2013 Essential guide to Art, Craft & Design Markets in Australia

We love going  to the markets, particularly designer markets. What a great way to buy direct from the artists, crafters and designers.

The last time we did our shopping at the market, we were delighted to meet so many talented people in one space. Everyone was there to share a passion for art, craft and design. It was so inspiring to experience that expression of passion, and to see such talent on display. We were especially fortunate to have some wonderful conversations with artists  and designers at markets. The most interest part was to learn a bit more of a story to go with our purchases. We were able to hear from the first hand from the artist and designers.

It was such a great experience!

Below is a list of art, craft & design markets all around Australia. We did all the hard yard for you and all you have to do it to diarise  these events in your diary or enter them into your smartphone. Very simple!

So do you have a favourite market you would like to share with us?
