Held on the final weekend of every month, the Fuyoh Art Bazaar (F.A.B) is housed atop the sunlit floor of the Publika Mall and is the resident art and artisan market hosted by Publika in their specially planned in-house creative space that is aptly named Art Row.
Being indoors and completely sheltered under the naturally-lit skylight ceiling of the Publika Mall means that this is a market where vendors and customers alike can have no fear of our perennially choppy weather.
So, come rain or shine, F.A.B can be found buzzing with the activity of market-goers seeking curios, geekery, artisan beauty goods, handcrafted jewellery and handmade plush toys and passionate stallholders cum artisans lovingly promoting their wares.
I stumbled across this April edition of F.A.B by accident and had such a great time capturing some of the market buzz that I thought I’d share it here with you on my blog – in case, like me, you harbour a case of bazaar addiction of your own.
So, just to let you know, it’s going to be a very pic-heavy post from here onwards…
As an honest-to-goodness proper essential oils company, Accentz stocks only pure and natural essential oils.
The range is impressively wide and the oils are all plant-extracted and concentrated.
The Black Sesame Seed Oil by Accentz comes from these naturally wholesome and distinctly nutty sesame seeds
Featuring a huge range of adorable curios in a throwback to fairy tales and garden tea parties, Air Souvenir has all manner of knick knacks to keep and store life’s little treasures.
THE CHARMS PARLOUR
Quirky pendants and vintage-style charms are the order of the day at The Charms Parlour.

LISSA GREEN STUDIO
Owls might be big right now thanks to Japanese folklore and Harry Potter. This next vendor makes cute handmade owls of all sizes and colours. They’re really cute and you can even pick up a set to name after every member of your family.
THE BUBBLE LAB
Trading in handmade soaps by the slice or loaf, loofahs and lava rocks, The Bubble Lab, makes bath time indulgent yet practical.
They even have a soap that acts as a mosquito repellent called Bug-Away. Something that’s very handy for this country.
EARTH CARE SOAPS
Earth Care Soaps makes pretty beauty treats that look and smell almost good enough to eat.
These rustic iLpuro soaps are made from a rich blend of natural oils, herbs or clay.

Well, I hope you enjoyed this little jaunt with me at F.A.B April and here’s an end note to wrap up your little visit with me.
The booths featured here do not even represent half the sellers at this bazaar and there were many more I didn’t get a chance to write about so I hope you’ll get a chance to explore this little monthly art and artisan showcase for yourself one day.
The vendors may change at each edition of the Fuyoh Art Bazzar so if you’re wanting to visit the market for any of the sellers featured here, you are advised to check directly with them via their respective Facebook pages regarding matters of attendance or for any other queries.
Publika has just waved goodbye to May’s edition of the F.A.B but I hope this recap of the vendor mix at the April event will whet your appetite for the June edition.
For our friends down south, the Johor chapter of the Fuyoh Art Bazaar has begun making an appearance at the Mall of Medini, Nusajaya!
And, if art just isn’t your thing but food speaks volumes, Publika is now also running a once-monthly foodie market at Art Row every first Tuesday of the month.
But if you’re a bit of a bazaar junkie like me, you could always visit both 😉
