Thai-inspired flea markets are becoming more and more ubiquitous these days, and Artbox could arguably be regarded as the one that started it all.

Thanks to the massive success of its first instalment back in 2017, similar events such as CMYK, Let’s Go Jalan Jalan! and Twilight: Flea & Feast (which is happening this weekend, btw) have blessed us with a constant stream of hipster food and knick knacks we probably don’t need but buy anyway.

Considering that the 2018 edition was back in June, however, we’re probably going to have to wait more than a few next months for the OG market to return to our shores.

…or do we?

Hipster Food Heaven

Taking place over two weekends in January (the 11th-13th and 18th-20th, to be exact) at Downtown East, Eatbox is described by its organisers as a “boutique edition of Artbox”.

We’re not sure what that means exactly, but judging by the name we’re going to go on a limb and say that there’ll be a bigger emphasis on food (which is the most important part, tbh).

What we do know is that the market is set to feature more than 50 local and regional F&B brands, and will no doubt include hipster food mainstays like rainbow toast, poke bowls and milk tea served in comically large buckets.

Of course, food won’t be the only thing to look forward to – resident EATMEPOPTART DJ’s weelikeme and KIDG will be on the decks to provide their signature brand of alternative party music (Mr. Brightside, anyone?), and there’ll be a host of interactive art murals to get your Instagram on as well.

Not much else has been revealed at this point, but we’ll keep you updated as more information comes in.

Until then, you might want to start thinking of excuses for why your new year’s resolution to get fit will have to be postponed again.
