It's all on at Stadium Southland this weekend with the Southern Crafters Market's July exhibition.

Southern Crafters Club president Wayne McEwan said the market would have balloon animals to high-quality furniture for sale, so there was sure to be something for everyone.

The group was started by Southlanders 17 years ago and is now one of the biggest markets in the country, he said.

"Now craftspeople from all over the country want to come along."

One hundred and eighty stalls will dot the velodrome, 20 of them food stalls.

"We had people last year doing laps to wear it off so they could go back and have something else," he said.

There are several new stalls this year, including someone who makes "awesome" pieces out of old oak barrels, and shabby chic jewellers Crimson Rose Cottage.

Entry to the market is free.

"When they got together, that was one of the main things, that it would be free entry."

The Southern Crafters Market runs from 10am until 5pm tomorrow and 10am until 4pm on Sunday.

Stadium Southland is also hosting its open day on Sunday from 10am to 3pm.
