How'd you like to populate your Christmas feast with local, artisanal goods to make your relatives impressed and your in-laws floored? Carriageworks is bringing back their Christmas Market, where you can buy fresh seasonal produce just a couple of days before Christmas. Importantly, you can also buy gifts just days before the big day — because we know what you're like.
Taking over Carriageworks' regular Saturday morning meet on December 23, the market will go all Christmas with a cornucopia of the spoils of 115 of Australia's best producers, restaurants and designers — think homemade plum puddings, succulent hams, fresh cherries, smelly cheeses and more.
Expect the best from the weekly Carriageworks Farmers Market and more, including Christmas hams from Linga Longa Farm, cherries from Kurrawong Organics and gluten-free mince tarts from Kitchen Green. Plus, there'll be plenty more joining the party — expect to see Cornersmith, Flour and Stone, Pasta Emilia, Suzy Spoon's Vegetarian Butcher and Pepe Saya there too. Of course, you can grab a snack as well, with Billy Kwong, Bar Pho, Agape Organic and Bibim Bowl setting up stalls for the morning.
Look at that, Carriageworks just saved Christmas.
