The locally-made scene has really taken off this year. In Canberra and across Australia.
Here at MFGD, we love supporting local businesses and with markets popping up almost every weekend, there is always a chance to scope out and support the local scene. Markets are fantastic places to buy just about anything you need. Fresh produce, beauty products, homewares, clothing, jewellery, stationery, cleaning products, artwork, frames, desk accessories, children’s gifts and much, much more.
In the lead up to Christmas and the New Year, the local market scene is exploding to provide you with a wealth of opportunities to buy local handmade gifts, decorations and holiday essentials; not to mention office and school supplies for 2016.
The MFGD team is excited to be a part of a whole range of markets as well as a ‘pop-up shop’ with our good friends Lazy Sunday Home and Little Papeterie during the Design Canberra Festival leading into Christmas.
Mark these dates in your calendar and get your Christmas shopping done while supporting local creatives. We guarantee by buying locally sourced and handmade products you’ll get some unique and inspiring gifts, all the while feeling good that you’re supporting local business.
Don’t forget to also try the local food and drinks available at the markets. Night Market Canberra and Taste Canberra, in particular have licenced bar and street food vendors on hand to help provide that festive spirit.
And as part of the festive spirit, visit us at any of the above markets and tell us ‘why you’re buying local this Christmas’, and we’ll give you two MFGD 2016 calendars for $80 - keep one for yourself and gift one for a close friend or family member.
Make this Christmas the year you buy local and support the wealth of amazing businesses in your creative town!
