A new market is being planned for Fitzroy and the founders are looking for stall holders. The aim is to provide a space for local artisans, performers and musicians to sell and / or strut their stuff, raise awareness and $$$ for local community groups, and create a place for Fitzroy to hang out on a Saturday morning.
- WHERE: Fitzroy Primary School, Napier Street
- WHEN: Every Saturday 10am – 3pm
- HOW MUCH: $35 per stall per week
- Clothing designers
- Jewellery makers
- Crafty types
- Food & drink traders
- Would-be garage sale holders
They’re also on the lookout for buskers, performers, musicians and DJs to get involved. Gold coin entry will go to community groups working with disadvantaged people in the Fitzroy / Collingwood community. The founders are working with local organisations such as:
- Cultivating Communities
- Ecumenical Migrant Centre
- Fitzroy Learning Network
