The bi-annual markets will be be held once again this spring at Melbourne's own Royal Exhibition Building, next to the Melbourne Museum in Carlton Gardens. There are ample public transport options, which are encouraged due to limited parking space. The location can also be reached via bike lanes and there is a bicycle rack just outside the Melbourne Museum.
For an evening and a day, the vibrant market will be showcasing selected talents from the Australian independent art and design scene. From homewares to jewellery passing through everything that is art for art's sake.
Have a peek at the impressive round-up of stallholders scheduled for this edition, including a number of new and debut artists and designers.
Part of the signature style of the markets is to have a festival feel, and you can't have a festival without music. Here's a bit of background info on some of the musicians scheduled for this edition:
Great Earthquake - Meet Noah Symons, renaissance man, one-man-band, barista. As Great Earthquake he released his first full-length album Drawings in May 2012 and is currently working on its follow up.
Sui Zhen - Becky Sui Zhen is a musician and creative producer from Sydney. You can get a taste of her unique style on SoundCloud or take a dive into her creative world on Vimeo.
The Weeping Willows - Andy Wrigglesworth and Laura Coates are a couple of self-proclaimed "old souls" from bluegrass tradition. See what happens when love and musical talent come together in the music videos found on their website.
The line up also includes Hello Satellites and Manny Fox, and opening and closing both market days will be a DJ set by Niko Maersk and Jack May.
Please note that this edition has an entry fee of $2. As they explain on the website, though they have been offering free entry for five years, the growth of the markets has made it necessary to ask for a minimal entry fee starting from this edition. Children under 12 still have free entry.
