Valley Laneway Markets 2021
Browse your way through Fortitude Valley's laneways twice a month.
Fortitude Valley loves a laneway, with plenty popping up — or being brought to life, more accurately — across the inner city spot in recent years. And those laneways love markets. In fact, the trio that is Winn Lane, Bakery Lane and California Lane has been hosting various markets under various names for quite some time.
Since 2020, those different events have joined forces, taking on one communal moniker and popping up on the first Saturday of each month. This year, however, there's a change — with the markets taking place on the third Saturday of every month as well.
Running from 9am–2pm twice-monthly, Valley Laneway Markets will sprawl across the three stretches of pavement with an array of plants, ceramics, art, handmade goods and vintage fashion. At the beginning of the month, the event goes big on artisanal goods. Mid-month, it's all about plants and items for your pantry.
Head by to browse through the stalls, pop into the permanent retailers, and grab a bite to eat and something caffeinated from one of the many cafes and eateries in the area — whichever you're doing, you'll have a heap of options to choose from.
These markets also place a heavy focus on local talents, so when you're rifling through the racks, eyeing off some retro threads, and pondering picking up some jewellery or accessories — or something for your kitchen — you'll be supporting Brissie's best.
