What is the Sandy Point Foodies and Artisans Market?
The Sandy Point Foodies and Artisans Market has become an much anticipated event. Held in early January each year and commencing at 4pm, it is held at the Sandy Point Community Centre. Because of COVID we are unsure when the next market will be held. We will keep you informed.
We have a wide variety of food vendors selling hot food such as Turkish, Russian, Indian and Thai food, to waffles, calamari, pizzas, nuts, ice-cream, salamis, olives, honey, preserves and drinks, including coffee.and wine tasting. From 2019 the market also includes Artisan Crafts and also wine and beer sales by the glass.
It’s a great opportunity to enjoy some great local food and convivial company in the grounds of our beautiful hall!
Proceeds from the Foodies Market are used to support projects being undertaken by the local Sandy Point community.
Sandy Point Foodies and Artisans Market: 5 Jan 2019
Thanks to all those who attended our annual Foodies and Artisans Market. We took a gamble this year and changed the date and timing of the event, added in some artisan craft stalls, provided beer and wine sales and also hired local musician, Fiona Curram to play for us – and it all worked!
We had our biggest and most fun market yet. Fantastic turnout, great atmosphere, great food and apparently our stall holders were really happy with their sales too. The weather was fortunately very kind to us as well.
We even had a rather large koala turn up to help raise money for our local wild life carer Sue Moore. The massive tin our local koala lady Jan Hallas carried around with Tony the Koala, collecting donations for Sue, was completely full by the time Jan had to depart. Tony the Koala entertained everyone, young and old, for the period of time he managed to stay inside the (hot) suit and he even scored a ride in our beach wheelchair which was on display at the market.
The winner of the Raffle was Megan Ball – she scored a beautiful hamper of local produce worth over $300. Second prize, a beautiful aerial photo of Sandy Point, went to Dot Devine and third prize, two free tickets to a Music Club event, went to Donna Henning.
Vendors of all types of food and artisan craft products are invited to set up their stalls.
