Local Night Markets at Southside Community Clubs
With many community clubs struggling to get patronage from demographics that may have moved on from the original neighbours, one local business has stepped up to reinvigorate the clubs and put them back on the map.
Hawthorne's Love Your Local Night Markets
has grown up to be a moveable feast of Brisbane's best street food and can be found each Friday night at one of the Southside's many community clubs. Having started out at the Morningside Panthers AFL club as a monthly market, that was Hawthorne's best kept secret, the market has grown into a moving caravan of fabulous stalls that now pulls in at several sites on the Southside each month: Morningside Panthers twice a month, Cannon Hill Bowls Club and Norman Park Bowls Club.
The itinerary now looks like this:
First Friday at Morningside Panthers in Hawthorne;
Second Friday at Cannon Hill Bowls Club;
Third Friday returning to Morningside Panthers in Hawthorne; and
Fourth Friday at Norman Park Bowls Club.
"The idea is to offer the Southside the same mix of great grub, gourmet treats and good quality stalls that you can get across the river - but without the crowds!" smiles Love Your Local Founder Rebecca Lawrence. "All our sites have a licensed bar and a great tradition of live music, so we expect people to come armed with fold up chairs and picnic rugs to relax with family and friends."
Markets run Fridays 4pm – 8.30pm on the following dates: Hawthorne November 7, Cannon Hill November 14, Hawthorne November 21, Norman Park November 28
