Shop for leafy greenery at this one-day plant fest at Brisbane's massive permanent market.
September 15, 2022
Any weekend is a good weekend to shop for plants at the Brisbane Markets, the old faithful of the Brissie market scene. That said, Saturday, October 8 will be better than ever thanks to a returning event: Plantapalooza.
It's the third time that the Rocklea spot has held a plant festival and, running from 6am–2pm, that's something to get excited about. You'll still find the venue's regular 150-stall-plus market array, but it'll be joined by thousands of extra indoor and outdoor plants, as well as plenty of flowers and succulents — and demonstrations on everything from composting and terrariums to growing herbs and arranging flowers to help you put your green thumb to work.
Spring is well and truly in swing, so if you've been putting off getting into the garden, here's your motivation.
Or, if you'd like to brighten up your house with a potted piece of nature, here's your chance as well. Remember: there's absolutely nothing wrong with giving a name to your favourite houseplant.
Entry costs $2, or $6 with premium parking.
