Foodie market on menu
A gourmet producers’ market showcasing the region’s best products is on the table for Busselton.
The Busselton Chamber of Commerce and Industry is in talks with the City of Busselton to develop the markets, which would be held in the central business district and sell a range of food and artisan products.
BCCI chief executive Jodie Richards said the chamber had been working to activate the CBD and markets would be a way for local shop-front businesses to attract more customers and for smaller businesses to have an opportunity to sell their products to the public.
“I am trying to encourage business to open on Sundays; however, they are citing issues such as there not being enough foot traffic and the cost of paying penalty rates,” she said.
Ms Richards said the chamber was hoping to hold the markets on either Prince Street on a weekend or in Mitchell Park on a smaller scale. The first trial of the markets is expected to happen in March.
