The Market Folk presents Coorparoo Markets
Close that Etsy tab, Brisbane.
October 28, 2019
All good things evolve and change, and regular chances to browse and buy are no different. Since 2015, Metre Market has been setting up shop around town and hosting curated markets — and now it has gone and had a makeover.
It's time to bid farewell to Metre Market and say hello to The Market Folk — and to head along to the latter on Sunday, November 3, Sunday, November 17 and Sunday, December 1, too. Run by Brisbane entrepreneur Sarah Malengret, the event's focus is the same, but the change of name reflects its growth over the years. First started as a rack sale, letting stallholders sell their pre-loved clothes in a metre of space, it now features everything from fashion and food to arts, homewares and design items.
Eastsiders will find all of the above at Coorparoo Square from 10am–2pm, plus plants, skincare, accessories, bespoke jewellery and a soundtrack of live tunes. Fashion still features heavily, as does the chance to clear out your wardrobe, send your old outfits off to a new home and make some cash. Of course, if all you want to do is scour the tables for the best things money can buy from local up-and-coming designers, artists and makers, there's plenty of that on offer too.
