To market....To market....
We've never seen so many markets popping up. From your organic farm fresh produce market (think Gasworks or the St. Kilda Farmers market), your local School Fete and your once a month Book Fair to the delightful Children's markets selling handmade gorgeous-ness (Magnolia Square, Mathilda's, Sugar & Spice Market, Fairy Floss etc).
They're a great way to spend a leisurely weekend, browsing, buying, eating some yummy food, drinking coffee and hanging out with family and friends.
Dig deeper into St Kilda and you'll discover a little mini oasis that is Veg Out Community Gardens. It's a perfect spot to stroll around and a quiet retreat to hang out with the kids in tow even if you don't have a plot.
There's so much more to Veg Out though than just the garden plots. Community working bees are a great way to help out and become involved in what goes on here. There's a VFMA farmer's market happening on the first Saturday of each month. Special events are held with the local community (Easter and Christmas events are popular) and there's a sandpit with toys and bikes for the kids. You'll also find some chickens, bunnies and birds amongst the veggie plots.
Located only two minutes walk from the Newport station, Reuse It Baby market is located at the grand Substation, 1 Market St Newport.
Come browse and stay a while while you sift through quality pre-loved items such as clothes, toys, shoes, books, prams & strollers, cots, change tables, women's wear including maternity and nursery furniture, as well as new arts and crafts.
Coffee and sausage sizzles are a regular feature at every market.
Nestled in a bend on the Yarra, this inner city farm is a Melbourne treasure, just 4kms from the CBD.
