The largest outdoor market in Adelaide, the Gilles Street Market Grand Bazaar, is back bigger and better than ever this year. On Sunday 3 December there will be 170 market stalls, fresh Christmas trees to buy, workshops, an abundance of delicious food and great live music, spilling out onto Gilles Street from 10am-4pm. Here’s just a snipped of what’s to come…
Fresh Christmas Trees
Ever wondered why we have fake Christmas tress instead of real ones? Well imagine the smell and feel of a real trimmed Pinus radiate tree. Now THAT’S Christmas. Luckily, they’re actually not that hard to get hold of. The Christmas Tree Plantation will be popping up at the Gilles Street Market Grand Bazaar this weekend, giving you the opportunity to pick your own tree that’s cut and ready to go. It’ll set you back around $75-$85 for either a 5ft or 6ft tree but are promised to be long-lasting.
Gifts Of All Shapes, Sizes & Budgets
Once you’ve picked your tree, you can wander the market stalls and start ticking a few things off your Christmas shopping list. Look out for crowd favourites such Luna And Luxe; boutique paper artisans, Elm Paper; plant & terrarium purveyors, Dig. Plant. Life; Rustic Lights Co. and Brooks & Badger – accessories for the Dapper Male. If you’re on the hunt for the perfect Christmas outfit, you’ll want to head for the BNKR and The Wolf Gang (exclusive to Gilles St) sample sales. Or why not get your favourite outfits illustrated by Cassias Closet.
