Discover locally made homewares, fashion and food at this northside market

The half-yearly Makers and Shakers Market returns this autumn, showcasing a host of great emerging designers at Coburg Town Hall. Bring your bags and nanna trolleys, this is a great oportunity to stock up on one-of-a-kind goodies.

The April market is a curated event that will feature over 60 stalls selling homewares, food and lifestyle products. Featured on the line-up are the Lisa Frank-eqsue creations of Laura Blythman;  the chunky, funky earrings handcrafted pieces from Erika Harder Jewellery; the quirky, recycled-fabric dolls of Gracie Keal; all natural cosmetics from Skintrade and the rugged, woolly scarves, beanies and blankets of the Woollen Earth (winter is coming afterall). You can see the full list of stallholders on the Makers and Shakers website.

On the food front, you can expect to have all diets catered for with vegan and gluten-free doughnuts, as well as veggo and vegan fare. Treat yourself to artisan caramel popcorn, fancy tea, coffee, very cheesy toasted sandwiches, doughnuts and maybe even a jar of salted caramel...or cookie dough. Fitzroy's own Loafer bakery will even be there selling their fresh hot cross buns. 

In the spirit of the season, there will also be free, all-ages Easter craft workshops running in the foyer from 11am to 2pm. 

Entry is $2 and kids under 12 are free.
