Northside Makers Market: Your summer of crafty fun!

Church night 1A phonecall to our venue has confirmed our market dates for this summer. We admit it's a fairly broad definition of 'summer' - with four markets in October, November, February and March we're hoping to hit some nice days while avoiding January scorchers.

While December sounds like the ideal month for a market, the Northside committee decided against a pre-Christmas market as many small business crafters already have their market stalls booked. Besides, we committee members expect we'll have enough on our plates with crafting presents and going to Christmas parties without running a market as well. We may look invincible, but there's only so much working mothers can take on and maintain their sanity!

In planning our ideal market, we all agreed to avoid the colder months that keep potential shoppers indoors. Why be on a market stall in a chilly venue when you'd rather be rugged up in front of the heater reading Harry Potter like everyone else? So, a summer market calendar it shall be.

Northside Makers Markets are at a venue with both indoor and outdoor spaces, nice spots to sit down with a cuppa and cupcake, room to park prams, and smack in the middle of a major shopping strip. We anticipate many happy and prosperous market days ahead.


  1. I like your style, girls - this is a great venue. I hope I can fit in with the dates you choose as I'm really looking forward to being part of your collective.

  2. This sounds like such a great idea, my only question is "where" is your venue? I can't find a hint of it anywhere? Oh and I'm north and a bit east, does that count?

  3. Sounds very exciting, I would be very interested in being part of your market! Please keep us posted!

  4. It's all happening. Looking forward to reading the fine detail like dates, etc.
