The Green Marquee, the coast’s newest monthly eco market, launches this weekend
Market lovers and appreciators of all-things green, eco-friendly and sustainable – this is for you. The Green Marquee, the Gold Coast’s newest eco market, will officially launch in Currumbin Valley this Saturday May 13.
The vibrant new market will be held at The Eco Village (location location) in Currumbin Valley on the second Saturday of every month from 7:00 am to 1:00 pm. So, what’s in store? Well, aside from its enviable Currumbin Valley location, you’ll find everything from homewares, fashion, art and beauty, plus food trucks, coffee, live music and kids entertainment – but this isn’t your usual weekend market. The Green Marquee focuses on showcasing environmentally friendly businesses with a shine toward products that are handmade, natural, eco-friendly, sustainable, recycled and locally made.
The new Currumbin eco market is the brainchild of The Eco Village residents Claire Dryden and Samuel McCulloch, who set out to create the monthly market to offer Gold Coast residents a one-stop shop for eco-friendly products and homewares. You can expect everything from recycled furniture and organic baby skin care, to hanging plants and sustainable jewellery. There will also be food trucks, or you can pick yourself a locally made picnic hamper to nibble on. The market will operate alongside the established Ground Grocer Co-op, which sells fresh fruit and vegetables from its premises within The Eco Village. Jump over here to follow The Green Marquee.
