Five free markets to visit before Mother’s Day

Mum’s the word when it comes to these Melbourne markets. Whether you’ve got a mum, grandma, aunt or just an awesome person in your life that deserves some love, these markets will get your ready for 12 May.

Blak Makers Market

Often find yourself a week out from Mother’s Day with no gift, no card and no idea where to start? Feel free to make disorganised choices all over again, because this unique pop-up market is on exactly one week before Mother’s Day. Blak Makers Market will have everything from fashion and jewellery to foodie treats and workshops, showcasing 20 First Nations-owned businesses and performers. Sunday 5 May at Meat Market, as part of Yirramboi Festival.

The District Makers Market

Brought to you by Fitzroy’s famous Rose Street Market, Docklands’ own arty-crafty market offers an ever-changing line-up of creative, colourful, tasty stalls. From jewellery and homewares to artisanal produce, delightful discoveries await every Sunday afternoon at The District Makers Market. Plus enjoy tasty treats and live entertainment, with everything under cover. You’ve got time to head down a few times before the big day, or make a date of it with Mum on the 12th and take her on a Docklands adventure.

Europa Night Market

You may know the Europa Night Market is one of the best mid-week spots for a bev, a boogie and some brilliant food. But alongside the foodie pop-ups and excellent ‘Brexit Bar’ are over 20 awesome retail stalls that are bound to offer some great gifts for mum.

Think Australian made jewellery from Mica & Macc, retro picks from Winkie Vintage and authentic homewares from Made in Japan – just to name a few. Europa is on Wednesday nights until 8 May, so there’s still plenty of time to get your presents in order.
