The People's Market is returning to Collingwood for one weekend only - on 10 and 11 August!

For those who have a great sense of the unusual, the quirky, sometimes the downright absurd, you will love everything about The People's Market.

Firstly, the venue for The People's Market is held at a new secret warehouse, with over twenty vendors in Collingwood for the weekend. There will be a focus on handmade goodness, local designers, craft, food and plenty of entertainment for kids and adults.

The People's Market is brought to you by Urban Inc's Oxley residential project.

As mentioned, this market will be held in a new, secret warehouse behind the new Oxley Display Suite; this is actually only a few metres away from its original location on Stanley Street.

For the coffee lovers amongst us, it will be the chance to drink rare and unusual sample brews - courtesy of Proud Mary's Pop-Up Brew Bar, while listening to groovy tunes pumping out around the market.

For the cyclists, they have been remembered in a wonderful way at this market - where they can receive a free bike touch up by the experienced mechanics from Tokyobike.

If you would prefer to wander around a bit further afield, you can even rent a bicycle for free to explore the neighbourhood

Chingon and The Dude Food Van food trucks will be parked out front for the hungry market visitors,

Get outside in this chilly weather - relax, it is all undercover, so it will be fine no matter of what the weather, enjoy a great community experience and find something quirky at The People's Market.
