Love Your Local Markets are back for a new year and they promise to be better than ever.
As we start to enter the cooler months, Love Your Local Markets are opening for a new year with lots of new stalls and your old favourites, so come along with family, friends (and the dog as they are dog friendly) and see what the markets have to offer.
Friday, 13 February is at Cannon Hill Bowls Club, Cannon Hill. Here you can also enjoy barefoot bowling as well as the usual Love Your Local treats. With drinks also being served in the club, you can make a night of it.
Friday, 20 February returns to Morningside Panthers Club, Hawthorne. More great stalls, more delicious food, more live music. All in all, another easy, relaxed night out for the whole family and a perfect end to a busy week.
The month concludes on Friday, 27 February at Norman Park Bowls Club, Norman Park. Another opportunity to try out barefoot bowling as well as enjoy a cold drink in great surroundings with your family and friends.
All of the market venues have been chosen for the space they offer the market goers with green open space for your children to run free and tire themselves out ready for bed.
There are some wonderful additions that you won't find elsewhere, such as the Mini Makers stalls, where the children run the show and sell their own creations. A fabulous way for children to learn about running their own business and I'm always amazed by their creativity.
Love Your Local Markets really is a lovely way to start your weekend with yum food, great entertainment and shopping. As Director, Rebecca Lawrence says 'You're local, we're local, let's meet up!'. I couldn't agree more!
