The Makers and Shakers Market

Get your design fix, feed your hunger for fashion or simply get inspired at the best hand-made craft fair in Sydney.

With Mother’s Day just around the corner (okay, a month around the corner) or maybe just on the hunt to find that something a little out of the ordinary for yourself (or someone equally as special), make your way over to the Makers and Shakers Market. 

Taking place at Marrickville Town Hall on Saturday, April 1 (not a joke), the Movers and Shakers Market is a collection of affordable and often hand-made homewares, fashion, jewellery and gourmet foods. 

Brought together by the wonderful team behind the Round She Goes fashion markets, Movers and Shakers celebrates the wonderful talents of Sydney’s local craftspeople and artisans.

This is where you need to go if you care about how something was made, where it was created and by who – ethical workmanship and transparent dealings are all the rage here. 

The line-up for April’s fair is a particularly sweet one, with some new faces mingling in with crowd favourites. 

There are ceramics and homewares from the wonderfully talented Hayden Youlley Design and Clay Canoe; delicious pies from the bakers at Broomfields; and totally awesome badges and pins from accessory label Milk Thieves. 

Entry to the market is a cool $2 donation and there is plenty of parking in the region. 

The Movers and Shakers Market will be held at Marrickville Town Hall on Saturday, April 1.
