Fun Family Market
I happened to be on the Yorke Peninsula last weekend and was lucky enough to time my trip perfectly to attend the Kooky Kidz Market. This market is unique in SA because it is held in both a regional and Adelaide location. While I attended the January, Moonta market, held at the Moonta Area School, you have an opportunity to attend the next Kooky Kidz Market held on February 10th at the Greenwith Community Centre.
The Moonta Markets are held during school holidays and are in January, March, October and December.
The Greenwith Markets are in February and October
Kooky Kidz Markets also have expos and the best place to get up to date information on the location of these is to check their website.
The market is professionally run with a wide assortment of stalls showcasing some of the state's best craftspeople. While many of the stalls have a female and children's focus there are a smattering of stalls selling items of interest for the men and grandparents in the family and some side shows which generally keep the dads and energetic boys busy too.
I really like the hands on kids zone where the kids can have their face painted and do sand art as well as bounce on the bouncy castles and join in the singing and dancing performances.
There are always fantastic stalls at the market including: Jewellery - Miss Meliss, The Jewellery Case Candles - Joles Candles and Gifts Fashions (ladies and children) - Love 2 Style, TeaPea Design Hair Accessories - Schooled Up Hair Accessories and Little Blossoms Hair Accessories Delicious food - Cakes and Chocolates by Donna Wooden Toys - Doc's Wood Den
At the Moonta Market the School gymnasium was full of stalls and there were also a heap of stalls as well as food and side shows outside. All in all it was a great family day out with something to attract the attention of everyone in the family. While you will find some stalls represented at both markets there is also some local flavour at the Moonta market.
I know where I will be on February 10th, perhaps I will see you there.
