40 stall holders at the Twilight Markets
Encouraging “shop local this Christmas” is the theme behind the inaugural Green Skills Twilight Markets. After extensive tours of UK Christmas twilight markets in 2018, and knowing how creative the great southern community is, Green Skills Albany Manager, Anne Sparrow, came back to Albany inspired to provide opportunity for local and regional, small, home-based and micro-businesses to increase trade in the lead up to Christmas gift giving and keeping funds circulating in our economy. Sustainable communities need sustainable economies and these small and micro-business keep money in our community.
The Twilight Markets provides a wider range of options for Christmas shoppers to support local businesses for their gifts. With over 40 stalls available across both nights, there is something for everyone. This includes a huge range of hand-crafted decorations and gifts for all ages including clothing, art, food, woodwork, mirror art, plants, decorative pieces, baskets, toys, jewellery, chocolates, functional items for house and home, beauty products, face painting, experience vouchers for wacky golf and more.
There will also be an outdoor street food alfresco area set up in the car-park providing afternoon tea, snacks, dinner and live music all night.
With two nights available shoppers have an option to leave the loved ones at home for one of the nights and shop in peace.
