TONIGHT we open the doors to the Finders Keepers Sydney Spring / Summer 2015 Market, now over a huge THREE days at Australian Technology Park, Eveleigh!
Head to the market and enjoy all it has to offer from 6pm Friday (tonight) until 10pm, continuing on Saturday from 10am until 6pm and Sunday from 10am until 4pm. Yes that’s right! We are hosting the markets over three massive days again after the huge response to our AW15 market. Thank you Sydney!
With our new Sunday opening times, you can now fill your entire weekend with market shopping! As always, we’ll have our impressive line-up of independent art and design stalls, tasty food trucks, treats from our artisan food stalls and sweet tunes from our much-loved live music stage.
All this for just $2 entry (and kids under 12 are completely free)! Find your favourite designers by downloading our stall site map ahead of time here [Download pdf size 255kb]. Plan your route to the historic Australian Technology Park, Eveleigh and find all the information you need over here on our special Sydney markets page.
NB: Saturday will see our venue, the Australian Technology Park, simultaneously hosting an open day. We expect this to increase our visitor numbers substantially, and additionally anticipate an impact to available parking and local traffic. We strongly suggest you plan your day carefully and use public transport where possible, particularly if you have decided to visit on Saturday.
