You've had a shit week, huh? Things have been a little humdrum, a little less than awesome? Sure, you could binge-watch The Handmaid's Tale and know everything could just be a little bit worse or you could take your sorry ass to an entire market dedicated to candy, pastry and chocolate — a thing that is happening in Sydney this weekend. We're here for you.
Coming to you from the ever-markety folks behind the Discovery Markets, Brewery Yard Markets and this weekend's Truckstop, Sweets and Treats is a one-day event dedicated to Sydney's finest lolly maestros, pastry practitioners and saucy, saucy chocolatiers. Forget your August, 2017 troubles with food stalls brimming with sugary business, have a little boogie to live music and hope no one social media-savvy sees you take on the doughnut eating competition. Not convinced? Put this free mulled wine by Handpicked Wines in your skeptical face and we reckon you'll have a good time.
Best bit? It's happening in two places over the weekend. You'll find Sweets and Treats at Discovery Markets (8 Brodie Spark Drive, Wolli Creek) this Saturday, August 5 from 9am-3pm, and at the Brewery Yard Markets at Central Park Mall, Chippendale on Sunday, August 6 from 10am-4pm.
