Celebrate Sydney’s creative talent at this one-day maker’s market
Sydney has no shortage of markets, which means the bar has been set high when it comes to purveyors of local, handmade and artisanal goods. Luckily, market snobs are in for a welcome treat, with the upcoming Etsy Community Market set to showcase some of the finest wares by Sydney’s best creatives.
On Saturday July 29, over 70 local makers, artisans and designers from Etsy.com, the online marketplace for handmade and vintage goods, will come together to show off their talents at the Brewery Yard at Central Park.
The once-yearly event is the brainchild of Sydney Made, a creative organisation consisting of over 1,400 Sydney-based Etsy buyers and sellers. Director Bea Bellingham is passionate about local talent, and urges Sydneysiders to explore and celebrate what the city has to offer. “These markets are a chance to discover the extraordinary makers that can be found in your backyard,” says Bellingham. “Sydney is an incredibly creative city, and the makers attending represent just a snapshot of talent and the sellers we’ve come to love.”
Shoppers will be able to browse products ranging from sustainable homewares to beauty brands, jewellery and fashion, plus artworks and pet accessories. A significant drawcard to the event will be the chance to directly connect with the crafters and pick their brains before purchasing their creations. Plus, you can expect buying to be a breeze, with card payment accepted by all stallholders on the day.
