This month’s Fitzroy Market is on tomorrow, Saturday 1st May, 10am – 2pm (and the first Saturday of every month) at Fitzroy Primary School, corner Napier & Chapel Street Fitzroy. Get your week’s worth of fresh fruit and veg from Cultivating Community and help support low income community gardens projects in the City of Yarra.

This month the market also features the folk and country vocal stylings of Teresa Dixon (from local trio Little Sisters of the Poor) Melbourne-based indie-folk violin and guitar duo Aristotle’s Chimney, playing dynamic traditional and contemporary music infused with celtic, gypsy and roots elements. There will be Ukele action from Melperthian Claire Hollingsworth, playing whimsical folk pop and ‘Songs from the Hill’ (co-written with students from Brunswick North West Primary), local busker Mark Nunan’s emotionally-charged folk rock combined with cunning pop sensibilities and live art (while you wait) from Ero.

There’s also early 50 stalls filled with hand made, second hand, vintage and recycled treasures … plus great coffee and yummy treats for breakfast or lunch. Your gold coin entry donation goes to Fitzroy learning Network‘s Refugee Support Program and Fitzroy Primary School‘s Kitchen Garden Project fund.
