Grow It, Make It, Bake It Market Emerald
So the Emerald Craft and Produce Market which has always been a favourite of mine,has a new little sister. The pragmatically named Grow It, Make It, Bake It Market Emerald.
I am one of the younger children in a very big family so I know what it is like to be left at home while every one else in the family is attending the ball. So I thought I had better show my support and get along to this new little market in beautiful Emerald. The Grow it, Make it, Bake it Market was launched in mid 2014, and is held on the first Sunday of the month at Emerald Mechanics Institute from 9am- 2pm. I visited on the first day of Autumn and was pleasantly surprised to find myself enjoying some sweet busking and a sausage in bread whilst wandering around one of the sweetest Art Deco buildings in the area.
The market seems to be supported by the local Lions Club, although I don’t really know what that means….. Hilltop Meats and Fancy Friands were two of my favourite stalls although there was quite a range of craft wares on display also. Craft is not exactly my thing though, often making me break out in a sweat, so I am more naturally drawn to the food stops.
Sophie and Ryan’s Preserves and Pastries were there, looking awesome and delicious although minus the pastry. https://www.facebook.com/sophieandryans
So was Darnum Park Estate. https://www.facebook.com/biagiolio
Emerald Lake Park is literally just around the corner and is a great place to visit for so many reasons. http://www.cardinia.vic.gov.au/Page/Page.aspx?Page_id=3701
If you need to
then Emerald Lake Park is the place to do it.
So although the Emerald Craft and Produce Market is still my favourite, little sister “Grow it, Make it, Bake it” is also worth the visit. I am sure there is room in our hearts for both of them. As is with the Kardashian sisters, so is in life. Grow it, Make it, Bake it might not “break the internet” but is still awesome to take a look at.
First Sunday of every month at the Emerald Mechanics Hall. 10am to 3pm.
Enjoy! Dani xx
