As you may know, we have cancelled the market planned for this coming Saturday 4th October, as we did not have enough stalls booked in by the booking deadline last Saturday. We apologise if you were looking forward to coming along, and we are planning on launching a bigger and better monthly Saturday event in Wynnum as from November, subject to Brisbane City Council approval.
Thank you if you took part in our survey about the market (we had a big response) – and, even though we had a lot of positive comments about the market, we have taken several of your comments and suggestions into account in planning the new event.
At this point the plan is still to close off Edith Street, but to hold the market in the afternoon and early evening. This will avoid the heat of the middle of the day and also allow families whose children are involved in sport in the morning to come along. There will also be a greater food component and those Wynnum retailers who would like to support the event are welcome to stay open longer on market days.
We may also move the day – at this point the second Saturday of the month is the most likely choice.
As ever, feel free to let us know what you think of the new plans in the comments below…
