Check out the creative talents at the Creative Markets
One thing that has grown over the past number of years are the amount of markets that have popped up all over Australia.

So what do I think that makes a market a stand-out one from the rest?

Plenty of variety.

Quality products for sale.

Quality food venders.

Activities for the kids to do.

Entertainment.

Community involvement.

Regular continuity.

Not overly priced stalls for hire.

Helping out not for profit organisations.

The Creative Markets would be a great place to stop off at if you are heading north to Brisbane or the Gold Coast as Tudor Park PCYC Community Recreation Centre is about 2 minutes off the Logan Motorway. All you need to do is take the Drews Rd exit and turn right and you are there.

Or you could take the M1 and get off at the Clarkes Rd exit just past the Hyperdome (over the overpass) and then turn left at Pauls Petrol Station.

If you are not quite sure where this is you can, click here for a map location.

Maybe you have some wares that you would like to display and where looking for somewhere to go. If so you should check out the stall prices as they are not to dear. You too could join the growing list of creative artists and vendors that are finding the Creative Markets too hard to resist.
