New to Canberra, I love exploring this city and the secrets that it holds with my family.
The perfect way to enjoy the end of the working week
Last Summer, the inner city suburb of Barton hosted its first outdoor Night Markets, attracting thousands of excited locals in December and then again in February this year. Held on a Friday night, it is the perfect opportunity to finish work and then head over to the markets for some shopping, something to eat at the food stalls, listen to some live entertainment and catch up with friends.
Located in the Realm Park, part of the 5 Star Hotel Realm precinct in Barton, the food stalls and bar are run by the local restaurants as well as over 30 market stalls selling fashion, homewares, lifestyle products and art from local and interstate creators.
Last year the organisers were amazed by the response, with many of their stallholders selling out due to the overwhelming popularity of the markets. They will return this year with more stalls and more products for this popular outdoor event.
If you enjoy yourself, come back again Friday 4 December 2015 to do it all again at the next Night Market.
Check their Facebook prior to the markets for more updated information on the stalls attending.
Starting at 4pm, it is the perfect opportunity relax and take your time in browsing before dinner. So bring your appetite, meet some friends, and enjoy the sights, smells and sounds of Barton's Night Market.
