Food and words.
The Gilles Street Market has been a highlight of Adelaide's market scene since it began in 2008. It's a hub of locally made crafts, vintage clothing and tasty food. The market usually sprawls over the grounds of Gilles Street Primary School, but for their special Christmas event, the stalls are spreading.

Gilles Street will be closed for the Gilles Street Grand Bazaar. Over 130 stalls will line the streets, giving shoppers an opportunity to find some unique Christmas gifts or do a bit of personal shopping for themselves.

Held on December 3rd, the market will run from 10am-4pm. As well as the regular market stalls there will also be food vendors, entertainment, and workshops. Here's a round-up of some of vendors and workshops that will be spreading a little bit of Christmas cheer.

The Christmas Tree Plantation

If your plastic tree from Kmart is looking a little drab this year, consider a picking up a real Christmas tree instead. The Christmas Tree Plantation will be at the market with a selection of freshly cut pines so you can select your perfect tree.

Maggie and Tonks Christmas Card Illustrating Workshop

Local illustrator Sarah Burley will guide you through designing your own handmade Christmas cards as well as offering her own designs for you to paint and decorate. You'll learn tips for creating your own designs and an art kit to help you practice at home.

On top of the workshop and take home kit, workshop participants get 10% off of Maggie and Tonks products for sale at the market.

You can book your spot online or browse through Sarah's work.

Other workshops include a flower crown making workshop with Milo & Sugar or a chance to make your own dream catcher.

Even if you're not interested in an afternoon workshop there will be plenty of stalls to browse. Gilles Street favourites will be selling vintage clothing, knick-knacks, artworks, plants and more. Whether you're browsing or buying you can also enjoy food stalls, a DJ and other live entertainment.

You can even find the Gilles Street Kids "Made it Market" which will have Adelaide's youngest crafters and entrepreneurs setting up their own stalls and selling their wares.

Make sure you book online in advance for the workshops, but for everything else you just need to turn up on the day. For more information check out the event page or the Gilles Street Market Facebook Page.
