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.

We hope to see you there.

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 rebranded 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 coordinators of the Hello Summer Saturday Market by email.
