New twi­light mar­kets are ready to be­gin

Isis Town and Country - - News -

BACK in April, Childers res­i­dent Nathan Friedrich put a post on the Childers Face­book Fo­rum.

“Just throw­ing it out there, has there ever been or would it be pos­si­ble for the town to have a farm­ers mar­ket (pos­si­bly twi­light) in the main street say once a month?” Mr Friedrich said.

“We have so much to of­fer in the area, though we seem to buy im­ported pro­duce more than sup­port­ing lo­cal.”

“Can Childers be­come a Eu­mundi mar­ket equiv­a­lent if we get it right?

“It may be pipe dream­ing, though this town has so much more to of­fer.”

The post re­ceived 54 likes and 75 com­ments, and a small group of en­thu­si­as­tic vol­un­teers formed a com­mit­tee which met ev­ery fort­night de­ter­mined to put ideas into ac­tion.

Fast-for­ward to Novem­ber when the sec­re­tary of the Childers Twi­light Mar­kets com­mit­tee posted on the own Face­book page: “Childers Twi­light Mar­kets are of­fi­cial – we have just re­ceived ap­proval from coun­cil.”

The first food, wine and pro­duce mar­kets will be on Fri­day, Novem­ber 27, from 5-9pm.

If you are in­ter­ested in be­com­ing a stall holder and haven’t al­ready reg­is­tered your in­ter­est, email childer­st­wi­light­mar­ket@gmail.com

Childers Twi­light Mar­kets are to be held in Mil­len­nium Park – a per­fect leafy area with a vil­lage am­biance.

It’s a great spot to drop in af­ter work on a Fri­day evening.

Meet up with friends and sam­ple a drop of Childers wine, stock up on pro­duce and stroll through his­toric Childers by twi­light.

For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion, con­tact childer­st­wi­light­mar­ket@gmail.com or phone 0409 544 416
