Bondi Yoghurt at Bondi Farmers Market

Bondi Yoghurt is luscious and locally made by a husband and wife team. Carolina is a biologist and Chris is a designer by profession and furniture maker by trade. They both use their specific skill sets in growing the business-all up…a recipe that works! The locals love them and their protein rich products.

With a creamy texture and characteristic tang, yoghurt is  a treat that can be enjoyed with most meals, whether fruity, grain-based…even as a cooling accompaniment to spicy savoury dishes.

We talk all things sweet and sour with Chris to hear his words about the curds…

Davies Park Markets

Solar Citizens Unite!

Are you sick and tired of power bills becoming more and more expensive? Solar might just be the answer. The volunteer team from www.solarcitizens.org.au will be at Davies Park Market this Saturday, conducting the Great Solar Power Poll, and they’d love for you to pop by and say hi!

Australia is one of the sunniest continents on earth, so producing power from the sun just makes sense.

This has been recognised by millions of Australians who have chosen to take energy generation into their own hands.

One million rooftop power stations are now lighting up homes around the country. And many more households are looking to solar as a way to manage their energy bills, creating cleaner energy along the way.

Young Designers Market

Happy Animal Art!

The Young Designers Market is a feel good place, with fun and funky happening everywhere you look. We’re so pleased that Maree Davidson has joined us from The Collective Markets, bringing her delightful art and eye catching stall with her!

.

We asked Maree where she draws her inspiration from (‘scuse the pun!), to which she replied:

“I have personally met a lot of the animals I have painted over the years. I interact with them, and get to know their personalities, which I then create into a painting - whether that be a fine art piece, or a quirky character I’ve been commissioned to paint. I also love painting animals in close-up poses, which can have a more contemporary look.”

.

You’ll love Maree’s original art as much as we do, so why not pop down to Young Designers Market this Sunday to meet the artist! Click “Read More” to find out more about Maree and see more great artwork.
