Vibrant markets set to become community hub

A new farmers market has been announced for the region, allowing residents of a burgeoning master-planned community to have greater access to fresh produce and locally made items.

Expected to open mid-year, the Aura Farmers Market at Caloundra South will feature up to 80 market stalls every Saturday from 7am to noon.

The Caloundra Chamber of Commerce, which has run markets in Caloundra for 22 years, will be the operator for the custom-built site at Aura. The chamber also will operate the Aura Twilight Market, featuring a bar, food trucks and entertainment from 4-8pm on the first Friday of each month.

Stockland Aura project director Josh Sondergeld says the Aura markets will be more than places to buy food and wares.

“They’ll be vibrant community spaces where residents can catch up and support regional producers,” Mr Sondergeld says.

“We’re excited to see the positive impact the Aura Farmers Market will have on our local economy, empowering small-scale producers, supporting local Aura home-based businesses and fostering a culture of sustainability.”

The Aura Farmers Market be located on Central Avenue near the Aura Sales Centre and Display Village.
