Glebe Artisan's Market
Glebe Artisans Market is all about handmade and locally made products, sold by the artist or designer who created them. The quarterly market takes place at Foley Park and there’s usually around 50 stallholders selling jewellery, plants, furniture, fashion and children’s toys. Stallholders are likely to change each season, but previous markets have championed the wares of Parva Skincare, Mona-Lisa Ceramics, and hand printed cushions from Bob Window.
Takes place this Sunday.
Night Market- Cooking With Fire.
Inspired by the theme ‘Cooking with Fire’, Carriageworks’ winter Night Market is a celebration of the diverse cultural relationship between food and the elemental force of fire.
Carriageworks is joined by guest curator, Lennox Hastie – chef and owner of Sydney’s Firedoor, Australia’s only fully wood-fuelled restaurant. Hastie has helped select the state’s leading restaurants and providores to cook with fire in all its forms – from Argentinian grill, to Sri Lankan smoked curries, Italian wood fired pizzas and wok fried Thai – whether flames, coals, smoke, or char.
