Best Markets in Sydney

Food, design & vintage markets in Sydney

Surry-Hills-Market

Markets have been an integral part of the city of Sydney since its founding in the late 18th century. They form an intimate connection between culture and commerce. At last count, there were more than fifty markets in the city and its surrounding suburbs. Most are open on a regular basis, but others have more limited operating hours. Let us take a moment to review three of the most popular markets in Sydney.

Founded as a community market in 1981, the Surry Hills Market was one of the first in the area to trade in handmade, secondhand, and recycled goods. This gave local low-income residents the opportunity to earn a little extra money and also attracted tourists. Although it has become wildly popular in recent years, it has not forgotten its roots as simple community market. Held on the first Saturday of every month from 7:00 am to 4:00pm, the Surry Hills Markets serve as an important fundraiser for the Surry Hills Neighbourhood Centre.

Finders Keepers & Vinyl Tees launch!

Finders-Keepers

Vinyl Design attended for the second time last week end the Finders Keepers Design Market held at the Carriage Works in Sydney.

It was, as previously, a great experience, the building itself is beautiful and full of atmosphere, there was live music, food & drinks and, of course, lots of amazing new design products ranging from stationary to clothing to housewares and jewellery.

We took this great opportunity to launch our new line of organic t-shirts and we were very pleased with the response.

People loved the feel and the softness of the cotton and we saw many smiling faces looking at the designs and packaging of our tees!

The best sellers were "9 Bugs T-shirt", "Geckos T-shirt", "Bots T-shirt" and "Plane T-shirt".They're pictured above and you will find them soon online!
