On Saturday 5th October Edith Street in the Wynnum central shopping district will transform into a street market – the WynnumCentral art/craft/vintage/retro market.
The market will be in the road itself, which will be closed off to traffic from the junction with Bay Terrace down to just east of the Coles car park entrance, and will have a focus on art, craft, vintage and retro, a theme that fits right in with the eclectic collection of specialty traders that Wynnum is known for.
Many shops in Wynnum will be extending their opening hours on the day and some will have special offers for marketgoers. Visitors will be given a map of the market area, showing where WynnumCentral retailers are located, including some who are off the main Edith Street shopping strip. The map will feature a ‘treasure hunt’ with a $150 shopping voucher prize, where you’ll need to go into a number of the retailers to pick up the clues.
The market on 5th October is the first of what is hoped will be a range of events held in the Wynnum shopping district at the weekend, to draw visitors in from near and far.
We’re also planning a special event to ‘kick off’ the market on the morning – watch this space!
The market will run from 9am to 4pm and the road will be closed to vehicle traffic from 8:30am to 4:30pm.
