The Nhulunbuy Corporation Town Hall Community Markets, is an event that runs most months throughout the year and are held in the Town Hall or Town Centre.
The Community Markets are generally held on Saturday mornings (9am-12pm) but 2018 will see an introduction of the Saturday and Sunday night Market.
It is the role of the Community Engagement Facilitator to organise the event, event activities and arrange the community host for that day.
A Host can be a Sporting Club, Community Group or Association that is a Not for Profit. The Host is responsible for setting up the Hall, collecting the stall fees, arranges a cake stall, runs the bouncy castle for the kids as well as cooks the BBQ and cleans up at the end of the event.
Community members are given the opportunity to become a Market Vendor. Each Vendor pay’s a small fee ($25) and all money raised goes to the market Host which benefits the local community or sporting group.
Market Vendors at the Community Markets sell a range of items showing the diversity of the town and can include, art and photography, homewares, jewellery, giftware and clothing.
The Food Hall, in the foyer, also attracts lots of people with the smells and tastes from the various cuisines on offer.
Vendors are pre-booked through the Community Engagement Facilitator on (08) 8939 2200.
