It has been a couple of years since Brisbane's Metre Market transformed into The Market Folk, and since the latter started holding regular markets at Coorparoo Square, too. It still knows how to celebrate Christmas, though — or to help you get ready for the most festive day of the year, to be specific.
Head along from 9am–1pm on Sunday, December 20 to get your last-minute shopping done, and even find yourself a few nifty gifts. More than 40 stalls will be showcasing everything from fashion and food to arts, homewares and design items. There'll also be skincare, accessories and eco products as well. Yes, even if you're looking for a present for a particularly hard-to-buy-for friend, you're likely to find something.
This is a Christmas market, so a few seasonal activities are also on the bill. That includes carolling, naturally, plus a Christmas selfie wall and a bauble decorating workshop for kids.
