Cronulla Autumn Market
The two-day market will feature local winemakers and distilleries, fresh produce, live music and hot food stalls.
Autumn weather is a real sweet spot for outdoor activities. The temperature hasn't dropped so far you need to heavily rug up, but you're also not running the risk of a sweltering summer day. For those in the shire looking to get out-and-about this autumn, a weekend-long market is popping up in Cronulla from the team behind the Ryde Wharf Market.
Originally slated for Easter, the event was postponed due to heavy rain. Cambridge Markets is returning to Sydney's south coast this weekend, taking place at the coastal Don Lucas Reserve and featuring over 180 stalls from a range of vendors. If you're heading down for a bite to eat, you'll find food stalls serving Israeli, Spanish, Thai, Italian and South American cuisine, as well as locally grown produce to take home and whip up your own culinary creation.
As with any good market, there will be a range of stalls selling handmade goods from designers, brands and producers such as sustainable Sydney fashion company Saint Jane, Savannah Estate winery, vegan dip maker TLV and local distilleries Buffalo Vale and Mobius. Live music will soundtrack the weekend and the kids will be thrilled by the rides and amusements.
Market organiser Madelienne Anderson expresses the importance of local markets and their role in supporting small businesses. "By supporting the sort of micro businesspeople who sell at our markets, they are helping a wide network of families to thrive, and buying things they can't get elsewhere," Anderson says.
The markets will be open 10am–3.30pm on both Saturday, May 15 and Sunday, May 16.
