Antiques have made a comeback. There’s no doubt about it. Art deco trends are here to stay, and the luxuriousness of antique, one-of-a-kind pieces is just one reason they’re so popular.

Calling all creative types! Time to ditch all things cyber, and get into all things fibre. Creative Fibre is on Sunday 9 July, and is the best day to engage with the textile artists who call the Canberra region home. Check out spinning and weaving demos, embroidery and arm knitting workshops, handcrafted homewares, clothing, hand printed textiles, tie dye kits, wool supplies and more.
It’s proven. Fresh is best. When it comes to the best foods for your body, the best idea is to ditch all packets and focus your eating habits on fresh fruit and veg. Our markets food area has some lovely fresh food for you each Sunday – like the selection of fresh fruit and vegetables from Rowan Farm Berries, and the lovely fresh apples from Treetops.
The life of a collector is most exciting. The thrill of the hunt for that perfect piece. Markets newcomer, Sarah Connell, knows all about that as she hits the markets for the first time this month with her business, All Tat Glitters. Coming from the junk style end of antique dealing, she sells quirky, classic, industrial and found objects.
Canberrans sure do love a new food product – something that looks pretty, they can take photos of and with, and that tastes delicious.
