Melbourne’s Big Design Market Is Back Next Month

In Melbourne’s market calendar, Big Design is up there with Finders Keepers and the Queen Vic’s Summer Night Market. It’s pretty much all you need for a successful Christmas present mission—a massive collection of independent designers, artists, crafty-type people, foodies and furniture makers, serving up gift ideas by the thousand.

Anyway, the 2017 line-up just dropped, and it’s looking pretty outrageous.

Here’s a taster. There’s going to be Indigenous artists from The Kimberley region and designer Georgia Perry will be bringing the A-Grade accessories. There’ll be a mix of boutique furniture, homewares, jewellery, stationery and kids’ toys from some of the hottest artists going around, plus a food line-up that’ll make you drool all over your new palm leaf embroidered pillow.

Delicious names coming at you: Earl Canteen (with their brand new Wholebowls), Misschu, St. Ali, All Day Donuts, Messina, along with newcomers Candied Bakery, 5 & Dime Bagel, Mork Chocolate and Ace Cookies. Told you it was a stellar mix this year.

There’ll even be a new upstairs Balcony Bar, slinging cheese from Harper & Blohm, Starward whisky by the finger and frothies from Moo Brew and Faire Ferments. Did we mention the specialty Tea Lounge, serving artisan tastings and choccies from Luxbite?

Christmas sorted.
