Good news for fresh food shoppers at Shalom Markets

Shalom Markets
Shalom Markets' fruit, vegetable and local food product stalls will continue

After closure last Sunday, Shalom Markets organisers have decided to resume operation of their fruit, vegetable and local food product stalls.

Shalom College Principal Dan McMahon said there was a huge need for fresh food.

“We appreciate that the Shalom Markets are a very important source of cheaper and fresher food in Bundaberg particularly for those who need that service most,” he said.

“Access to fresh food will be increasingly important to the Bundaberg community. 

“It is also a service to the farmers in our region who need a relatively easy outlet for their produce.”

Only fresh food stalls will be operating – fruit, vegetables and local food products. 

No other food stalls will be operating – barbecue, tuckshop etc.

Mr McMahon said that hygiene and social distancing protocols will be observed.

“We only anticipate having about 25 stalls at the markets so we will have a lot of space between stalls to allow very adequate social distancing. 

“Market shoppers come over the course of several hours which will reduce the number of people on site at any one time.

“There are toilets with handwashing facilities located behind the tuckshop at the markets.”

Shalom Markets are held 6am til 12 noon on Sundays at Shalom College, Fitzgerald Street, Bundaberg.

The running of Shalom Markets will be reviewed weekly until further notice.
