Bowerbird, Adelaide’s premiere design market, returns to Adelaide this November. FIFTY+SA shares the South Australian designers and makers we are excited to see return or to see for the first time at the market.

Bowerbird, Adelaide’s premiere design market, returns to the Adelaide Showground from 25–27 November at the Wayville Pavilion. We’ve picked some new and returning South Australian designers and makers for you to get behind and support.

Bowerbird will get you summer ready, with over 180 designers offering products ranging from clothing, art, homewares, accessories, skincare, jewellery and pantry treats. 

Bowerbird invites people to come and meet the community of creatives gathered from across Australia and discover the story behind the brands. Learn about the spark of inspiration that created their current range or the gap in the market that led to a new business. Maybe you’ll learn about a generational family tradition or an ethical and sustainable enterprise. 

Peggy Byrne, the Director of Bowerbird, says, “What makes Bowerbird a truly special shopping experience is meeting the people who craft the products on offer. I’m really excited with our line-up as many of the brands curated in can only be seen in South Australia at Bowerbird. On top of that, we have a talented group of emerging designers joining us too.”
