C&G’s Guide to Family Market Riverside

Your weekend plans are sorted this summer with the Family Market Riverside in full swing from the 8th of December until the 23rd of February next year. Head down to the Riverside Summer Purple Patch in South Wharf each Sunday, and soak up some Vitamin D while shopping local and enjoying live music. The best part is this event is completely free and suitable for all ages! C&G will be sharing the activities we’re most excited for in this latest blog – have a read!

The stalls participating at this market will cater to everyone, adults and kids alike. You can stock up on home décor or finalise your Christmas shopping with handmade jewellery, soaps, candles and curated gift boxes. The younger ones can enjoy some face painting, while others can get creative with henna tattoos. It’s not the real thing, but it’s always fun to see how the quirky designs look on your skin!

There will be no shortage of food at this market, with a generous all-day breakfast and brunch menu. Make it a bottomless endeavour with the many cocktails, beer and wine available! When 1pm comes around you’ll be able to enjoy some live music entertainment from local DJs. Sip your drinks and soak up the vibrant atmosphere alongside the river.

You’re right in the heart of Melbourne, so there is plenty to see and do once you’ve had your day at the market! If you’re stuck for ideas, check out our blog on exciting activities for the little ones and the list of restaurants participating in DineSmart 2019 if you want to eat for a good cause.
