River & Wren is a country handmade market based in Wagga Wagga in country NSW, Australia.
Over the years we have developed a reputation as a vibrant market offering good quality handmade, homemade and homegrown products in a fun, happy and friendly environment. This helps us attract an overwhelming number of shoppers to each market.
This morning I woke up to the following Instagram post from the very inspiring Simone Eyles from Working Spaces HQ in Wagga Wagga.
“Being copied is not a form of flattery. It’s a sign of laziness.
If you have no imagination and creativity, don’t copy me, there’s enough room for both our awesomeness.
A trip to Sydney means different things to different people. To me, a trip to Sydney is incomplete without visiting at least one Sydney market!
Sydney markets remind me of a time when I was young and carefree and could spend my weekends traipsing around whichever market took my fancy.
The two questions that I am most often asked are:
How many people come to River & Wren? and
How much money do stall holders make at a River & Wren Market?
The first question I can’t answer with an exact number.
I feel incredibly privileged to organise a market.
River & Wren is a handmade, homemade and homegrown market and its popularity with not just our local community, but the wider region, has shown that the community not only appreciates, but supports, our local creative industry.
