Wolli Creek's makers, growers and designers market.
One of inner city Sydney's favourite regular markets is bringing the magic to the south with a new market in Wolli Creek. Located at Discovery Point and aptly named Discovery Markets, it's a fiesta of independently grown, baked, designed and made goodness — from local produce and tasty treats to fashion pieces and homewares.
The brains behind this event are the same as those behind Chippendale's Brewery Yard Markets, Jacob Collier and Rupert Partridge. "Every stallholder has a unique story to tell," says Jacob and Rupert. "At Discovery Markets we want this to be recognised, by giving our visitors the opportunity to learn more about what they're buying and who they're buying it from."
You can expect more than 40 stalls. Get set for sweet deliciousness from Donut Papi, super-fresh juices from Steve's Easy Squeeze, spicy feasts from Paella Del Mar, American burgers from East Coast Slider Shack and cracking caffeine hits from Black Market Roasters. Meanwhile, if it's gifts you're looking for, browse through Waja Creations' recycled flowerpots laden with cactii, hand-poured candles from Kandel, and designer dogwear from Haus of Harley.
The Discovery Markets are held on the first and third Saturdays of every month from 9am till 3pm. Feel free to drive and load up your car with your loot — there's plenty of parking.
UPDATE APRIL 20, 2017: For Earth Day, the Discovery Markets is holding a special Earth-inspired market on Saturday, April 22. Work-Shop will be doing a session on how to create a sustainable backyard garden (at 10am and again at 1pm), the Arncliffe Men's Shed will set up their fix-it van to fix any broke household items, and OzHarvest will be there to collect any food you wish to donate.
