Brisbane Fair Trade Christmas Market
Pick up ethically-created, handcrafted items from around the world.
For two days, one particular patch of Brisbane has all of your Christmas needs covered, including one that you mightn't have given as much thought to as you'd like. If you're eager to give your loved ones gifts that were created by hand, and ethically, then that's what the Brisbane Fair Trade Christmas Market is all about.
It's also a chance to pick up homewares, clothing and more from other cultures, with pieces made by artisan communities in Africa, Asia, South America and other areas around the globe. No, your dad isn't getting boring old socks. And no, you're not just buying your mum flowers.
The market runs from 8am–6pm on Saturday, November 24 and from 8am–3pm on Sunday, November 25 at the Queensland Sport and Athletics Centre. An added bonus: you'll be perusing for presents in air-conditioning. Bring some cash, though, as there's no ATM on site — although many stallholders will have EFTPOS.
