Bohemian Rhapsody

Need a new set of duds? Dig pawing through collections of vinyl and books, finding an obscure item for the kitchen or seeing some live local music on a Saturday morning? Then head to Glebe Markets.

A short bus ride or long stroll from the city, Glebe’s Saturday markets host a spectacularly diverse set of rotating stalls that attract a motley crew of punters. You can check out the wares, soak up the atmosphere or just kick back on the grass and watch the free bands.

Clothing forms a major chunk of the goods on display, with local and imported vintage garments well represented, complemented by local designers showcasing their latest creations. Home-crafted jewellery, African drums, contemporary sculpture and eco-friendly products are among other desirables you’ll find cheek-by-jowl in the bustling stalls.

Massage practitioners are on hand if it all gets a bit much. There’s even a dedicated alley of international and organic cuisine stalls if you get peckish.

Reclining on the grass for one of the local live acts, you will likely encounter one of the many colourful regulars – perhaps shaking their hips, perhaps offering you some roasted nuts or a sip of their lassi. When you’ve done your dash with bohemia, nip out the gate onto the main strip, Glebe Point Road, where you’ll find scores of cute cafes, restaurants and pubs to help you find terra firma again. If you want to, that is.

Our favourite cafes to visit after the Glebe Markets include Blackwattle Cafe, Wedge Espresso and the ever-bustling Clipper Cafe.
