Get ready to get botanical, Brisbane—West Village is hosting an unbeleafable plant market! Taking over on Sunday, 16 June, The Plant Market will be blooming with hand-made and locally grown products from plant-loving creatives.
An event dedicated to bringing together Brisbane creatives who are obsessed with all things plants, The Plant Market will have everything from indoor plants to brighten up your home or office to large established plants for your gardens and verandahs.
As well as being a paradise for picking up your newest home addition, The Plant Market is also bringing along their famous plant adoption centre, where you can leave your unloved or neglected plants at the adoption centre for someone with a greener thumb! Plant lovers can pick up a free unloved plant in the hopes they can be restored to their former verdancy!
With a line-up sure to inspire your inner garden goddess, visitors can expect potted plants as well as terrariums, kokedamas and macrame from All the Green Things, mounted ferns from The Plant Market, plant-themed gifts and kokedamas from Max and Mort, and stunning florals and succulent cuttings from Soul Pantry.
Other unmissable vendors at The Plant Market include botanical bling from September Creative, handmade ceramics from Billeta, plants and macrame from Luvia Designs, succulents from Succulent Mummas, and the cutest cactus cookies and macarons by Hansel and Gretel Cakes!
Alongside introducing you to your new favourite statement cactus, The Plant Market is also offering a range of botanical-based ticketed workshops!
