An atmospheric artisan market in the north with beer
On Saturday 22nd June, a new market comes to town. Northern Regards Artist Market at Northcote Social Club, is a market with a very big difference, one that sells only handmade sustainable wares.

So what actually constitutes as a 'sustainable' product? The team behind Northern Regards say:

"Taking an item destined for landfill and reinventing it, for example, taking linens from your mum's cupboard or op shop and creating new handmade clothes with them. Rescuing that old crockery and creating something useful and beautiful.

Creating handmade items with natural product, for example, knitting beanies with Australian grown wool and using soy to make candles.

Using post consumer/recycled products in your creations, for example, using recycled paper to make cards or recycled silver and copper in jewellery construction."

Handmade markets can be found all over Melbourne, however, this is the very first one to delve into the growing 'eco' genre.

The market is run in partnership with Thornbury Womens Neighbourhood House and Northcote Social Club to bring a quality, highly curated market featuring sustainable handmade wares to one of Melbourne's thriving high streets.
