The launch of the first weekly growers’ market this year is close.

The groups that proposed market at Bert Wright Park are supported by the Bayswater councilors. The proposal was a subject to the City’s approval at an event hosted on the 27th of February.

After the taken decision, the group is said to submit a separate event for the City’s consideration.

These proposed markets will be every Saturday (8 am to noon). They will offer around 30 vendors with the possibility of them becoming 45. There will be free stall spaces for charity or other non-profitable community groups.

The idea behind the growers’ market is to be able to offer fresh fruit, vegetables, bread, herbs and support local businesses while there are activities for people of all ages.

The council has decided they would waive fees for the market which is a step forward for everyone involved. The fees would have cost approximately $13,000 per annum.
