Get braided, organic, pumped and crafty — there's lots to do this long Vesak Day weekend

4th Kranji Countryside Farmer's Market
There are lots going on at Kranji's edge this weekend: artisanal food, local produce, live music, and workshops. Learn some DIY tricks at the spice and fruit infusion workshop and be sure to pick up The Hunters' pistachio butter by Kitchenette; one of their bestsellers. For the kids, there's also an animal-petting corner. Stay on for a sunset party featuring local pop rock band The Summer State and DJ Chris.

The Local People #T8DECK Art Market
It seems the dingier the venue, the hipper the crowd. From rooftops to carparks, the new 'it' place to be seen is Deck; a stack of containers that work as an alternative event space. Hosted by art market aficionados The Local People, they've brought together a slew of lifestyle vendors and musicians for a retail experience like no other. Look out for Jaime Wong's acoustic folk-pop tunes and pick up bagels from TwoMen Bagel House.
