TIME TO TEST THE MARKET
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.
