The Caboolture Town Square Markets are back and will reopen next week.
From May 4 the popular markets, off Hasking St, return on the first and third Wednesdays of each month, from 10am-2pm.
Stalls will have everything for workers, residents and visitors with food offerings such as smoky brats, steamed dumplings, sticky satay chicken, iced tea and much more.
Also hand-sewn fashions and accessories, fresh flowers, bespoke jewellery and giftware … just in time for Mother’s Day.
The move comes at the start of Caboolture Made, a campaign to showcase businesses, community groups and residents by “shouting” about goods and services in the region.
Mark Power, Markets Co-ordinator for Goodwill Projects, said the weather played a major part in the decision to reopen now.
“With the heat and rain here, we have learned not to do anything at the start of the year,” Mr Power said, “it always seems to rain until Easter.
“We will be utilising the first four market activations to gauge the response from the community and give it every chance to succeed.
“If it beds down over that period, we hope to go to the end of the year.”
Mr Power said there would be a “focus on entertainment” to encourage people to “come down, switch off” and enjoy the occasion.
The markets are run by Goodwill Projects, in collaboration with Moreton Bay Regional Council and Unitywater with food trucks and live music.
It first opened in Caboolture Town Square last October and ran through to December 15, finishing with a six-hour Christmas special.
Caboolture Made will #shoutitout, sharing stories and success on Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn as well as Moreton Daily, 101.5FM and Hot91.
The business community will then be encouraged to support and share the stories to celebrate the Caboolture region and dispel myths and misconceptions.
Members of the public are urged to follow Caboolture Made on Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn sharing posts and positive stories.
The campaign is an initiative of Moreton Bay Regional Council, supported by BPW Caboolture and the Greater Caboolture Chamber of Commerce.
