Something exciting has been brewing for at the end of my street for some time now, and on Friday night the Collingwood People's Market was finally unveiled! Well, kind of. The official grand opening was actually held on Saturday, but they decided to do a bit of a trial run on the Friday night and I happened to catch wind of it. Anything described as 'big ass' has to be worth a look, right?
Previously this space was a nothing but a big, dirty eyesore of a car park, but has since been transformed into a spacious and inviting community area which will play host to a variety of food, drink, live music, local artists and much much more.
Friday night was pretty light on with what was available, but it was only a test run, and I can already tell this is going to be THE place to hang this summer. Highly suggest you head on down to Collingwood and check it out!
The market will be open Thursday through Sunday until April 2013. More details on opening hours and events can be found at www.peoplesmarket.com.au
