Pullenvale Hall is the centre of the Pullenvale community, and The Curious Caravan is a local institution. Known widely for the quality of their coffee, they set up in the grounds of the Hall every weekday morning to brew coffee. If you're in the area and in need of caffeine, keep an eye out for the pink caravan!
On Saturday the 24th of August, The Curious Caravan together with The Essential Community is hosting a pop-up market at Pullenvale Hall.
There'll be many stalls there, all with interesting food, handicrafts, homewares and products to promote and sustain wellness.
Julia's Pantry is a local business producing a wide range of baked goods, jams and preserves. There will be a lot of tempting wares on available for purchase on the day, so make sure that you get there early. You can also visit her website for more information on her products, as well as recipes and her newsletters.
Seremban Living is a homeware supplier run by passionate travellers. If you've travelled widely, you'll likely recognise some of the influences on their style and be quite taken by some of the products they'll be showing off on the day. They have a wide and eclectic range of decoration pieces, furniture, manchester, cushions and blankets. Check out their website for more information.
Rani's Cuisine is a cooking school and catering company specialising in authentic Indian and Mauritian cuisine. Absolutely delicious and well-known around Brisbane, Rani's food comes straight from her heart and heritage. Rani will be showcasing her range of curry spices and pastes at the markets, and will be on hand to answer questions about her cooking school. More information can be found on her site.
Melanie Lee is a small business owner who started The Essential Community after seeing first-hand how essential oils helped her family cope with a sudden change to a colder climate. Being inspired, she started making her own blends of oils to promote healthy living and freedom from chemical cleaning products. She'll be at the markets to display some of her products, and tell you a little bit more about her business and ethos.
Beyond these fantastic provedores and purveyors, there will be some music, as well as some great people mingling in that lovely Saturday morning vibe. You know, the caffeine's just starting to kick in, and you realise there's almost two full days before you have to worry about work.
So make the time to come and enjoy a great start to the weekend!
