When a blue shed door closesanother one opens
For the last three years; Flinders Street Market has opened it's big blue shed doors to the local community, stall holders have enjoyed a platform to test their products and ideas, entrepeneurs have launched successful brands, artists have exposed their skills to the broad community and the public in general has had awesome times at this friendly central space.
Like most things that rise from a small seedling; this market used to be only one stall holder who sold bric a brac, he agreed to share the space and host a market around him, a few weekends later Flinders Street Market had turned a rusty old shed into a community space, a platform for new businesses and the place to hang out on a regular weekend for a bit of shopping and great food.
Flinders Street Market hosted weekends every Saturday and Sunday, regardless of the weather, the market also hosted regular art and craft workshops and more than 15 themed festivals.
After three long years the folks at Flinders Street Market have closed their doors and are currently looking for a new venue to establish themselves, so this is not the end; it is simply a new beginning. The lease at the big blue shed has been taken over by "Market on Flinders" similar name but different folks who manage it, keep your eyes open for the new venue, it could be around the corner from you!
