Market back in business

Thousands of visitors made the journey through the rolling hills of Collinsvale late last month for the highly anticipated return of the Collinsvale Market.

After entering a hiatus for the winter months, the popular market was back to hosting local stalls including handmade crafts, metal works, botanists, distillers, bakers and the fluffy cows from Heilan Coos Homestead.

Market organiser Janine Mitchell said interest was the highest it had ever been, with almost 1500 attendees supporting local makers and producers on a beautiful spring day.

“This market is special. It feels like we’re deep in the country when in fact it’s only a 20-minute drive from the city,” she said.

“This is a great opportunity to support and promote local farmers who contribute to the prosperity of the local area.

“There is something here for everyone, with a great mix of locally made and produced commodities.

“The diverse collection of stallholders and the enthusiastic local crowd creates a fantastic atmosphere that rivals any other market.”

Monthly markets will be held at the Collinsvale Memorial Hall throughout summer.
