This three-day market will satisfy all your aesthetic desires
Start saving your pennies now because the Big Design Market is back for another year. Across three days this festive season, you can check out more than 350 local, national and international designers spruiking everything from homewares, fashion and cosmetics to tech accessories, furniture and kids products. And since it’s happening right before Christmas it’s a great chance to pick up some presents to make your Christmas morning extra merry.
The 2018 stallholder line-up features the likes of jewellery designer Ada Hodgson, talented ceramicist James Lemon, indigenous social enterprise Bush Medijina, independent stationers Milligram and so much more. Pick up eco-friendly food wraps from Honeybee Wrap, lunchboxes from Beetbox, ceramic travel cups from Bridget Bodenham, cute bikes from Lekker, produce seeds from Little Veggie Patch Co. and more.
The natural enemy of shopping sprees is hunger but luckily the Big Design Market boasts a hunger-busting line-up of food and drink options. Foodie stalwarts of the market include Gelato Messina, St Ali, Earl Canteen, Five and Dime Bagels and All Day Donuts. They're joined by the fresh faces of Q le Baker by Quentin Berthonneau who will be bringing some authentic French pastries. Plus the market has your weekend tipple sorted thanks to the market’s Balcony Bar who are pouring drinks from Moo Brew, Starward Whisky, The Everleigh, Merricks General Wine Store and Archie Rose Distilling Co.
Limited edition designer showbags are back for 2018 as well, with this year's bags containing kids books from Berbay Books, nail polish from Kester Black, earrings from Erika Harder Jewellery, enamel pins from Danica Studio, body products from Leif and heaps more from other market faves. Kids aren’t left out either with a cool 'city park' oasis for both kids and families to enjoy during the day.
Entry is $2 and ATM facilities are available within the market.
