"I hold a special place in my heart for craft markets Melbourne offers, as this is where I developed a real passion for anything to do with markets Melbourne had to offer.
My mother used to run her own stall selling shell jewellery. She was the one who finally convinced me to try my hand at crafting. Once I started, I soon began to realize that this was definitely a lifestyle that I I loved. I used to spend every weekend behind my stall, selling the crafts that I had produced the week before."
Well things haven't really changed much these days. There are some amazingly clever crafts people out there in the marketplace. Their crafts are beautiful, the styles may have changed along with their faces but the quality and uniqueness will never disappear!
Here are a few craft markets for those who love exploring the 'world of handmade'.
A Farmers' Market is basically a market where fresh food is sold.
Run by local communities and held at public venues on specific days, farmers and food producers are able to display and sell their 'wares' directly to the public.
You, the customer can make a direct contact with the producer and this allows for a two way conversation to take place. You are able to get the information on the product, directly from the source. This is a great advantage over purchasing any supermarket produce.
Farmers' markets Melbourne usually consist of stalls, tables or stands. These are set up outdoors
or indoors, where fruits, vegetables, meats, and sometimes
prepared foods and beverages are sold. They provide a source of fresh, quality and sometimes organically certified products.
The list here, represents some of Melbourne's finest farmers Markets. Visiting some of these in the outer regions makes for a great day out. Combine this with some sight seeing and you will love the adventure.
