make art accessible, affordable and inculcate the habit of buying and collecting unique art pieces without breaking the bank.
