How does your market stand out from the crowd?
At The Rose St. Artists’ Market, we’re lucky to be able to showcase some truly original and unique stallholders that you won’t find at other markets. We focus on giving emerging artists and designers a platform to sell their wares, so we end up with very raw and experimental products on show. It all adds up to a feeling of discovery on every visit to the market.
Is there a particular theme to your market?
Yes, we focus on unique handmade art and design stalls. We have everything here, clothing, jewellery, accessories, artwork, ceramics, homewares and more.
What food and drink is on offer?
The market eatery Young Bloods specialises in vegetarian breakfast and lunch dishes while you can enjoy local craft beers and cocktails at our rooftop bar.
What’s your quirkiest market item?
The great thing about Rose Street is that you never know what you’ll see on market day. We encourage all types of makers to get involved, so it really can be an eclectic selection of products. One stand out were these super intricate and realistic food items made from felt. From tins of tuna to cartons of milk to a ripe banana.
