Community Twilight Markets come to life
Words by Nadia Chapman

A seasonal celebration of local farmers and community is returning with Project Salubrious’ Twilight Markets.

The markets will be held on Saturday, November 25 at Burpengary, offering an evening of good food, entertainment and the chance to meet local farmers.

The markets are being hosted by Project Salubrious and Absorbent Minds Montessori.  

 Project Salubrious owner and head chef Kurt Lovell says after the café’s successful first birthday markets, he's looking forward to something a little different.

“There's something special about gathering on a warm Queensland evening, wandering the stalls and eating under the stars,” Kurt says.

“With the lights, music and smells of food drifting through the markets, it'll be like a relaxed, mini festival for the whole family."

Alongside live entertainment and delicious food, there will be market stalls, face painters and a jumping castle for the little ones to enjoy.

Project Salubrious Café will also be open for the first time at night, and will be running a special menu, including smoked brisket sliders. There will also be a pizza pop-up and outdoor seating.

Some of the stallholders include Plot 4504 Market Garden, Basilea Living Herbs, Joyous Jams, Mari’s Delights, White Blossom Studio and many more.

Kurt loves seeing customers get excited when they meet the farmers and realise how much they have access to locally.

Owners of Plot 4504 Market Garden will be stallholders this year and say they are excited about trying something new.

“We are excited to be venturing out from Plot4504 Market Garden to the Rowley Rd Twilight Markets with a range of our pesticide free veggies,” they say.

“This will include tomatoes, cucumbers, eggplant, radish, kale and much more. It's such a great event with a great community vibe, with lots of our local maker and grower friends."

Head along

Those who wish to attend the markets are being asked to RSVP via the Facebook page.

When: Saturday, November 25 from 4-8pm
