Market OTB is back this weekend, with more emerging retailers and retail concepts than you can shake a stick at.
Everything from fashion, to jewellery, art and furniture will be on display, alongside a bunch of local food stands. Besides eating and shopping (two of our favourite things), there’ll also be movie nights, music performances, talks, workshops, and leisure events. If you’re heading down for the fashion side of things though, here’s a list of all the labels that’ll be setting up shop.
