Henley Square Markets announce first Winter season

The Henley Square Markets are back supporting local this winter with arts, crafts, fashion, and handmade products.

The Make it Mine Markets at Henley Square are back for their first-ever Winter season, kicking off this Sunday, June 23rd.

“This will be our first time going through winter, normally we stop because the weather gets a bit tricky, but after last year, we thought we’d give it a go,” says Market Coordinator Ana.

“Over the past seven seasons, we’ve been in Henley. Before the square, we were opposite the Ramsgate in the car park but moved to the square a bit over a year ago. With the support of the council and our sponsors, we are really fortunate to be in that section, it’s such an iconic area for the locals, so to have the market there is a dream!”

The Make it Mine Markets are a long-running, family-friendly outdoor market. Its focus is on arts, crafts, and fashion, and it is keen on supporting local vendors and their handmade products.

“There are lots of people that make their own things and others source locally. They are all really passionate people, who want to spend time outside and share their products.

“The vendors always make time to come to our markets and support us, even if they’re busy. I love speaking to them throughout the day and seeing how they’re doing. I love seeing what’s popular and selling really well.”

Due to the fantastic location, Ana says the lack of focus on selling food is for good reason.

“There are so many fantastic food offerings in Henley, and it wouldn’t be right of us to take business from our fellow vendors. We encourage people who come down to check out the markets, to also support the permanent businesses in the area.”

Henley is packed full of fantastic cafes, restaurants and eateries, making the markets the perfect excuse to pop down and explore what’s happening in the town.

The market and the vendors behind it, bring a true family vibe to Henley Beach each time they set up for business, which is also reflected in the relaxed culture in the area.

Ana says her favourite part of the markets is being able to watch the excited new vendors share their love for their products and businesses with the community.

“We love seeing young entrepreneurs who are passionate about their businesses!”

Season eight of the Henley Square Markets will kick off this June, and will then be the last Sunday of every month, except for Sunday the 17th November. The last market for the year is on December 8th.
