Who doesn’t love moseying around a good market ground; locking eyes with mysterious little handmade goods and copping whiffs of tantalising cuisine from unknown sources. Come October, Made On The Left Christmas Market will be the ideal place for doing such things at Esplanade Park in Fremantle.
Made On The Left is Perth’s longest running handmade designer market, and it’s making a comeback on Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 October between 10am and 5pm across the two-day span.
All the stall holders that’ll be present at Made On The Left will be slinging products entirely and lovingly handmade right here in Western Australia. With over 100 artisans showcasing their wares, there’s bound to be at least one, one-of-a-kind prezzie in store for you.
You’ll be able to find traditional and eccentric jewellery, quirky homewares, vintage and retro garments, salacious handmade treats, luxury candles, creative plants, and surprises made from recycled goods. As well as elegant original canvas prints, dynamic watercolour masterpieces, and illustration art.
Made On The Left is a not-for-profit organisation that was formed in 2008 by five independent designers with the intention of supporting Western Australian creative talent. The bonus aspect of markets is that you often get to experience the people behind the craftsmanship and find out the inspiration of what they hold near and dear. It makes that new pendant, unique garden pot or oil painting of yours all the more special.
Made On The Left is a pet friendly event, is free to attend, and food trucks will be close by if you’re in need of a hefty meal. Plus, the grassy park is sure to be easy on the feet – browsing has never looked more comfortable, and finding a spot to take a shopping break ain’t never been easier.
Made On The Left Christmas Market runs from Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 October between 10am and 5pm – but if you can’t wait until then, check out these two markets that are all set for two weekends in September.
