West End fi­nale

North West Telegraph - - Lifestyle - Robert Dougherty

The food, crafts and a newly opened bar area were all the rage at Port Hed­land’s fi­nal West End Mar­kets of 2018.

Not many Hed­land res­i­dents could re­sist the mar­kets’ pop­u­lar food court show­cas­ing deli-style prod­uct makers, pro­duc­ers, hobby farm­ers and lo­cal ven­dors in the carpark off Wedge Street in Port Hed­land. The cre­ative tal­ent of the North West was well and truly on dis­play with a di­verse range of hand­made crafts and de­signs, and art­works by lo­cal ar­ti­sans and Abo­rig­i­nal art cen­tres.

At­ten­dees were also swept up in the op­por­tu­nity to view this year’s Hed­land Art Awards en­trants at the Port Hed­land Court­house Gallery.

The crowd spilled over into the new bar area that had comfy couches and high ta­bles be­tween the gallery and Hed­land’s new WEB Busi­ness Hub.
