What started as a simple concept of bringing people together & trying to build a stronger sense of community has quickly turned into a ‘not to be missed’ event.
The monthly community markets has grown from a casual bacon and egg roll on a Sunday morning to a ‘one stop shop’ providing locals and visitors with a range of fresh & locally made produce and is a great spot for people to catch up with friends, meet new people or a chance for visitors to enjoy some local hospitality.
Tables & chairs are set up on the back deck & garden area so that friends, young families and dog owners can sit and enjoy a relaxed breakfast/brunch. The small ‘market’ also boasts a number of stalls including pastries & bread from Burnt Honey Bakery; fresh fruit, vegetables, eggs and honey from Mountain Pride Farm; Mediterranean Foods from Jesus Ate Falafel and Vietnamese takeaway from Ivy Do Kitchen. To further add to the community vibe, a group of local volunteers have started creating amazing jams, pickles and chutneys made from local produce. These have proven hugely popular and fly out the door every month.
