* Eat Make Grow Markets *
The talented team at The Design Collective have announced a new open-air twilight food and produce market. The first Eat Make Grow Markets will be held on April 15 (Easter Saturday), and is set to become a regular seasonal event. The market site is located in The Sunland Group’s The Lakes Residences in Mermaid Waters (you know, the giant 42-hectare site where Bermuda Street meets Hooker Boulevard), which will become a significant urban landmark for the Gold Coast. Part of the masterplanned community will be a leisure/lifestyle retail village called The Lanes, featuring a market square, retail spaces and dining venues, which is due for completion in 2021. So, to pave the way for what’s to come in a few years time, The Lanes site will transform into regular foodie hub, with the Eat Make Grow markets to feature food stalls and trucks, a farmers market and makers market (so locals can buy fresh produce by night) plus live cooking demonstrations using local produce, crafts markets, artist displays, live music and family-friendly entertainment. We’re pretty excited for this one. We’ll keep you posted with the finer details for the first market on April 15.
