Stock up for Christmas at the upcoming Mumma's Nest Markets with up to 50 stalls selling local goods at the Civic Centre this month.
Organiser Hannah Jacobs said the event would be held on Friday 18 and 19 November, with something for the whole family to enjoy.
“This event will be held over two days to give our Bundaberg community plenty of opportunity to shop and support small local businesses,” she said.
“Our Friday evening market will run from 5.30 pm to 8.30 pm and reopen for Saturday 8 am to 1 pm.
“We have stall holders who have handmade earrings, candles, homeware, clothing, children's items and accessories, bag makers, hats, knick-knacks – lots of things that would be perfect for end of year teacher presents and getting your Christmas shopping sorted.
“Don't forget the food – we'll have a coffee cart, gelato, donuts, cupcakes, and some savoury options too.”
The Mayor's Christmas Cheer Appeal baubles will also be available at the event, with funds going toward providing food hampers to those in need this festive season.
Hannah said it had been three years since the last market was held and she was looking forward to welcoming the community and local businesses once more.
“Mumma's Nest Markets have always been an event looked forward to by many in Bundaberg,” she said.
“Having been unable to hold our market since Christmas 2019 due to COVID, we are so excited to bring our Christmas markets back for 2022.
“We love seeing our wonderful stall holders and giving some the opportunity to have a mini-shop to be able to promote their business and sell their items.
“We also love giving our customers the chance to shop for something more unique than what's available at the larger shops, and exposing them to new businesses they may not have heard of before while supporting local.”
