Launching this Sunday, Greville Village Market will turn the Chapel Street precinct into an open-air market full of emerging designers and creative people.
Being held on the first and third Sunday of every month, the market’s spring schedule is full of DIY workshops as well as design names and collaborations. Try your hand at making your own piñata or have your first up-cycling experience with succulent cork planters.
DJs will be there to set the vibe with some tunes and stalls will be set up to encourage meandering, pottering and communal interaction. Peruse hand-made furniture, accessories, clothes, shoes, artwork and trinkets at your leisure.
Look out for stannard-inc – a Sydney-based accessories label which uses crystals, leather, copper, feathers and brass to create beautiful hand-made jewellery. Or Takeawai, which uses Melbourne’s landscapes, nature and beach culture to inspire crockery and home-wares.
The first day of spring is set to pull out the big guns weather-wise, with 25 degrees and sunshine for the launch of this new venture. Get some vitamin D back into those bodies with a wander through the fresh air. Melbourne food favourites like Ladro, Chez Olivier, Babble and FOG will be there to help fill those grumbling tummies after the shopping is done.

It almost sounds like the premise of a reality TV show: pile a bunch of artists in a bus for seven days, send them across Mexico and see what happens.
