NEXT MARKET: 07 & 08 SEP Add to calendar

OUR NEW DIRECTORY

OUR NEW DIRECTORY

We have spent the last few weeks sifting through all of the applications for the June Market. We have offered stalls and made sure that we have good representation over all of our categories. The list is now complete and we’re delighted to share our new DIRECTORY with you!

Head over to the website and browse all 270 designers and producers. You can look through them all or select a category that interests you. Our celebration of all things food & drink is evident in our selection of producers, in the GOURMET PANTRY, DRINKS and STREET FOOD categories. You can also browse our EXCLUSIVE category, which is full of stalls that don’t sell their products anywhere else in the Canberra region. Have a look at over 50 new designers and producers in our NEW category and share our excitement about all the new things that are coming to the market. Just to whet your appetite, here are a few to look out for.

Clockwise from top left: Mirri & Murrah, Willow’s Biscuit House, Hey Laidy, Yummy Thai Catering, Clare Mazitelli Designs, Kate Piekutowski.

CLARE MAZITELLI DESIGNS

Newly local to Canberra, Clare designs and makes printed linen bags, homewares and accessories. Her designs start as watercolour paintings, which she turns into patterns to print on linen and linen blend fabrics. Then she works more magic by adding embroidery, leather and other embellishments to give you something beautiful and functional.

HEY LAIDY

Laidy Byrne comes from the Mornington Peninsula and makes limited edition guitar, camera and bag straps. In true handmade style, each strap is made in small batches using eco-friendly hemp, woven ribbon and full grain vegetable tanned leather with quality hardware. Lady calls them timeless and authentic. Like listening to your favourite record on repeat and it only getting better with time.

KATE PIEKUTOWSKI

Another one to watch is Kate Piekutowski. She’s a printmaker turned textile designer, who engages with the architectural environment. She works with aluminium printing to create monochrome images with a splash of colour and applies them to jewellery, silk scarves, tea towels and cushion covers.

MIRRI & MURRAH

Continuing the art theme, Mirri & Murrah is the collection by indigenous Australian artist, Cheryl Davison. Her paintings and prints are of dreamtime stories from the Yuin people, South Coast NSW. Cheryl’s prints and gift cards are produced as limited edition giclee prints from her original art.

TEACHERS PET TREATS

Your four legged friends will appreciate this next new Canberran stallholder. Teachers Pet Treats doesn’t make mainstream products. Each treat is human grade, air dried , healthy and delicious.

WILLOW’S BISCUIT HOUSE

Time for a human treat. Try the beautiful and delicious artisan biscuits, indulgent melting moments and shortbread creams. Using only Australian ingredients and baked right here in Canberra, there are over 20 varieties, so we recommend you take your time when you visit this stall!

YUMMY THAI CATERING

If savoury is your thing, we have newcomers, Yummy Thai to tempt you. With the mission to bring the taste of Thailand to you, the ingredients are sourced locally and prepared here in Canberra. Designed for spice lovers and those who prefer it mild, the menu has something for everyone.
