Bayside Design Market returns to Brighton

Local makers and creators will be selling their wares at the Bayside Design Market in Brighton this Saturday.

The market, which will feature handcrafted treasures, will take place at the picturesque grounds of Billilla Mansion Gardens.

With music provided by the Bayside Chamber Orchestra and a sausage sizzle hosted by the Brighton Lions Club sausage sizzle, it’s sure to be a relaxing way to spend the weekend.

This will be the fourth Bayside Design Market, which began in 2015, and has steadily increased to offer a thriving boutique market experience.

Bayside Mayor Cr Alex del Porto said the Bayside Design Market gave local designers and makers the opportunity to promote and sell their work.

“Celebrating art, craft and design contributes to building community connections – the arts are for everyone. The Bayside Design Market brings visitors together with local makers and artists in a relaxed setting for an enjoyable day out,” he said.

Nineteen local designers and makers will showcase their work, giving visitors to the market a chance to meet the people behind the designs.
