The People’s Market is back for summer 2012-13 bringing its signature “everything goes” experience to Collingwood. A blend of entertainment, retail, food, booze, workshops, yoga, art, music, and market to perfect Melbourne summertime.
More about us.
If you’re an early riser, and breakfast is more your thing (in which case, we’re impressed), we do have a Expresso Syndicate roastin’, fresh pastry sellin’ & breakfast style street food servin’ container, open from 8 AM. It’s an all day breaky service – you’re welcome. Keep posted on who sets up shop in this space through our calendar of events and FB.
Food is the focus of the PM but we do run a side market on each Saturday of the month. Offering 30 stalls, here you will find sellers of vintage, jewellery, toy dinosaur cactus plants (fo’ real), & a whole bunch of artsy, hand-made goodies. We like to keep this changing from week to week with specific themes. You can keep up to date with this through our Market page & events calendar. We do have a three retail containers that operate daily. These guys are unique, usually local, and all round nice folk, wanting to have pop-up shop spaces, to promote and sell new products in a unique setting, or magazines bringing their issue pages to life.
Containers of Modern Art, also features at the PM. Each month we have new, local artists exhibiting their works at COMA. Containers are brought to life with collective groups & individuals displaying (and selling) illustrations, sculptures, paintings, sketches, photography – the list goes on.

PLEASE BE AWARE we have a not so normal market-ess bar offering Old Mout Cider (think Boysenberry or Cranberry Lime flavours), Thunder Road Brew, fresh off the tap and a sexy selection of summer cocktails, American pop & sh sh sh shakes. When the sun starts’a simmering, so does our bar. Our booze garden is the place to be – the only one of its type in Collingwood. OPEN TILL LATE.
Annnnd finally, the PM will also offer a program of live music, so keep your eyes open for our 3 o’clock PM Sessions where we will showcase established artists performing acoustic sets. It is our intention to promote & discover some real music talent, too.
We air an open air space, but we will operate rain, hail or shine. Fear not, we do have undercover areas for the ever so wonderful Melbourne weather.
