I'm the founder of The Market Folk. Thank you for stopping by our blog and being apart of what we do! We connect makers and shoppers - the way it once was, the way it should be!
If you’re looking for a family-friendly way to spend the weekend now that the Ekka is cancelled, then The Market Folk have the perfect solution for you! We’re enjoy our Winter markets in style at one of our favourite locations, and we’re sure the busy bustle of the Gasworks precinct is exactly what’s needed to get you out of that lockdown low. With over 40 stalls on offer this Saturday, this weekend’s market is an opportunity for you to support your local Brisbane businesses through this tough time.
The line up includes ceramics, art, homewares, vintage, children’s toys, dog accessories, candles, pots, plants, locally made fashion + more. Invite your friends on Facebook, follow the action on Instagram and once you’ve arrived, don’t forget to snap the market fun using #themarketfolk so we can see too!
