Markets

Markets are a big part of our lives, at home in Bellingen and also on the road.

I love the farmer direct produce, fossicking for treasures, artisan made goods, crafts, antiques, music, clothing, food

and the general hum of  people coming together outside, to share time and shop in a very personal form.

I search out Organic produce, hand-made crafts and vintage collectibles.

Below is an expanding list of Markets we visit or have been recommended.

Feel free to send me your local markets to add…

Let’s nurture our communities!

I fully support Farmer’s Markets and am always pleased to find one to stock up,

to find them all over Australia

With 300 plus stalls, give this market lots of time!
I found it too busy for kids to enjoy after 11am and must confess I preferred fossicking on my own. Old things, lots of lovely old things with only a few new made stalls. Some savvy Turkish dealers with rows of estate boxes to rummage, be ready to bargain. It took me a couple of visits to build my courage but it was worth the 50percent reductions!
Streets of second hand clothing stalls! So fun!
I found some fabulous cotton vintage dresses and a button accordian, Polish ceramic ware and olive wood bread boards.
In the midst is a walled, sandy eating courtyard where you can quietly retreat for a bio (organic) sausage with sauerkraut and a bun. Don’t be overwhelmed by the 15 choices of mustard! Or get a pizza or a delicious mixed plate from the Turkish ladies. Yummy!
There’s a big green running alongside with buskers of varying talent and lots of people seem to picnic there.
I ended up getting a cab back to The main station (Hauptbahnhof) for 8 € instead of navigating the connecting trams on the way home.
Have fun if you go I’d like to hear about your treasures!
