The Big Design Market

Sydney’s biggest art and craft event brings together the best independent local and international designers.

Kicking off on November 24 for three colour-filled days, The Big Design Market is back in Sydney just in time for Christmas.

Taking over the Royal Hall of Industries aka Showbag Pavilion in the Centennial Parklands, The Big Design Market is your chance to support independent designers for their creative efforts.

Over 200 stallholders will gather together under the one roof, selling everything from homewares, textiles, fashion, jewellery, ceramics, stationery, lifestyle products, tech accessories and gifts for kids.

Some of the highlights to keep an eye out for include leather accessories from Sydney-based designers A-Studio; natural skincare by Alo; and handmade jewellery from the incredible Erika Harder.

Instead of grabbing the same old things from the same old stores, this is a chance for you to find the ultimate original gift – one that you know has the quality of being handmade and won’t have several thousand identical versions floating about too.

If that wasn’t enough, treat yourself to one of the showbags on entry where, for $15, you’ll take home $85 worth of samples and products from various stalls.

Admission to The Big Design Market is a mere $2, and once inside you’ll be able to indulge in plenty of food and drink selections if your stomach so desires.

The Big Design Market will take place for three days, starting November 24, at the Royal Hall of Industries.
