Sutherland Lane ignites with Christmas markets & music
Chippendale is an inner-city suburb of Sydney and is known for several heritage-listed sites including the Regent Street Railway Station and the John Storey Memorial Dispensary, which was built in 1926. The area was originally occupied by the Gadigal people of the Dharung Nation.
Something for Jess Café, which is situated at 27 Abercrombie Street in Chippendale has organised Inaugural Chippendale Christmas Markets. The team at Something for Jess Café wanted to share their passion of the local design and arts and crafts in Chippendale, as well as thank the wider inner West community for their incredible support the Café has received this year.
