If you’re missing your weekly hit of local markets, don’t fret! Because as of the 19th of April 2020, The Market Folk have created an online platform for you to shop and support local artisans, designers, and lovers of all things creative.
In recent weeks, self-isolation and social distancing have taken its toll on Australians with small businesses taking a massive hit. But with The Market Folk’s new online markets, you can browse over 50 market stalls online and shop till your heart’s content from the comfort from your own home. On the website, you’ll be able to shop for fashion, art, home ware, accessories, eco-products, skincare and more!
The Market Folk, previously known as Metre Market, was founded in 2015 with a mission to support local creative businesses. At their market events, you can typically find a welcoming community, good food and coffee, fashion, accessories, plants, dog accessories, second-hand racks, handmade items and more. All market events have currently been suspended until further notice due to COVID-19 restrictions but The Market Folk can usually be found at Gasworks Plaza (76 Skyring Terrace, Newstead) or Coorparoo Square (300 Old Cleveland Road, Coorparoo).
