An Indian bazaar with all the vibrance and colour of shopping in an Indian street will be held in Point Cook at the weekend.
Organiser Shwetali Sawant said the bazaar would include stalls selling traditional and contemporary clothing, jewellery, accessories and home decor, along with Bollywood music, henna tattoos, face-painting and food trucks.
Ms Sawant said experiencing the event would be like visiting the “buzzing street shopping of India”.
Ms Sawant said she organised the first Indian bazaar, at the Italian Sports Club of Werribee, in August, 2017.
“I used to run an online retail store and so had stalls at different markets,” she said. “I absolutely loved the vibe and family-friendly atmosphere.
“It reminded me of bazaars in India where I used to go as a little girl with my parents.
“I wanted to recreate that buzz and vibe right here in Melbourne, a bazaar where you could get all things Indian – clothing, jewellery, home decor, spices, with rocking Bollywood music going on in the background. And, of course, street food.
“Families coming together to the bazaar with a smile on their faces, that’s the best feeling in the world.”
The Indian Bazaar will run from 5.30-10pm at Point Cook Community Centre on Saturday, February 9. Entry is free.
