Posted September 05, 2018 09:00:00 The Village Market is a market of about 25 stalls, with the aim of being an art and community hub in the middle of Melbourne’s CBD.

Located in the back of the Carlton Village shopping centre, the market has a lot of different vendors selling everything from home made art to artisanal cheeses, jams and jellies.

Market owners David and Lisa Brown opened the market last year and they have expanded the space into a second market space, this time with a new market board.

David Brown said the new market has added to the vibrancy of the shopping centre and they wanted to do more to keep the community in the neighbourhood.

“We were surprised when we opened that there was such a response, we knew there was something special about the market.

We thought it would be a good opportunity to bring the community together,” he said.

He said the market is a perfect fit for the community, and it will offer a wide range of art, crafts, home goods, and other produce.

The market has also been busy with visitors, and this year is a very popular year.

“We’ve had people from all around Australia, it’s always a good time,” he told News.

David said they wanted the market to become a hub for people to come to and shop and for the neighbourhood to keep a place for everyone.

Market owner Lisa Brown said it’s been a great success so far.

“I think it’s a really good opportunity for us to get the community out into the community and be a part of it,” she said.

She said there are always new stalls to come on, and they’ve even started selling locally produced goods.

“If we can keep the market going for as long as we can, then it’s really important to have that community presence,” she added.

She said the farmers market was also a great opportunity for the local community.

“The market is really unique and the farmers have really embraced it, so it’s good to have something like that around the corner,” she explained.

Ms Brown said that the community was very supportive of the market, and she would like to see more farmers coming to the market for their crops.

“It’s a very good time to be a farmer,” she laughed.

“Every year we have a new crop of potatoes, which are pretty good, so we’re happy with the harvest so far,” she continued.

More to come.
