Time Out Melbourne

This event has finished

Craft workshops, scavenger hunts and potato people abound during the winter holidays

We love the Queen Vic Market for the fresh food, the arts and crafts and the joy of the hunt – and soon, so will your kids.

Little Marketeers: Busy Hands. The folks at Sweetpea Cuisine are fully aware of the endless fun to be had with a potato, a pikelet and a few tasty additions. Kids will create their own potato friend and pikelet snowman, then take them home along with some winter recipes to try. Bottom of L Shed. 11am-1.30pm. Free. Thu Jul 3 & Thu Jul 10.

Kids Craft Workshops. What’s inside a craft cottage? Well, anything you want, really: Edith from Timeless Treasures will bring the paper, paint and glue and kids will bring their imaginations. String Bean Alley. 10am & noon. $8. Jul 4-6, Jul 11-13.

Little Marketeers Winter Wonders Scavenger Hunt. If only regular shopping lists could be this exciting. Chaperoned by a guide, kids will search for winter produce, clothes and special goodies for the chance to win a special prize. String Bean Alley. 10.30am, 11.30am & 12.30pm. Free. Sun Jul 6, Sun Jul 13.

Itty Bitty Book Van Story Times. Enid the vintage caravan has some pretty marvellous stories to tell. For the first time, this travelling bookshop will stop off at the market, where kids can browse the shelves of children’s books and hear stories read aloud. String Bean Alley. 10am-1pm. Free. Sat Jul 12.
