If you're fond of spending your time browsing through stalls, looking at local wares and buying everything from arts and crafts to fashion and homewares, then you've probably made a visit to a BrisStyle market. The Brisbane group hosts several regular events around town, including the Brisbane Twilight Markets in King George Square and The Handmade Markets outside the Queensland Museum. It doesn't usually focus primarily on greenery, though — which is one of the reasons that its returning Plant Market is so special. Here are two others: it's happening in spring, so it's the ideal time for it; and it's happening in Roma Street Parklands.

From 9am–2pm on Saturday, September 23, you'll want to head to Roma Street Parklands's Celebration Lawn to get shopping. Yes, you'll be looking for greenery while surrounded by greenery.

As well as plants, there'll be pots, gardening accessories and floral-themed homewares on offer, with more than 25 stallholders selling their goods. You'll also be able to chat to experts to get some tips about putting your green thumb to best use.

Expect food vendors onsite as well, because we all know that trawling the markets is hungry and thirsty work. Or, you can grab a picnic basket — if you pre-order first — from Roma Street Parklands' The Garden Room Cafe. Either way, live tunes will provide a soundtrack.

Before or after your purchasing and picnicking, take a wander to the site's Spectacle Garden, too, where 10,000-plus flowers are blooming.
