Two huge seasonal markets will light up Sydney this Easter when the Cronulla Easter Market and the Ultimate Easter Market EQ return for 2023.
The Cronulla Easter Market will be held across the Saturday and Sunday of April 1-2 at Don Lucas Reserve Wanda Beach, Cronulla, from 10am-3pm.
The Ultimate Easter Market EQ will be held across the Saturday and Sunday April 8-9 at the Entertainment Quarter, Moore Park, from 9am-3pm.
The two Cambridge Markets events, which will each have more than 150 stalls, will bring fashion, art, craft, homewares, kids’ goods, candles, gifts, food and more to these two brilliant locations. There will also be a fabulous global gourmet fair at each event, bringing the best of world food to these locations. As well, there will be Easter-themed activations at the events, including the arrival of the Easter bunny to hand out eggs to little ones.
“Easter is a great time for markets,” said Cambridge Markets founder Madelienne Anderson. “The weather in Sydney is gorgeous, and the year is in full swing. It’s a great time for people to get together and do a bit of shopping and eating in the outdoors. These two beautiful locations are roomy and ideal for our big markets and both events are always action-packed and fun.”
She added that, as usual, the markets will be carefully curated to bring the best of NSW micro businesses to these huge events.
“We love finding and picking the best little businesses to bring to our markets,” Anderson said. “There are so many special businesses and people working away making and creating amazing products and we love being able to introduce those people to our big audiences.”
Some of the stalls involved in this year’s markets include, at Cronulla, Shire Succulents, Bowerbird Jewels, Verve Candles, Elvie and Co, Mymala Bikes, Bondi smokehouse, Byron Bay Olives, gluten-free Paddy the Baker, Brooklyn Boy Bagels, Savannah Estate wines and Mason Cafe Bakery. For hot food, try Soffrito Paella, East Blue seafood and Gnocchi Gnocchi Brothers.
At the Ultimate Easter Market EQ, beauty from Alaya body and LILIPANI, jewellery from Alrok, Arye Official and Cora, pet accessories from Lunaco Designs, hats from Perez,
candles from Scent Studio and hot food from our regulars including Ottoman Gozlome, Pho Bay noodle and Mojo Picon.
The Ultimate Easter Market EQ will also coincide with the Sydney Family Easter Show, which will be held on the historic EQ Show Ring. This event brings rides, showbags and Easter fun to Moore Park.
Anderson said Cambridge Markets was keen to provide a rounded family experience for all visitors, including family fun and great food.
“We are finding that the world food component of our markets is becoming incredibly popular,” says Anderson. “People come to markets these days as much for the food as the shopping and we really enjoy being able to provide a wide spectrum of different foods and cuisines for customers. At these markets you’ll find everything from coffee to gozleme, vegan food, juices, burgers, noodles and plenty more.”
The two markets will be followed by the Pittwater Autumn Market to be held at Winnererremy Bay, Mona Vale on Sunday April 30, 10am-3pm.
