I am a freelance writer and diversional therapist, living in Brisbane's North West. I write for Weekend Notes, Must do Brisbane and Starts at Sixty. Visit my blogs at babybloomin.wordpress.com and brisbanetripster.wordpress.com.
As the sun goes down on the winter solstice, the fin will begin at the Winter Twilight Markets at The Gap. Presented by The Gap Farmers' Market and an initiative of The Gap Residents' Association, this not-for-profit event will contribute to local schools, Karuna Hospice, Ashgrove Meals on Wheels and MICAH.
Come along to what promises to be a great family event, with over 60 stalls to tempt your tastebuds. From fresh, local produce to warming street food, there will be something for everyone. Kids will enjoy joining in with craft activities, the animal farm and face painting whilst the grown ups will be able to relax to the sounds of Brisbane's favourites Sarah Beck, Meredith, Alex Bell and Steve Grady.
Bring your market trolley and fill it with farm-direct produce, much of which is organic, free range, grass fed and spray free. Don't forget a blanket to relax on, a beanie and maybe a scarf to keep toasty warm. There will be plenty of parking, both onsite and in the street. Entry to the market is free.
