MarketPlace held at the Hall Grounds, Bribie Island Road in the centre of Ningi is a successful community initiative hosted by the Lions Club of Sandstone Point. The MarketPlace has a fantastic variety of locally produced goods for sale.
There are art and craft, bric ‘a’ brac, a sausage sizzle, including egg & bacon muffins, plants & nursery, recreational gear, fresh fruit & veg, gourmet produce, baked cakes and biscuits, alternative medicine & natural products, secondhand goods – and much, much more! The MarketPlace is held on the first Saturday of every month between 7 am and midday.
However, the next market, which will be a Christmas market will open for extended hours from 7 am to 2 pm to give market-goers more time to pick up some great Christmas bargains and hang about so the kids can meet Santa. Yes, Santa is coming to MarketPlace, so bring the kids and be part of the Christmas celebrations.
He’ll also be handing out a lolly bag or two thanks to Simone Wilson, State Member for Pumicestone. According to Eric Banham, Sandstone Point Lion’s MarketPlace coordinator “Our Christmas MarketPlace is shaping up to be the best market yet with lots of Christmas fun for everyone, apart from the great community feel and village atmosphere it’s a great place to meet up.
You can enjoy a bacon and egg muffin brekky, cooked perfectly by one of our Sandstone Point Lions, relax over a barista-made coffee from the ‘Coffee Man’ and to top it off stroll around MarketPlace and pick up a bargain or two at one of the many market outlets.” This is also a way you can support your community.
So, come along, follow the signs to MarketPlace, Ningi and we’ll see you there! If you’re interested in doing your bit for the community, but not quite sure how.
