Woden Community Service hosted a Sustainability Market at the Woden Town Centre as part of the Woden Experiment on Friday 24 May 2019.
Stallholders included the Canberra Cloth Bums, SEE-Change Woden, The Food Co-Op, Life Interwoven, Fresk Skincare, Melissa’s hug-a-bowl, Yangoora Close, Nancy Chuccs Nursery, Sahaja Yoga Meditation, Lisa’s Retro Clothing, Perfect ॐ, Canberra City Farm and or very own The Little Pantry.
Local musicians Rob Aspinall and Kate Lyons performed acoustic music on the day, with Tikka Stand delighting the community with Indian street food.
Greg, a local Woden Resident, commented on the difference in the space, “the market caught my attention, it is very inviting, and it is providing interest and something to do, it used to be quite boring.”
Alexine, a stallholder from Perfect ॐ, commented that it was a “Good day, with lots of new people to talk to. It is [like] a new area, with a completely new audience. It is a really nice space.”
With stallholders and the community buzzing with market fever, the main comment from the community was ‘will there be another market?’.
