Popping up in a garden near you
Popping up again this spring and summer for another season is the always-popular Wattle Street Market located in the heart of the eastern suburbs in Fullarton. The first Wattle Street Market for this season will be on Saturday 17th October from 9am to 4pm, with four further markets scheduled on 14th November, 12th December, 13th February and the 19th March.
The Wattle Street Market is a pop up garden market that transforms the garden of a suburban streeted Fullarton residence in to a market extravaganza. Held within the front garden of a local arts and craft loving local, the market utilises the area without feeling too crowded, and attracts a steady flow of careful and considered market attendees.
This boutique market brings together a wide ranging mix of stalls from designer handmade kids and adult clothing and accessories, shoes, bags, cushions, organic soy candles, soaps, luxury towels and linen, homewares, hand crafted cards and stationery and delicious food including cakes, masterstock packs, organic coffee and preserves and much more.
And as a special treat for kids, there is an area set aside for various individual and small group children's activities and each market supports a local and related charity through gold coin donations for face painting.
Now in its third full season, the Wattle Street Market has gained a strong following from people both young and old, which is little wonder given the unusual front garden concept and the casual and relaxed atmosphere from both the stallholders and the visitors.
Among the stallholders for the coming season are Potted Thoughts, Frock Me Out, Miss Vintage, Shanghai Lil and The Scarlet Fez, Luna and Luxe Vintage Soy Candles, Vintage Fox, Collecte, Bonheur Homewares and Mintcloud. In addition, Coffee Cow, Food Man Chew, Sal's Masterstock, Loca Pops, Poppies of the Glen and Rebecca's Cakes keep the coffee and food coming all day so that energy levels remain high.
There's something quite special about waltzing in to somebody else's suburban garden with the Wattle Street Market being the quaint address for market goers on a Saturday. With its uniqueness, simplicity, shady trees, shading umbrellas and pleasant pathways, it is the perfect way to kickstart a Saturday, or to have a relaxing browse around lunch time.
