"There's the great open-air format and a wonderful community vibe that harks back to an era where market squares were a communal meeting place. It's also a good way of getting to know the local growers and producers."
"The markets form an adjunct to the Gateway Hotel's offerings and are another way of enhancing the different experiences available, whether you're a local, staying in town or passing through, which has the potential to flow-on to other businesses and the local economy."
It's a sentiment echoed by the Shire of Manjimup, which is undergoing a rejuvenation thanks to the State Government's Royalties for Regions SuperTowns project.
"The funding has provided the financial backing needed to make projects happen and has already positioned the town to attract investment, support local businesses, improve the liveability and increase tourism in the region," Shire President Wade DeCampo said.
Market stalls are available at $5 for each stall. The Gateway Markets Manjimup at the Gateway Hotel, Lot 1 Case Street (corner South Western Highway), Manjimup, every Sunday morning.
