The future of the Buninyong Village Market is currently uncertain.
The last Village Market was in February 2016, and unfortunately the future of the Market is now uncertain. Due to circumstances beyond their control, the Buninyong Good Life Festival are unable to continue running the Market.
For all of the those interested in discussing the future of the Market, a community meeting is to be held Thursday 14 April at 6pm in the Buninyong Community House at 407 Warrenheip Street.
As seen in the Buninyong Newsletter – April 2016:
35 stalls at final ‘Good Life’ market
As reported in the March edition of the News, the Village Market held on 28 February was the final market to be organised by the committee of the Good Life Festival.
Thirty five stalls were in place along the southern strip of Learmonth Street, but again the Town Hall was not available for market stalls.
The future of the market is in doubt but the Buninyong and District Community Association is investigating options.
Call to Save Village Market
The Buninyong & District Community Association (BDCA) has invited local residents, groups, school committees and other organisations to come along to a meeting to consider the future of the Buninyong Village Market.
The February 2016 market was the last one organised by the Good Life Festival (GLF).
Festival spokesperson, Lisa Cressey, said that the market had been a very good source of income for the GLF Committee, but that the work of putting each one together had been a strain for the small number of people involved.
The BDCA is keen to see the market continue. BDCA Secretary Gayle Adams said that it would be a pity if the Village Market folded permanently as it added to village life and to the sense of community here.
The meeting will be held in the Community House, 407 Warrenheip Street, Buninyong at 6.00 pm on Thursday, 14 April 2016.
