There’s a new Eastern suburbs market kicking off this weekend which will be a hub for designers, artists, foodies & creatives.
Market at the HUB starts this Saturday, 19th September 2020, and will operate every third Saturday of the month from 9am – 1pm.
Market at the HUB will bring together a variety of South Australian traders at the Glenunga Hub, L’Estrange Street Glenunga.
The market will offer a wide range of items for sale such as arts & crafts, plants, homewares, jewellery, fashion, eco-friendly products, local produce & unique handmade gifts. You can get that all-important morning coffee and treat your tastebuds to delicious treats from a range of food vendors, plus there will also be entertainment.
Market at the HUB is being put on by the fab folks over at the Rotary Club of Burnside and is also supported by the City of Burnside.
Proceeds from stallholder charges will be used to fund local community, and international projects focused on areas such as the environment, education, youth & community development.
The first market will support the SA Bushfire Appeal & fundraising efforts on the day will go towards supporting mental health awareness through Rotary Mental Health.
An official opening and welcome to stallholders & shoppers by the Mayor of Burnside, Anne Monceaux will take place around 10:30am.
The Rotary Club of Burnside has been involved in several worthwhile projects in the last twelve months. The club has supported multiple hay runs for farmers that are doing it tough, built habitat boxes to assist in wildlife preservation and rejuvenation after the Black Summer bushfires earlier this year & continued assistance with the construction of a school in Tanzania so children can get the education they need.
The Rotary Club of Burnside will also look to support local students in their endeavours to further their education & personal development sponsoring students on range of Rotary leadership programmes including the highly regarded National Youth Science Forum which takes place in Canberra each year.
Rotarian Tania Dalton explained the significance of this new event, “Our club, like many other not for profits has been greatly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Market at the HUB not only represents a new event for our members to be a part of, but it will also provide a much-needed fundraising opportunity in times where our regular sources of raising money have dried up. It means we can continue to support our local community & beyond.”
