A new initiative by the Sandstone Point Lions is MarketPlace. MarketPlace is a community market held on the first Saturday of every month at the Hall Grounds, Bribie Island Road in the centre of Ningi. The next MarketPlace is on Saturday, 6 July – 7 am to 12 noon with easy off highway parking available. MarketPlace has a great variety of locally produced goods for sale.

There are art and craft, bric ‘a’ brac, 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!

According to Eric Banham, Sandstone Point Lion, MarketPlace co-ordinator and initiator of the idea of holding a regular market in the heart of Ningi, “MarketPlace, has a great community feel and village atmosphere, it’s a new place to hang out on the first Saturday of the month before or after kids sport, you can enjoy a Bacon and Egg muffin brekky, cooked perfectly by a Sandstone Point Lion, 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 another way in which you can support your community. So, come along, follow the signs to MarketPlace, Ningi. See you there! For more information please contact Gay Power on 0414 233 566.
