The first Twilight Hub Market at Food Connect was so great, we're going to do it again this month!
At that last market night, over $4,000 was diverted from the industrialised, anonymous economy into our creative, local and relational economy that rewards talented artisans and makers.
How cool is that?
So join us for another great evening of ethical shopping for Christmas, good food and cruisy tunes. Lots of fun for friends, family and kids.
New Stall holders are invited to apply here.
If you're re-registering from our last market, please do so here.
MORE INFORMATION ON OUR MARKET
The Food Connect Foundation proudly invites the Brisbane community to buy really local at a series of Twilight Hub Markets this year.
Featuring our incredible food makers operating out of our Community Kitchen as well as other local and talented sellers, with food, gifts and music, the next Twilight Hub Market will be held from 3pm on Thursday, 30 November, to give shoppers an ethical alternative to their normal Thursday night Christmas shopping.
We have a great list of local businesses who will demonstrate radical transparency in their labelling and sourcing policies when offering visitors beautiful Christmas gifts at Food Connect’s warehouse in Salisbury.
Many of these businesses make and grow the products they sell in South East Queensland, keeping local farmers and makers in business and local people in jobs. It just makes good economic sense.
“By investing your spending dollars with locally-owned businesses, you create four times the economic impact within that local community,” says Chair of the Food Connect Foundation, Robert Pekin.
“You hear many people say they support local, but at our Christmas Markets you’ll find out the real difference between what is advertised as local, and what the real alternative looks like. We’re asking shoppers to bring their questions about the origin of products and how they’re made.”
"The beauty of really buying locally," he said, "is that you are contributing to the health and viability of your local community. That means local jobs, local investment, local relationships, and long term resilience."
