There is always something happening at The District Docklands and we all know Mamma loves spending time checking out locally made goods at markets! This great market is happening every Sunday and continuing through spring AND summer, and is all handmade, homecooked or homemade - yay! They are now partnering with the amazing ROSE STREET MARKET in Fitzroy to bring you even more amazing stalls!
The location is really quite unique - it is undercover in the Art Collective Precinct Section so it has a great open feel without the worry of the weather impact. It is a great spot to pick up a unique piece to add to your collection from jewellery, homewares, gifts and artisanal goods - there is something for everyone. Even deliciously tasty fresh produce (choccie croissants!) to take home! With vendors changing every week it‘ll be worth returning to check out the latest selection every Sunday.
Mamma and the crew particularly liked the entertainment end of the market - there is a great little area set up for kids to sit down next to a coffee van, cake stall, balloon maker (by donation) and fantastic face painter ($5) PLUS the 'buskers' line up we got to enjoy was fantastic. So you can take a seat have a coffee and a cupcake and enjoy the tap dancers, acrobats and other fab performers!
Mamma's special mentions: Aside from the shops of course - there is heaps to do at The District Docklands. Check out Art Vo - 3D interactive art gallery, The Melbourne Star, O'Briens Skating Arena or the new Chipmunks play centre for starters! Plus there is heaps more inspiration here for FUN at The District Docklands.
