Allow yourself some time to breathe and entertain the kids by dropping them off to get crafty at the kids’ workshops, run by the Kids Nature Club. The upcoming market on December 7 features ocean painting, while the market on December 21 will offer sessions on creating gumnut Christmas ornaments.

If you’d love to take your dog for a spin while shopping and strolling along the shoreline, the markets welcome you. Let your furry friend splash around and cool off with a relaxing paddle amongst the glimmering waves, while letting the waves lap at your feet to ward off the heat.
Best of all, the markets are a single-use plastic-free event and abide by a waste management system to reduce waste. You are welcome to bring your own bags to contain your shopping and cutlery, cups, plates and bowls to add to the sustainability effort.
Dive into the fun at Clarko Reserve, Trigg, from 9am - 1pm. The last two markets for the rest of the year are on December 7 and 21, so take the chance to finish off the year with a shopping trip by the beach and Instagram worthy shots!
