Shop independent makers and designers at the three-day markets

The Big Design Market sees more than 230 designers and makers selling their handmade and locally produced wares at a three-day market in Sydney. This year’s stallholders include Beep Bicycle Bells, Halcyon Nights children’s bedding and apparel, Melbourne-based illustrator Min Pin, Japanese knives and pottery from Simply Native Japan, handpainted soccer balls from Park Social Soccer Co and print textiles from Variety Hour.

In addition to the shopping, there is a food court with snacks from Mary’s burgers and Messina gelato, as well as booze from Archie Rose, Bodega 1904 Wine Store, and loose leaf tea from the Rabbit Hole Organic Tea Bar.

There’s also a range of workshops, such as Kester Black and Trophy Wife teaching people how to create art on their nails and an indoor green-thumb workshop with the Plant Society.

The Big Design Market’s first year in Sydney attracted 24,000 visitors for the new and independent design brands from textiles to fashion, innovative technology and kids’ products.
