The Makers and Shakers Market
Time Out says
The Makers and Shakers are bringing more local craft and colour to Sydney this spring
Inside the Marrickville Town Hall this October you’ll find local makers who value the where, who and how of their products, keeping quality high and sourcing local. Whether you’re looking to pick up some home-grown treasures or just after a gourmet snack, one of the 60 stalls is sure to satisfy.
Stallholders for the October edition include Inner West florists Sweet Pea and Honey Bee who bring native blooms to the fore, Byron Bay’s Bilboa, who craft elegant fashion by hand, experts in accessories and illustrations Hello Miss May, and Nanna Woo Handmade who create striking kitchenware from eco resin speckled with wildflowers.
On the snack front, you’ll find sweets by Sydney baked goods specialists like Broomfields, Flour and Stone and Nútie Donuts, simple but fabulous cheese toasties by Mister Toast and coffee from the Doctor.
Doors open from 9am-3pm, and punters donating a $2 coin can wander among a jungle of plantlife, ceramics and crafty clothes, coffee in hand, while they meet local makers and pick out a prize or two. Many of the stalls will take your magic plastic cards for payment, but it wouldn’t hurt to arrive with some cash for the odd shop that doesn’t have EFTPOS facilities.
