Woodstock Artisans Market
Time Out says
Trawl through more than 70 stalls in an old-school Italianate mansion
Looking for a picture-perfect afternoon that’ll have you feeling a million miles away from the city? Located in a restored 1871 heritage-listed home, the Woodstock Artisans Market is the place to while away a long, sunlit morning. Rummage for treasure through the makers' stalls and pick your way through vintage fashion, record collections, old postcards, art and bespoke jewels.
A special pre-Mother's Day market is happening on Sunday May 2 from 10am to 3pm, so you can find something special for mum before the big day.
Woodstock was originally built in the late 1860s as a sprawling home for Edwin Thomas Penfold. After his death, it changed hands time and time again, until its recent reinvention as a community space. Now, at the quaint Woodstock Markets, more than 70 stalls with makers of all disciplines come together including leather workers, jewelry makers and ceramicists.
When you're ready to sit back and appraise your new-found knick-knacks, there are picnic benches, food stalls and coffee carts onsite, as well as play areas to keep the children entertained. A good sip of Devonshire tea will wash away any buyers’ remorse.
Woodstock is just a ten-minute walk from Burwood station. If that's not close enough for you to roll into on a Sunday morning, check out our list of the best markets around Sydney.
