Food, wine and handicrafts will be in full swing at the upcoming twilight market on March 18, bringing together producers and harvesters to showcase the products of the year to tourists and residents. Griffith’s tourism team has worked hard to create a market as part of the “Festival of the Place” and the Summer Night Foundation, run by the NSW state government. The Summer Night Foundation is a state government program that offers up to $ 15,000 to local councils for use in free activations or events that “enliven the public space.” “In this market, we will have a wide range of kiosks, from jewelry and handicrafts, local flowers and products to beverages, oils and condiments. We will have something for everyone,” said Mirella Gidalin, tourism manager. “Some local favorites will be on display, including Mirrool Cottage with its homemade crackers, TLC Bath Products with soap and bath products, local honey products from Pullen’s Honey, Cocoparra Downs showcasing their homemade floral arrangements, and more.” Mayor Doug Carran said the market would be a great opportunity for locals and visitors to support the local economy. “COVID has hit the regions hard, and events like Griffith’s Twilight Market are a fantastic way to show support to our local small business operators,” said Councilor Curran. “Glad to see so many kiosks registered, and I encourage you to bring the whole family to Memorial Park and enjoy a casual evening while supporting local operators.” READ MORE Ms. Gidalin added: “We used this as an opportunity to work on a key action from our tourism plan for 2021-24 to encourage the formation of CBD seasonal markets, so we are very excited and believe they will be well supported.” “The market will be a great evening for families and groups of all ages and is just one of many activities already planned this fall,” she said.
