The Glebe Multi-Cultural Market
The Glebe market is held at the Glebe Public School every Saturday. This market is the original Sydney alternative markets and if you had a feeling that the bohemian flair of Glebe had somehow diminished over the years, attending this market will put that to rest forever. Sure, many of the recycled clothing stalls have gone but they've been replaced with stalls selling the work of young designers whose products are both affordable and different. Many use their stalls to test their designs for the wider market outside. The air at the Glebe market is full of incense and the noise of beating drums keeps your pulse racing. You'll feel as if you're in South-East Asia as you walk among the stalls manned by people from Nepal, India, Indonesia and Thailand.
The Chinese Temple at Glebe
