We are beyond excited to announce that we have found a new home! One that feels right, ticks all of the boxes and one that we know you’ll love.
Our new home is the ENTERTAINMENT QUARTER in Moore Park!
Free entry, close to public transport, 2000 space carpark, a heap of green space, existing infrastructure to sustain events like ours, and a vision that supports the kind of community engagement we are creating, we just know that this new partnership is the change we have been ready for.
Our first market at The EQ will be Sunday 19 August from 9am-4pm and will run on the third Sunday of the month after that.
It’s been a bumpy ride and we are forever thankful to COMMUNE for hosting us over the last 3 months and are looking forward to future collaborations with them, so watch this space.
WHAT TO EXPECT
A Sydney Vegan Market of old! We're talking over 100 stalls brought to you by Sydney’s best of the best in food, produce, beverage, homewares, fashion, art, cosmetics, skincare, activism and education. All plant based, cruelty-free and vegan!
Fancy a burger, a bowl of Mac n cheese or a heavenly Acai bowl? Need some more of your favourite oil cleanser, that body scrub or the new lip colour you’ve been dying to try? Or have you been eyeing off those gorgeous ceramics, yoga mats or candles? We have you sorted!
Alongside our incredible array of stalls, we have developed a free education space called TENT Talks.
TENT Talks gives members of our community the chance to speak about the amazing work that they do! We help small business owners, activists, experts and community figures craft short talks about their passions, ideas, journeys and hopes for the future. Through TENT Talks we aim to give a platform to voices that are rarely given the opportunity to take centre stage, in order to promote diversity within and beyond SVM’s loyal attendees and stallholders.
The entertainment curated by Earthlings Collective will set the vibe for the day, where local artists and musicians get to show us their talents and we get to dance it off on the grass! We have incredible acoustic performers, pianists, and soul singers plus our resident DJs bring the beats and really make your ears happy.
To top it all off we have free yoga and pilates with Plant Based Life, face painting, and a sausage roll eating competition run by Herbisaurus!
WHAT TO BRING
Our Info Stall will have free sunscreen, smiles and affordable SVM branded cotton tote bags and insulated bottles for sale on the day so make sure you bring your hat, umbrella, a picnic rug, your reusable cutlery and straw (if you forget these they will be available from some of our stalls), your dog pal, all of your mates and an empty tummy. There are ATMs onsite but those lines can get nasty so BYO cash is recommended.
HOW TO GET TO THE EQ
Our friends at the Entertainment Quarter have everything covered, including this handy transport guide.
In order to produce this kind of event we heavily rely on the kindness, loyalty and brut strength of our volunteer team. If you’d like to join the team, please send us an applicationform and we will be in touch.
If volunteering isn’t your jam, we have donation buckets at the Info Stall and will gratefully accept a gold coin
See you on the 19th!
