Eveleigh Artisans' Market - Challenge: Explore Sydney's Best Markets

My tour of 'Sydney's Best markets' continues as part of the Life List challenge of showing people the amazing things about Sydney.

Recently I visited the Eveleigh Artisans' Market, held at CarriageWorks in Darlington, Sydney.

Eveleigh Artisans Market is an undercover market held in the Blacksmith’s Workshop adjacent to Carriageworks.

It is held on the first Sunday of the month and showcases the works of emerging and independent designers and artists.

It was lovely to see some truly unique and beautiful works being sold by the artists themselves.

Alas I didn't buy anything, as I have been put on a strict purchase ban by 'husband' (so I can achieve #46 'pay off my credit cards'). But it was still great to do some window shopping and discover some new artists and their amazing works.
