After announcing their closure this February, the iconic markets at Glebe Public School will continue as usual with a new tenant set to take over. Typically held on Saturday, the markets have drawn nearly 10,000 visitors every weekend and have been a mainstay in the inner-west suburb of Glebe, catering to a range of marketgoers over the last three decades.
The last day of trading was supposed to be Saturday, February 25 but now Organic Food Markets has stepped in and confirmed that it would run the markets until a permanent operator takes over.
“As custodians of the Markets at Glebe Public School, we plan to continue the operation of the market under current practices that have been so popular with the inner west community for the past 30 years,” Organic Food Markets said in a statement.
The markets will resume normal trading from March 11.
Weekend Markets at Glebe Public School
The markets first started back in 1992 and have since become a much-loved institution around Sydney. Instead of trudging through shopping centers, head to this buzzy spot in the city to get all your shopping done under one roof. You’ll find everything from fresh produce to food, homewares, beauty, craft and designer products. However, the real crowd-puller has been their giant collection of vintage clothes, records, books, old-school cameras and accessories. The markets also host live entertainment and food stalls on-site.
