Summer Gin Market

We’ve had many gin markets to signify the seasons throughout the year, but can you believe we’ve never held one dedicated only to summer? Well…we’re going to right that wrong in 2020 and launching our first ever Summer Gin Market!

So together with some of our distillery friends, we’ll be putting together over 10 market stalls on show, where you can meet some of the makers in person and find out all about their products (some of which are making their Gin Market debut!).

We’re expecting another sell-out weekend, so are urging people to snare themselves a spot early in Melbourne’s original and longest running Gin Market series. 

DATE: Saturday 1st February 2020 & Sunday 2nd February 2020

WHERE: The Craft & Co – 390 Smith St, Collingwood

PRICE: $15 (includes FREE tastings at all market stalls) and gives you access to one session.

Ticketed sessions are available throughout the weekend:

Saturday 1st February Sessions:

  • Session 1: 11am to 1pm
  • Session 2: 1:30pm to 3:30pm
  • Session 3: 4pm to 6pm

Sunday 2nd February Sessions:

There’s currently no allocation for walk-ins on the day.

Don’t forget – you can also have a feed or a drink in The Craft & Co’s eatery & bar downstairs throughout the day too and bookings are recommended.

Expect a riot at Canberra’s original game-changing dining space, as GOMA chef Matt Blackwell rolls into town for this one-night-only Good Food Month presented by Citi dining event at Monster Kitchen and Bar.

Tikaram joins Good Food Month to share a culture-clashing menu with Canberra at a special two-night event (Friday 13 March and Saturday 14 March) at the award-winning Malaysian-inspired Lanterne Rooms. Tikaram, a former Good Food Guide Young Chef of the Year winner, earned early recognition during stints at Sydney kitchens Bentley and Tetsuya’s, then as head chef of the now-closed but much-loved Longrain.

Guided by award-winning chef Ben Willis, this year’s round of young chefs will be serving up a feast you won’t forget. The full line up of talented young chefs will be announced soon. With four courses including wine and beer, this is a rare chance to meet the chefs before they gain their inevitable hats.

If the future is female, Alanna Sapwell is leading the way for chefs in Australia, and this is your chance to see her in action.
