Our March market was great. We had some new stalls and products, our loyal regulars, and, as always, fab and friendly stall holders! Stay in touch via Facebook, and lookout for our list of stallholders posted in the week prior to the market. If you think your village, suburb, or town needs our posters send me an email. Stick one on your car. New stalls always welcome. See you on the 5th!

Date change: February Market in March!

Attention!!! We've had a date change for our first market for 2014, and have pushed the market back to March 1st. The cushion CONcert will hopefully be on for March, people will have rested from the summer holidays and back to school frenzy, and our lovely makers will have made a whole bunch more fabulousness for you to admire!  Stick it in your calendar for March 1st, and we'll see you there.  For now, enjoy the last bits of the Summer Holidays x

to market, tomorrow~!

Members of Lismore local band,  The Button Collective will be joining us for the final Makers Market for 2013, this Saturday December 21 from 10-2.  The Button Collective are self-described as a ruckus of folk gypsy sounds, with a hint of bluegrass and probably more than a tinge of the Northern Rivers. They have been running a pozible campaign to raise funds for their upcoming CD.  If you haven't heard them yet, it might be time to discover your new favourite band, and order their upcoming CD...  Come down to the market with your shopping list, and time to spare to relax under the tree, soak up the Button Collective vibe and eat the great Italian-style vego food that will be available at the market.

On the festive front, the Lismore Makers Market is the best place in town to buy local, sustainably produced wares for your loved ones.   This market will feature a great range of makers, and include men's and women's clothing, skincare products, artwork and prints, letterpress stationary, functional and decorative ceramics, kids toys and gift ware, funky aprons, jewelry and more.  Check our facebook page for more details on individual makers.

If you're interested to find out more about the markets, or join us as a makers please check out our facebook page and send us an email.
