CHENNAI: Weekends for some are their leisure days, with no work attachments tagged onto them, while for the rest, it’s a day kept aside for shopping. Well, what if there is an event happening this Sunday that can cater to the needs of both? Adara Chennai and Style Centre by Jupiter Events present the Sunday Market, an exciting exhibition featuring an exclusive lineup of homegrown brands. From luxurious silk sarees and beauty products to unique jewellery, designer clothes, and recyclable items, this market offers everything under one roof. Set to take place this weekend, it promises to be a treasure trove of fresh produce, artisanal crafts, delectable foods, and unique finds, ensuring a delightful experience for all.

“It’s essentially a neighbourhood market aimed at supporting local businesses, women entrepreneurs, new startups, and homegrown brands,” explains Hamsa, one of the curators of this event. With approximately 60 brands participating in this one-day market, there’s a plethora of intriguing artefacts to discover, notes the curator, who, alongside Biju Jayadevan, is bringing this event to life. Different stalls will cater to various needs; for instance, jewellery enthusiasts can explore brands like Aabaranam and Inside Art. Those seeking comfortable yet trendy outfits can peruse stalls by Vitanka, Darzi, and more. And for those inclined towards sustainable products, Kamalam should be a must-visit stop. “If saris are your passion, then you simply must explore Venkatraman Thari, a collection of Chettinad cotton saris curated by Venkatraman, a national artisan,” Hamsa suggests.

“Since there are a lot of exhibitions concentrating only on high-end designers, we want to support the new, small-scale, and homegrown brands and give them a platform to connect so that they also get encouraged, seeing people like them doing different business in different genres and different lines,” says Hamsa talking about the intention behind organising such an event. Beyond the array of produce, the Sunday Market will also spotlight the creativity and craftsmanship of local artisans. Discover these unique pieces that can make for ideal gifts or charming additions to your home, starting at Rs 100.

Make your way to the Sunday Market, where it’s not just about shopping but about community engagement with something for everyone. By attending, you’ll not only discover unique finds but also support artisans and local entrepreneurs, thus contributing to the sustainability of our community’s economy and vibrant culture. Whether you’re seeking your weekly shopping fun, hunting for unique gifts, or simply yearning for a day out with loved ones, set aside this Sunday for the Sunday Market.

The Sunday Market will be held on June 2 from 10 am to 8 pm at Abirami Chidambaram Community Hall, Kotturpuram.
