Redcliffe Jetty Markets is expanding to include corporate stalls, demonstration areas, food trucks and youth activation stations to interest the young and young at heart.

Redcliffe Jetty Markets director of operations, Matthew Harris said the expansion will be gradual to incorporate more activities, food and fun for market visitors.

“We’re excited about the opportunity to grow as a business and provide an avenue for other local businesses to flourish as well,” Matthew said.

“While not forgetting our heritage or our stature in the community, we’re excited to move forward with Redcliffe.

“Winning the market category of Triple M’s Brisbane’s Best Award last year reinforced our vision to grow and become the best market in Australia.

“With the expansion, we will be incorporating corporate stalls, demonstration areas, food trucks and youth activation stations.

“We want to provide a platform for people to visit that will give them options for whatever they’re looking for.

“At the end of the day we know we wouldn’t be where we are today without our local and regular
visitors. We have grown with them and hope to continually do so moving forward.

“By expanding we don’t want to lose our community identity, we want to offer continuous platforms for everyone to experience new concepts, stalls and people by incorporating cooking demonstrations, fitness activities, plant maintenance demonstrations and youth activation spaces for everyone to get involved,” Matthew said.

The expansion will begin on April 8 and be a rolled out over the next 12 to 18 months to build on the current successful layout.

There will be a designated small food truck area with a rotating schedule; an area for live demonstrations like cooking, plant maintenance and emergency services; community spaces including youth spaces and street art areas; corporate areas that support recreational lifestyle choices like 4x4, camping and caravan displays; more market stalls; a children’s area with activities or a petting zoo; and possibly car exhibits and small shows like hosting the Corvette Club or classic Australian muscle cars.
