Caboolture Town Square Markets look set to return in the new year.

Organisers say the three-month trial, which finishes with an extended Christmas market day on December 15, has been a success.

Goodwill Projects Managing Director Mark Power said the markets had been “really well received” by vendors and local workers.

“We are very keen to resume in the New Year (February/March) once the rain and heat settles down a bit,” Mr Power said.

Live music

“That decision will be guided by the vendors and level of support from locals post-summer.

“I think it just needed a bit of live music to bring it to life. The revolving food offering each fortnight also mean there’s something new every time.”

Mr Power was supported by Moreton Bay Regional Council Mayor Peter Flannery: “I absolutely hope to see this fantastic initiative continue.

“This has helped local micro and small businesses to access new and additional customers.

Biggest yet

“My message to Caboolture locals is – if you love it, get around it!”

The town square markets have been held fortnightly since October 6.

A special Christmas edition of the markets will be on December 15 from noon to 6pm to showcase local goods, handmade gifts and plenty of food options.

“It’s our biggest markets to date,” Mr Power said, “a great way to end the year.”
