What a great day!

Well, that's another one in the bag: our final Barn Market for 2010 was a huge success! We saw a constant stream of people filling bags to the brim with high quality artisan products, tasting gourmet food, drinks and wines and even picking up a new skill or two as they observed the demonstrations from The Craft Hive.

We are pleased to report that the Barn Market will be returning in 2011 to tempt you with even more boutique and ever-intriguing wares from our growing array of artisans. We would like to thank the community of greater Hobart (and particularly the Eastern Shore) for their support and continued interest in The Barn Market throughout 2010; your response has far outweighed our expectations. We look forward to what 2011 will bring.

We'll see you in 2011...

Market #5 - This Saturday!

The FINAL Barn Market for 2010 promises to be another hit; jam-packed with high quality products!

The Barn Market has been well received by the community of Hobart since commencing in February this year. And, our final market for the year will not let you down.

With an abundance of high quality artisan products and local produce available you will be sure to find a treat or two and perhaps even get some early shopping done for Christmas.

Stalls will be overflowing into the courtyard where you will also find a gourmet BBQ, fine coffee and cakes to enjoy.

We are introducing a new feature this time with The Craft Hive ‘teacher-bees’ running several demonstrations throughout the day (The Craft Hive is a local business or ‘hive’ offering craft classes/demonstrations and locally hand-made products).

We’re also happy to announce that face painting for the kids will be available at 11am - 12pm & 1pm - 2pm

You won’t want to miss this one!
