Get your sustainable goods at these markets
These Summer X Salt Markets will be held at both Scarborough and Brighton Beaches. There will be varied vendors here, and they term themselves as having "local surf and salty lifestyle stalls"

These markets are different from most others, in that they are all about sustainability, our environment, and being a plastic-free event. Summer X Salt will be held every second Saturday.

The organisers are bringing a whole series of these surf, salty lifestyle and sustainability-focused community markets back to these two beaches. This will be an excellent place to find those unique gifts for Christmas presents, or just to spoil yourself.

There will be things for a surf and salty lifestyle; community and sustainability, food trucks, healthy living, great live music and beach vibes! This will all give you an excuse to get "salty".

Some of the things on offer at these markets include:
Local surf and salty lifestyle vendor stalls
Local ocean artisans and fabulous designers
Ocean friendly products
Non-profit vendors
Local surfboard shapers and supboards
Single-use plastic-free initiatives
Delicious food trucks
Coffee and juice carts
Local salty musicians
Family activities

About the Ideals of These Markets
These markets were on firstly in Margaret River, and some of the aims and ideals of these markets are:

To raise awareness about reducing single-use plastic, and thereby the impact these have on our oceans
To create meaningful connections amongst the salty lifestyle community as well as local industry
To provide a platform for local salty business, organisations and other projects in order to join up with the community and gain exposure
To empower local communities to support local people, and value sustainability

The Summer X Salt Markets are 100% single-use plastic-free​, and all the other waste products are either composted or recycled.

The markets are hosted by Sandswell Inc., who are a "surf-for-social-good" nonprofit organisation, who aim to create positive social and environmental impact through surfing.

They are always quite passionate about these Summer X Salt Markets however they are even more interested in the good impact that they can bring about by having these markets.

As these markets will be on every second Saturday, if you miss one, you will still have plenty of others to go to!
