One of inner city Sydney's favourite regular markets is bringing the magic to the south. As of Saturday, September 3, the locality will be getting a brand new market. To be held at Discovery Point and aptly named Discovery Markets, it's promising a fiesta of independently grown, baked, designed and made goodness — from local produce and tasty treats to fashion pieces and homewares.
The brains behind this event are the same as those behind Chippendale's Brewery Yard Markets, Jacob Collier and Rupert Partridge. "Every stallholder has a unique story to tell," says Jacob and Rupert. "At Discovery Markets we want this to be recognised, by giving our visitors the opportunity to learn more about what they're buying and who they're buying it from."
And it's not just shopping you'll be doing. Been meaning to pick up the ukulele ever since you saw Amanda Palmer in concert? Join Tom the Pom at 12pm and 1.30pm for a class presented by The Work-Shop. Alternatively, learn how to make pasta the Italian way at a session led by Steffen Achtmann, resident teacher at Vive Cooking School and head chef at Jamie's Italian. It's free, but you must be one of 20 quick people to register online, which you can do over here.
After the launch, the Discovery Markets will be held on the first and third Saturdays of every month. Feel free to drive and load up your car with your loot — there's plenty of parking.
