Plant Empire Christmas Market
'Tis the season to shop for greenery, pots, ceramics, crafts and more.
Yeerongpilly's Plant Empire sells greenery every day of the week, helping folks with green thumbs — and those who wish they had them, too — fill their homes with leafy babies. But on Sunday, December 5, it's doing something more than that. You can still browse the store's shelves for plants, of course; however you can also head round back to check out the pop-up Christmas market.
As well as plants, you'll be able to peruse a range of pots. If you're going to buy one of your loved ones some greenery, you'll want something to put it in, obviously. Also on offer: ceramics, jewellery and other handmade crafts. And if you happen to arrive hungry — Sunday mornings can do that to even the most satisfied stomach — there'll be food and coffee available as well, all while you listen to live tunes.
Just drop by the Station Road spot between 9am–1pm, when the morning-long market and its 60-plus stalls will be in full swing. The usual advice applies here, as it does to all plant markets: yes, more greenery is always a good thing.
