Blender Lane Artist Market, 101 Franklin Street Melbourne

Fittingly located in one of Melbourne’s most recognisable street-art adorned lane ways, this market is incomparable to the other ridiculously over-crowded, stuffed kangaroo selling tourist market a few blocks up, which is fine but completely irritating. And to be frank, Blender is just much cooler.
Here you can sift through the wares of many a local painter, jeweller, fashion designer and photographer; get your palms read; chill out on a little astroturf and listen to some talented Melbourne musos and use the night as an opportunity to view the working studios of the gifted collective of resident artists.
Go independent, go local, go awesome. The vibe is always happening here at one of our favourite urban neighbourhood gems.
110 Franklin Street, City
