I remember submitting my first proposal in to Council back in 2008 to hold a market in Maylands. After many hiccups, bits of red tape and various other obstacles, I finally got some markets approved in December 2013! Now here we are with the recently approved Season 3 of these markets!
They are a much loved aspect of our local community, with our attendance regularly being 1500 over the course of the evening every Saturday night in Summer!
Markets, to me, are not about the vendors (though we do curate to ensure quality). Markets are about creating safe and vibrant spaces for local communities to gather and interact. I think we can put a great big tick on MHM achieving this :)
