Well it's probably not quite the right day to be talking about markets but there are a couple on this weekend. Markit@FedSquare is on this Sunday from 10 am - 5 pm and will feature the work of some of my favourite designers. This is a bi-annual curated design market focusing on illustrative and decorative design products where you have the opportunity to meet the designers as well as buy their products.
The Monty Farmers Market is also on tomorrow from 9 am - 1 pm at Montmorency Primary School, 60A Rattray Road Montmorency. Entry is by gold coin donation and there'll be live music from the Minor Detail. They are looking for more support and stall holders so if you live nearby, please go and visit.
There is also talk of a new Banyule Farmers Market at Sills Bend or Heidelberg football oval which a little birdie (thanks Catherine!) told me about. Click on the link if you are interested in organising or supporting this market.
Finally, I've talked about art a lot this week and Art Melbourne opened last night and runs all weekend. There are also free 40 minute art workshops for the kids in The Childrens Studio if you have any budding artists in the family.
