Organisers are promising that the wet weather forecast for Canberra this weekend won’t rain on their parade, as they prepare for the Handmade Markets.

Over 260 stall holders are gathering at Exhibition Park for the latest instalment of the markets, selling things from food, wine, wares, crafts, decorations, and more!

Founder Julie Nichols said the event will be entirely indoors, so the rain shouldn’t be an issue.

“Three pavilions with everything you could possibly imagine. There’s a whole pavilion of food, wine, and drinks,” she said.

“And two other pavilions that have got everything from children’s-wear to beautiful handcrafted knives, furniture, fashion, jewelry, things for kids, homewares. There’s pretty much something for everybody.”

Doors officially open for business at 10am tomorrow, but Sunday morning is also marking a special moment. The markets will play host to it’s second ever Low Sensory Hour.

From 9am until 10am shoppers will be able to enjoy a reduced sensory, relaxed, and supportive environment, when lighting, music, and attendance numbers are lowered to give the markets a more peaceful atmosphere.

Julie is encouraging anyone interested in attending the Low Sensory Hour to register through the Handmade Canberra website, to help keep track of numbers.

“It’s just a really lovely way to start Sunday morning,” She said.

The Handmade Markets are on this Saturday and Sunday, from 10 until 4pm.
