For a beer with a killer riverside inner-city view, Brisbanites should be well-acquainted with Felons Brewing Co. For festivals on its lawn and movies in its Barrel Hall, everyone should know the spot as well. Also, it has become a regular go-to for Brisbane's creative community, with the Howard Smith Wharves brewery launching a makers' market in late 2023 — and bringing it back in 2024.

Taking over Felons' Barrel Hall twice a year — in March and October — The Great Artist Market features over 50 artists and makers. Attendees can spend a day browsing, buying and supporting local talents, going home with the mindfully made items that they have on sale. The next date: from 8am–3pm on Saturday, March 16.

Whether you're looking for gifts or just love art and design markets, expect a wide variety of makers and wares — with ceramics, illustrations, furniture and pickles just some of the choices that'll be tempting your wallet.

Also on offer: live music and DJ-spun tunes, entertainment including balloon twisting, pet portraits, and food and drinks. Sandwiches and bakery items will satisfy hungry stomachs, while coffee will add a spring to your step. And if you're keen on a beer after shopping, you're in the right place.
