Get to know us

The Market Folk is a curated design market operating out of some of Brisbane's best lifestyle precincts/villages. Founded in 2015 we have worked with over 600 like-minded small businesses, welcomed thousands of incredible shoppers, saved hundreds of kgs of clothing from landfill at our rack sales, supported dozens of local musicians and provided exciting new workshop spaces to creative hosts. 

At our events you can expect to find Brisbane's best market stalls through our competitive application process. We have a wide range of stall categories that are tailored to suit many demographics within our partnered venues.

Our success and expansion has come from connecting the maker to shoppers in brand new settings across Brisbane, something not previously done on our scale by a single market operator before! Traditionally markets are set in one spot & that's it! The Market Folk's operating model means many communities and precincts can enjoy regular creative gatherings - dining, shopping and connecting all in the one place. We take the guess work out of hosting markets for our partnered venues!

The Market Folk would like to acknowledge the traditional owners of the land in which our events take place on - The Turrbal and Yugara people. On behalf of our community of small businesses we want to pay our respects to the elders past, present and emerging.
