I did something fun and a little bit different last Saturday night; I hosted a stall at the West End Twilight Markets. Held every Saturday evening from 4-9pm these markets promote a vision of sustain, engage and create and I think they do just that, by providing a wonderful variety of stalls and entertainment.
Held in a shed (great for wet weather emergencies) with entry points on both Wilson and Merivale Streets these markets really do achieve a great sense of community through the friendly atmosphere created by the hosts. Supported by great music, great food and great stalls the markets attracted the diverse and laid back crowd that has become synonymous with West End. Busy before and after dinner time there was a constant stream of happy people visiting the market and stopping to browse the stalls and stay awhile to enjoy the tunes and tasty food.
The market stalls are diverse and comprise a selection of vintage clothes and collectables, new fashions, handmade art and craft styling’s from local artists topped off by a fabulous array of food with a masseuse and psychic healer thrown in for good measure. I loved it, though I think my favourite part of the market was the people, everyone was so friendly; stall holders and shoppers alike that I can’t wait to return next Saturday.
So why don’t you head down to the West End Twilight Markets next Saturday, I am sure you will enjoy it!
