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!
We’re so excited to be back at Portside wharf this Saturday! The colourful selection on offer will brighten up your day, with a fresh pop of florals and gorgeous homewares just in time for a springtime home refresh. The scents of spring will be floating on the breeze, with new releases from some of your favourite candle creators.
We are just a little bit obsessed with the line-up this week. Uh oh bank account! With over 40 stalls on offer you can freshen up your home decor with a range of art, ceramics, homewares, candles, pots and plants. Brighten up your wardrobe for the warmer weather with a selection of vintage and locally-made fashion, and treat your kids (or fur babies) with children’s toys and dog treats & accessories.
Stay social! 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!
