A retired business owner, my passions are cooking, photography and eating. I use all three of these when I write for recipeyum.com.au which is on HubGarden
These markets will have a fabulous range of goods
Markets are all coming back for this year and are a wonderful place to spend a morning or a whole day at now that it is not so hot. You can spend time wandering around just looking at all the new and exciting items that are available to buy. I find if I like something I buy it even if I do not need it, as I often keep things as presents! Hence I have a few drawers full of items that are fascinating and eventually will be given away as presents.
The Mermaid Design and Makers market is heading to Balwyn North bringing you the Melbourne Edition event.
This will be held on Sunday, 7th April 2019 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm at Boroondara Sports Complex, 271C Belmore Road, Balwyn North.
This will be an indoor market like no other! There will be an emphasis on quality and unique local brands which are sure to tempt your senses at every turn! There will be so much to find - what will you find here? Will it be fashion, accessories, bags and jewellery, baby, children, maternity, nursery items or micro-fashion? There will also be plants, homewares, candles and design art, illustration and graphics lifestyle, pets, wellness, health and beauty, handmade foods, jams, sauces and pickles.
There will be live music with the amazing Kylie Chirunga and if it is a hot day, the venue is air conditioned for your comfort.
The emphasis will be largely on ethical, sustainable products featuring vegan and gluten-free options. They also will aim to be free of plastic and therefore encourage you to bring your own reusable shopping bags.
There will be a cafe where you can drink good coffee or tea and eat healthy food options. Entry is free and there is also free parking if you come by car.
Some of the vendors at these markets include the following:
Dot and Leopard will have little girls' clothes and they aim that girls clothes should be special every day. Their range is not just gorgeous but also affordable.
