Cornering The Markets
Local businesses, crafts, and other local goodies will be on show once again at the burgeoning Kate Street Markets, o this month.

Inspired by the well-known Redcliffe markets, the Kate Street Markets are held at Woody Point. Local businesses and residents are encouraged to get involved.

Organiser, Kylie Pipitolu, said the event was a place to give small businesses a chance to show off what they had to offer.

“The main purpose of our Kate Street Markets is to also show the locals what our little corner on the Peninsula has to offer too,” she said.

The markets are held regularly every three months, so there’s always a space for different stallholders each time.

“We are always looking for stallholders for our future events, as no two markets are the same,” Kylie said.

You don’t have to necessarily own a small business to be a part of the Kate Street Markets either — all you need is a hobby and a passion.

Locals can easily get involved, simply by having pre-loved clothes, a food trailer, or handmade-goodies.

However, Kylie said it was also a great avenue to promote your local business.

“All local businesses are encouraged to hold a stall to promote their small business amongst our beautiful shops;” she said. “We love to hear from everyone, even if you are a singer or own a dog wash trailer – everyone is welcome.”

Some of the stalls in the previous markets have included handmade bags, hair-styling stalls, food trailers, coffee stations, face painting, and live music.

Kylie said it was important to encourage Peninsula locals to visit and support their local businesses – and a small street corner marketplace was the best way to do this.
