Tasmania is known for its vibrant and varied market culture, including mammoth events every Saturday, such as Salamanca Market on the Hobart waterfront. But we also do smaller village markets really well down here.
The most recent market we attended, Woodbridge Market, was rebranded for a one-day-only grand event – “The Market in the Meadow” – part of the Ten Days on the Island event, a celebration of art and talent in Tasmania.
Located for one perfect Sunday only at The Art Farm, Birch’s Bay, it was a wonderous event, no less because of the fantastic weather and gorgeous meadow location.
Whether it’s food, craft, entertainment or style, markets can be a source of inspiration for all manner of gifts. They are really the best place for people’s creative imagination to run riot.
If you like the idea of rust and decay in your garden as I do, then Jak Garden Art is well worth looking up on Facebook
When I see the amazing local produce at the weekend markets, a lot of it organic, I wonder why we shop in the big supermarkets for veggies.
Gifts and craft galore, and as much as you can imagine it, someone has created it. I just love food badges…I wonder why?
And if you get hungry, which you will, then there is always something to get you through until you get home.
And so to brunch, from Pepperberries Garden Cafe on site at the market. Homemade toast and Not Tonight Honey honey, gorgeous soft boiled eggs and local bacon with a million dollar view. What could be better on a Sunday morning!
