Every month, a car park behind a bank on West End’s Boundary St transforms into a vibrant marketplace with live music, sizzling food, a bar and of course, an eclectic array of stalls.
On market night you can find vintage fashion, handmade instruments, quirky homewares, zines, homemade sweets, vinyl records, plants and even pet chickens.

The lively West End Twilight Markets, touting themselves as more jamboree (of the hip, not scout variety) than market, kick off inside a grungy brick warehouse on Saturdays at 4. Here, under the cobwebbed eaves a merry band of local recyclers, designers, craftspeople, musos, artists and food peddlers provide ethical shopping, food, art and entertainment to those who drop by....

I'm an inner-city rambler who's happy to share my best finds with you. My writing turns up in the local street press, magazines, and more.

Published January 23rd 2012

Back in November, I wrote an advance piece about the opening of the new twilight markets at West End. The markets ran for a little while, then took a Christmas break. When they reopened last Saturday for 2012, I was there for my first visit, ready to sample their delights. And delightful they were, with the markets living up to their promise of eclectic 'treasures, tucker and performance'....

In the treasures category, I found plenty of retro and indie fashion, including the gorgeous vintage-inspired stylings of local label Alice Nightingale (designed by Alice Veivers). I also spotted vintage kids' clothes in mint condition for very reasonable prices, and stalls selling t-shirts, jewellery and smooth vinyl of the musical variety.

New Bris Zine Distro @ Twilight

December 19, 2011

My sister took me along to the new Twilight markets held in Brisbane’s West End, every Saturday night. Hesitant at first, as I’m sick of going to markets that promote themselves as hand-made, organic and local… while everything is mass-produced and made in China junk. During the day, I heard an interview with one of the coordinators of the Markets on Triple zed. He mentioned zines and vegan treats! Now I was excited! 

Do It Together is a new zine distro run by Erica and Lena. “We’re keen to stock zines with substance”.  Do It Together has been running for the past six weeks and a regular at the Twilight Markets (Full article).

Last night my friend Celeste and I went to check out the West End Twilight Markets, which opened yesterday and will now run every Saturday night.

They were delightful. It was much smaller than other markets (like the Finders Keepers markets), but that’s perhaps part of why I enjoyed it so much. It was super laid back, easy to walk around, and had more of a Brisbane community feel. Also, importantly, the prices were right. Everything was affordable for someone like me (on a student’s wage), which is a far cry from the prices I’ve seen at some other markets.... (Full article)

We happened upon the West End Twilight Markets last Saturday night. It was a flying visit but I'm glad we stopped in because they were lovely. Not too big but lots of good stuff.

TWILIGHT FAIR

 ...A reclaimed hangar on the corner of Boundary and Wilson St at West End is home for a pocket-sized mixed evening market opening next month.

West End Twilight Markets will focus on organic and fair trade.

Organisers describe it as a space where makers, collectors, providores, performers, foragers, and sticky-beaks can come together and make merry. From 4pm-9pm, starting Saturday November 12.

The corner of Wilson and Boundary Streets in West End may look like a mundane bank car park by day, but come Saturday afternoon, the area undergoes a bespoke metamorphosis to become something truly special: the West End Twilight Markets.

The seductive aroma of organic coffee wafts onto the street, luring unwitting sticky beaks inside. Embracing treasures new and recycled, handmade, local and organic, this market may be small but oozes with artisanal love. The clambake of vintage clothing and wares, live entertainment and exotic food all coo the same love for sustainability and hums with community spirit. (FULL ARTICLE)

Review from Jen L.

Published 14 November, 2011. 

It was only a matter of time before West End had it's very own twilight market dedicated to all things cool, eclectic and creative. It houses young fledging designers, artists and the like. It draws in the fashion crowd, the arty folk and those who just want to experience a little more culture in this city.

My favourite thing about this market is the fact that it is a twilight market, luring crowds during a romantic sunset... Why wouldn't you feel the love at a time like this?

Published on November 6, 2011. 

A new weekly market with a difference will open in West End on Saturday 12 November from 4-9pm.

Brisbane seems to be in a market frenzy at the moment, with new ventures springing up left, right and centre. But the soon-to-be-launched West End Twilight Markets are aiming to stand out from the crowd, with an original approach that seems set to distinguish them from other Brisbane markets.

For a start, they'll be held in an old hangar on the corner of Boundary and Wilson streets, just off West End's main drag. (The site is behind the ANZ Bank and opposite the Hi-Fi, for those who know the area.) It's an unusual choice of venue, and I'll be interested to see what they do to bring this old building to life.

Food For Thought

Market Piggy (November 22)

...There’s something about markets I just can’t get enough of, especially art ones. I’ve come to the conclusion its because I find them inspirational. You catch a glimpse of the stall owners passion in the products they produce. There’s usually a lot of blood, sweat, and tears that goes in to the final product which most consumers don’t know about so can’t appreciate. I’m constantly amazed at how resourceful people can be and how art can be created from the most simplest of materials (got a beautiful pair of epoxy paper origami butterfly earrings from [email protected]n at West End twilight markets last week and LOVE them...
