Shop for locally made gifts and art at this colourful design market

This boutique market curated by the Australian Design Centre is making its first 2019 appearance as part of Sydney Design Festival. The carefully selected line-up of more than 20 stallholders will take over Palmer Street in Darlinghurst offering handmade jewellery, textiles, ceramics and homewares.

You’ll find jewellery crafted by First Nations women at the Gillawarra Arts stall, Studio A will showcase their works by artists with disability, you can cover all your cushions and lounge chairs with hand-printed textiles from the Print Society, and Hunter Candles will make your living room smell heavenly with their soy wax productions that are hand-poured in Newtown.

Mingle with the makers and share creative inspiration while you peruse the stalls or check out the current exhibition at the Design Centre, which will also be open throughout the day. If all the artistic ponderings have left you feeling peckish, you can find caffeine and carb sustenance from Crepe & Coffee Co. who are setting up a food stall inside the centre.
