This is the day you can check out products and community groups focused on domestic green sustainable living. You can discover the latest in green technology for the home, buy specialist green/sustainable products, and speak to a variety of government agencies and companies about what programs, assistance and products they provide to the community and householders. You can find products made using low energy, organic techniques or recycled materials, organic food and information on relevant green initiatives. Browse and buy everything from low energy lamps made from recycled pieces, gorgeous doll houses made from vintage suitcases, pre-loved dolls given a new lease of life, electric bikes, upcycled Indian silk saris, recycled timber furniture, enjo cleaning products and homewares made from recycled materials.

So it’s ready set Green! at the markets on Sunday 20 September.
