The popular Vintage Village Markets return to Fairfield City Museum & Gallery in September to celebrate the City’s diverse community.

The free family-friendly event, held on Sunday 10 September, will feature a diverse array of stalls, garden club display, tasty food, live music performances and children’s activities.

Mayor of Fairfield City Frank Carbone said the event connects local creatives with the wider community.

“Fairfield City Museum & Gallery’s Vintage Village Markets provide a valuable platform for artists, collectors and organisations to showcase their wares to the local community,” Mayor Carbone said.

“The markets are also a fun, free day out for the whole family, where parents and children can find their own treasure from among the many great stalls.”

Visitors will discover vintage and children’s fashion, craft, homemade greeting cards, antiques, homewares, garden supplies, handmade ceramics and more.

“It’s a great opportunity to take something old and well-loved and give it a new home,” Mayor Carbone said.

“Children will be entertained and learn about fun ways to reuse glass or plastic bottles by creating their very own terrarium, while a live music performance from local indie duo, Jess and El, will captivate the crowd.”

Fairfield City Museum & Gallery’s social knitting group, ‘Spin A Yarn’, have greatly contributed to the markets. Their hand-knitted bunting, floral decorations and ‘yarn bombing’ around the grounds will add a splash of colour to the outdoor event.  

Guests can keep their bellies full by stopping off at a fundraising barbeque for The Garden Club of Fairfield or opt for vegan Egyptian street food. Caffeine lovers won’t feel left out as a coffee van will be parked on-site to help satisfy cravings.
