Lollipop Markets, Adelaide, Australia

Lollipop Markets is a brand new and exciting market for Adelaide. The market showcases unique, boutique and handmade items (or of limited supply) for expecting parents, babies, children, Mums and Dads. The markets will be held regularly in Adelaide and stall holders come from all over Australia. Each stall holder is handpicked by the Lollipop Markets team of work at home Mums (WAHMs).

The first ever market was held in November 2010 and you can check out their facebook page for market dates in 2011.  The next market is being held on Sunday February 20th from 10am to 3pm at The Shores Function Complex, Military Road, West Beach, Adelaide, South Australia.

The three ladies who started this fantastic market (Kaye, Bree and Nicole) have been dreaming about running a gorgeous handmade, unique and boutique market for some time. The are all Mums who live in Adelaide and just adore handmade and try to steer away from commercialised, mainstream items (AMEN!).

They identified a need for a handmade market ‘destination’ for South Australia and wanted to create a destination for families to visit, outfit their kids, find toys, food goods, party ideas and gifts. They wanted their markets to be accessible to all businesses, whether established or new.  In terms of what makes Lollipop Markets different, it is the only handmade, unique and boutique market in SA that is run by Adelaide WAHMs for other WAHMs.   The three ladies also run businesses in their own right, so they are obviously extremely busy!

Thank you so much to Kaye, Bree & Nicole for providing us with this information and the photos.  If you live in Adelaide (or are visiting) make sure you check out the next Lollipop Markets!  Pop over to The Lollipop Market's facebook page for plenty of photos of stall holders market and lots more information.
