Mamma's Market is the brainchild of sisters Amy Ruediger and Vanessa Portors, who have 8 children under the age of 12 between them. Focussed on a niche market they have created a shopping experience which successfully caters to mothers and families.
Alternating bi-monthly between Buderim on the Sunshine Coast and Mudgeereba on the Gold Coast on the first Saturday of each month, these crafty markets aim to create an atmosphere conducive to a fun, family friendly outing.
With a focus on high quality, handmade and unique items for pregnancy, mums, babies, children and the family, one can expect to find a variety of creative and stylish things for the home and family here. This is the place to shop if you're looking for something fresh and funky, such as fashion items from Beatnik Baby and Two Vintage Chicks.
Mamma's Market also offers access to unique and thoughtful services such as baby hand and foot casts by Impressionable Kids and photographic portraits by ShellBell's Photography ,or Inspired by Michelle Photography; both of which make for fantastic gifts.
In addition to a wide range of fabulous stalls, Mamma's Market creates a festive atmosphere with live entertainment, free children's activities and gourmet food stalls. Get there early to nab a gourmet cupcake by the Design-a-Cupcake Party company.
