things we loved at our summer market...

Giant Summery strawberries from I four letter word you.

Majestic birds in flight on the NosMos stall.

Wonderful wooden wares from the award winning duo at Indeco.

Tempting designs in cheerful colours from Melly Frank.

Thanks to all who visited our Summer event, there was so much on this weekend in Hobart, we were thankful people managed to squeeze in some local love, and visited the market for our bevvy of independent artists,designers and makers. A big thanks to our stallholders, who really stepped up to our showcase of seasonal wares (check out more pics in the gallery), and an extra special welcome to all the new talent that joined us, we hope you had a lovely day! Our next event will be for Autumn, on May 15th. Wishing everyone a blissful (and sunny) remaining couple of weeks of Summer!

Bye for now,

Miss Haidee - Apart from the adorable models, these children’s clothes are just the sweetest thing for special little people...made the old fashioned way, with gorgeous vintage style fabrics, simple- fuss free designs, and lots of love.

Design duo Kat and Hoang from Studio Oat are rather popular at the market and for good reason. Their gorgeous stationery reminds us all of the important things in life like love & friendship...and on a less soppy note, it is completely eco friendly, and comes in a vibrant selection of colours!

Hurrah! It’s the first market for 2011, and the first of our fun new format of seasonal markets. And what a season it is....Summer in Hobart is an exciting time. With so much to see and do, yummy food and drink to sample and great local art and design on show, there are people bustling about everywhere. Make sure you bustle on down to our special Summer collection of stall holders on Sunday the 13th...we have everything you could possibly need (and want) for the season of sunshine!

Visit the market for pretty silk flowers to pop in your hair, lovely cotton clothing in the form of singlets and tshirts, beautifully handmade ceramics...including particularly fetching tealight holders...perfect for creating a little glow outdoors on a warm evening. The summer market also features diverse array of jewels, bags, and accessories in fresh designs, and seasonal colours and fabrics.

Here at the market we are proud to say we have a wonderful selection of locally designed + made stationery...and the Summer market is no exception! Lovely new designs abound, and we think it is just in time, with so many occasions over summer, it’s a lovely time to send a card to a friend, or pick up some beautiful wrapping paper to wrap a special gift.

We also have lots of sweet little treats that would be just right for a gift, or perhaps just something for you to enjoy, like delicious jars of locally made jam in special flavours, loose leaf organic tea and bars of nicely scented soap.

For more of a sneak peek of who and what will be on offer, check out the coming posts for our ten featured stallholders, some very exciting new designers included..and follow the kites upstairs to see their wonderful wares on display. While you’re up there, you could have a little laze around with the papers and some fine market fare in the lounge, AND go in the draw to win a $100 market gift voucher...yes please.

So don’t go fly a kite on Sunday 13th until you’ve dropped by to see what’s happening at the market.
