Forget decking the halls with boughs of holly — this November and December, Fortitude Valley's Bakery, Winn and California lanes are decking out their stretches of pavement with other kinds of festive cheer. At A Very Laneway Christmas, a whole heap of markets — plus plenty of permanent shops to browse through — are on the bill.
Located around the stretch of Ann Street near the Brunswick Street Mall, there's no shortage of spots luring people into both locales each and every day, whether you're keen for a bite at Ben's Burgers, a gig at The Zoo, or rifling through the shelves at Tym's Guitars or Phase 4. 'Tis the season to amp things up, however. And that's just what'll be happening between November 24 and December 15
Different speciality markets will be happening across A Very Laneway Christmas' run, so prepare your wallet for a few suitably seasonal shopping trips — and for a soundtrack of tunes to go with them. It all kicks off with plants and homewares on Saturday, November 24, with more to come. As always, buying yourself an Xmas gift is completely acceptable.
