Residents are being encouraged to support local businesses when the Makers and Finders Market reopens this Saturday in the newly renovated Knox Park and MArts Precinct in Murwillumbah.
It comes as easing COVID-19 restrictions enable more facilities to reopen their doors. its closure at the end of March due to Covid-19, and the resultant void, meant many of the shire’s artisans were left without a place to sell their work.
As we're starting to come out of restrictions now, we're really wanting people to get back in touch with their local makers and producers - so if it's local artist, local florist, local grower or your local jam maker - it's really about reconnecting.
It’s not been an easy time and they are very keen to be back to serve you. we're excited to be able to provide this again and have the community come out. Please support them and ‘shop local’ to help them recover and return the market to a place where it’s a delight to visit, shop and socialise.
The outdoor area of the market is set in the beautiful and family friendly Knox Park and is a great place to find local vendors and artisans selling fresh produce, baked goods, prepared food, crafts, gifts and pre-loved goods.
Check out Knox Park's new look as the latest upgrade to Murwillumbah's main park is open to the public.
The new adventure playground and Youth Precinct in Knox Park, Murwillumbah has something to entertain and delight kids of all ages.
Across the street, inside a classic art deco building, you will find the M-Arts Precinct – a vibrant place where artists and art lovers can come together over coffee, drinks and food. Discover useful and beautiful handmade creations, chat to resident ceramicists, illustrators and sculptors with live studio demos in their crafts throughout the day.
