TIME TO TEST THE MAR­KET

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western Opinion -

THE carpark owned by Clare­mont Coun­cil next to Typika cof­fee roast­ers could be an even greater space host­ing a small, monthly gourmet farm­ers’ mar­ket on Sun­days.

The weekly buy-and-sell mar­ket at the Melville shop­ping cen­tre is a good model of how lo­ca­tion is the real ad­van­tage for any com­mu­nity event.

Many Sun­day morn­ing driv­ers drop in for a “quick look” at those mar­kets on Can­ning High­way.

While farm­ers’ mar­kets op­er­ate in Clare­mont, they have been out­side the town cen­tre.

Any trial of a mar­ket in the carpark would ben­e­fit from the pass­ing Stir­ling traf­fic see­ing the stalls.

Other Clare­mont town cen­tre busi­nesses could ben­e­fit from the flow-on trade at a quiet time of the week.

They could also set up their own stalls.
