While there's no shortage of markets running in Sydney this month, one to add to your list is the South Eveleigh Openair Artist Markets — open on Thursday, December 1 and Friday, December 2, from midday-8pm each day.

While we would never go all Grinch on you and suggest you skip Sydney's Christmas-themed bazaars, feel free to shake things up with this end-of-year affair where the stalls aren't strictly focused on all things Santa.

Instead, you'll find a plethora of pop-ups offering unique present ideas. Specifically, there's contemporary art by the likes of Catherine McGuiness, Lional Bawden and Kieran Butler which ranges from acrylic drawings, printed textiles and posters.

Plus, you'll enjoy live music by DJ Kombi & Co and snacks from the eateries on Locomotive Street including Eat Fuh, Fishbowl, Lucky Kwong and Pepper Seeds Boutique Thai Bites. Thirsty Thursday happy hour by Whitton will run from 4-6pm on December 1, while BrewDog South Eveleigh will celebrate the opening of its new location within the iconic and historic Locomotive Workshop by giving the first 200 customers through the door the chance to win free beer for a year.

Add in the fact that the event is a showcase by Studio A — a social enterprise that tackles the barriers faced by artists with intellectual disabilities — and we don't think you'll mind the missing mistletoe decor much at all.
