There is a recycling revolution taking place at Pallet Life Gallery & Cafe
. You'll find the miniature red cottage down a narrow alley off Maleny's main drag, Maple Street. Owners, Suzi and Larry Sandfort have taken the humble wooden pallet and given it a new lease of life in the form of a fun, recycled themed cafe, art gallery, and busy weekend market scene.

Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday (8am - 3pm), the pallet themed laneway really comes to life with the Maleny Village Artisan Food Markets

Local stallholders at the Maleny Village Artisan Food Market include, Pallet Life Coffee Shack, The Live Foods Cafe, El Taco Shack, Asian Street Food, and the local community farmers' stall.

Down the back of the Maleny Village Artisan Food Market
, you can potter around the popular antique shop or even purchase some local seedlings for your vegetable patch. The main thing you'll come away with, is a new perspective on the wonders of wooden pallets and the joy of having supported the local community.
