The Launch of ‘Markets in May’

Thursday May 1, 2014 marks the exciting launch of ‘Markets in May,’ a month long celebration honoring the importance of markets in our community!

The initiave which is being driven by The Local Market Guide  ( an online directory dedicated to showcasing the sensational markets surrounding our city, has been encouraging market operators to organise activities and programs such as farmer and artisan discussions, cooking demos, art exhibitions, sustainability workshops, market tours, performances and free children’s activities, alongside their regular markets.

To launch ‘Markets in May’ – The Local Market Guide is creating a free pop up market in the heart of the CBD May 1 in Martin Place at 12 midday May.

The event will feature the best of handpicked traders in quality food produce and lifestyle products from various local markets. It is a chance for the busy CBD audience to take a break and enjoy gourmet treats while interacting with the local artisans that produced them! It will also feature market style entertainment and alfresco dining!

This week we reached out to the media about the event by hand delivering these beautiful gift baskets with samples of the locally produced goods by said farmers and artisans involved in the launch (see below). Suffice to say, the goodie bags have been extremely well received!

While the free market day is a sampling event only, we hope that it encourages the public to support and seek out various markets around our city while simultaneously aligning local markets to promote their value to both shoppers and the community.
