I love all things market!
So much so I organise a plus size fashion market, A Plus Market! Check out the website for all dates and info. www.aplusmarkets.com
Beer and sustainability
Other than markets another love of mine is live music; that said I am very familiar with many of the band rooms around town. I love the fact that by night they rock on and that by day now the space is used economically as many are opening up as markets.
Now, I know what you are thinking…'Not another market in Melbourne?' And the answer is Yes, another market in Melbourne, yet the Northern Regards Artisan Market really sets itself apart as its focus is on sustainability. Attracting artisans that have a strong sustainable, upcycled and recycled feel to their work, the Northern Regards Artisan Market is on the first Saturday of EVERY month.
The band room at the Northcote Social Club is filled with handmade sustainable wares. You'll find homewares, jewellery, candles, clothing and more, all made from recycling, upcycling and sustainable methods.
Another thing that sets this market above many others is the organisation. Northern Regards Artisan Markets is a partnership with the Thornbury Women's Neighbourhood House – TWNH. The organisers are focussed not only on sustainability but also community.
And if you're not convinced yet, there is also BEER. You can have a bevy (and some tasty lunch) all whilst shopping in a guilt-free, sustainable and community supportive way.
