Porteno Christmas Markets 2018
Some of Sydney's best local designers, eateries and booze suppliers will descend on the Surry Hills spot for one day.
It's beginning to look a lot like the festive season — and at Porteño, that means eating, drinking and shopping. Well, that's what the restaurant will be serving up at its second Christmas market, to be held at its Cleveland Street event space.
For a gold coin donation on entry — the proceeds of which will go to Westmead Children's Hospital — attendees will find local designers, creatives and some of Porteño's shop-owning faves all descending upon Cleveland Street for a merry ol' day of gift browsing and buying. Expect all of your canned and pickled goods needs to be taken care of by Continental Deli and Cornersmith, meaning that you can stock up on some edible Christmas essentials as well. Plus, Cork & Chroma will be running a three-hour painting class if you think something homemade will have more resonance.
Taking place from 9am to 4pm on Sunday, December 16, the market will also look after your hunger and thirst while you're perusing the stalls and shelves, courtesy of caffeinated brews from 212 Blu, gelato from Redfern's Ciccone & Sons and Porteño kitchen's own bites to eat. As for something stronger, you'll find booze from Jacoby's Tiki Bar and quality drop from Jed Wines — whether you're celebrating once you've wrapped up all your pressie purchasing for the year, or getting some liquid inspiration.
