A little bit crafty

The Sprout Community Market is on this Thursday from 2 - 7pm and is held on the first Thursday of every month (except Winter & January) in Thornbury.  The market is a Mind Australia horticulture and enterprise initiative with a sustainable and creative focus designed to promote mental and physical well being.

The market has a variety of stalls (including organically grown produce, dried herbs and plants; food & drink; kids activities; local crafts, arts and designs) as well as music, and often workshops and demonstrations.  Produce has been produced on site as well as from stall holders from the wider, local community (within 100 miles).

I've also discovered another gorgeous seasonal market in the north called Northside Makers - a not-for-profit craft collective for crafts people, hobbyists and micro-business in Melbourne's northern suburbs.
