Guest author Katrina Roocke of Roocke Cookies has written this article for Think Tasmania about the Hello Summer Saturday Market to be held this weekend (Saturday) from 10:00am–2:00pm at the Grand Mercure Hotel in Hobart.
It’s another chance to shop handmade for Christmas. But given it’s such short notice, we’ve also included links to the Facebook pages of the stall holders where possible. They’d love to hear from anyone looking for presents this year!
Hello Summer! Saturday Market in Hobart
Following on from the success of the Mumpreneurs Market held in September, Hobart’s talented mums are sewing, cutting, pasting, painting, exhibiting, baking and making again in preparation for the next market on 1 December 2012.
New Name: Same Great Shopping Experience
A brand new name has been given to the seasonal market: Hello Summer Saturday Market and it has a changed time slot of 10:00am–2:00pm. However visitors at the market can still expect the same warm and welcoming environment, the opportunity to browse and buy with ample space for prams; and a licenced bar for sips of bubbles as you ponder your Christmas wish list.
While you are there, visit each stall to get your “passport” stamped, and you’ll be in the running to win some great prizes, kindly donated by the stall holders.

The Hello Series Seasonal Markets were created following a ‘Mumpreneurs’ bootcamp run by the Hobart Mums Network. Following the first market in September 2012, they re-branded and opened applications to all Hobart Mumpreneurs who are creating beautiful things, running businesses and of course juggling families as well. You can contact the co-ordinators of the Hello Summer Saturday Market by email.
