We will be back at the Ecology Pavilion Mile End Park this Spring on the weekend of April 21st and 22nd. April 22nd is Earth day and to celebrate we are curating the market with a green edit. The 2018 theme is End Plastic Pollution so we are minimising all single use plastics as much as we can. Please see all makers taking part here.
Applications are now closed
We know by it’s very nature that handmade is sustainable so we would like to highlight and celebrate this. We have not only selected makers based on their unique designs but also on their sustainable and green practices, packaging and ethics.
We are offering green workshops, sustainable activities for kids and vegan and vegetarian food, Spring Cocktails. We encourage everyone to bring their own re-usable shopping bags, straws and coffee cups. We will have a basket of second hand tote bags which customers can help themselves to.
