Sip cocktails from Archie Rose while you shop for produce and gifts from the likes of Nonna's Grocer, Baba's Place, Pepe Saya and AP Bakery.
November 28, 2023
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 its Christmas Market, where you can buy fresh seasonal produce just a couple of days before Christmas. Importantly, you can also buy last-minute gifts ahead of the big day — because we know what you're like.
Taking over Carriageworks on Saturday, December 23, the market will go full Christmas with a cornucopia of goodies from more than 100 of Australia's best producers, restaurants and designers. Think: homemade puddings, seafood, fresh cherries, award-winning cheeses and Christmas tree-shaped crumpets.
Expect the best from the weekly Carriageworks Farmers Market and more, including Christmas hams, handcrafted spirits, bottled cocktails and floral bouquets made to complete your Christmas table.
Just some of the stallholders include Bondi Oysters, Flour and Stone, AP Bakery, Broomfields, Nonna's Grocer, Wildflower Brewery, Kepos Street Kitchen, Yulli's Brews, Archie Rose, Baba's Place and Pepe Saya — offering a mix of takeaway goods and tasty things to costume on-site. Baba's is even bringing back its famed "Lebo Fillet-o-Fish" for just one day at the markets.
FBi Radio's Bindi Mutiara and Sam Lane will be unleashing their b2b DJ skills on the market and controlling the tunes together as their joint moniker BAM.
This will also be your last chance to hit up the Carriageworks Farmers Market in 2023, with the weekly get-together taking a three-week break following the special Christmas edition before returning from Saturday, January 20.
And, if you want to get your hands on a real Christmas tree, then you can head to the market in the weeks leading up to the official Xmas shindig. Dural Christmas Tree Farm is popping up at the Eveleigh hub for the markets on three Saturdays: December 2, 9 and 16.
