Footscray Finds - the freshest artisan market in the west

While Melbourne's got no shortage of great artisan markets happening across the city each weekend, the inner west has  missed out on most of the action. But that all changed on June 18, when new monthly market Footscray Finds kicked off its first run in the carpark of Footscray Library.

It was cold and dark when got there to set up at 7:00am but we soon warmed up with coffee and homemade pastries from the neighbouring stands. Lots of curious punters wondering about these upside down gardens with water at the bottom growing free organic food....

With a focus on the boutique, the unique and the handmade — and held in conjunction with Maribyrnong City Council — this event's got an offering to rival that of many of its more established, cross-town counterparts. Scheduled for the third Sunday of each month, it's set to showcase a stellar lineup of local producers and makers with a huge array of stalls covering everything from covetable vintage fashion and books, to vinyl, handcrafted homewares and fresh vegan produce.
