Home Markets came to Kibble Park last weekend, as part of the Central Coast Council’s Social Spaces campaign.
Central Coast Creative Hub director Luka Vockins, who hosted the May 29 event, described it as a huge success.
“It was a wonderful showcase of the Central Coast’s creative businesses, and it shows the resilience of the local people and their willingness to bring handmade, quality products to the public,” she said.
As a Home Markets Community Coordinator, Vockins took the opportunity to showcase several Home Markets Home Stalls, allowing the Sunday crowd to enjoy a diverse range of home-made arts, crafts and other products designed and made by central coast local talent.
There were also live creative demonstrations in the Parkhouse space, along with Bath Bomb & Rainbow Bath Salt workshops run by Lisa Turner of AromaShak, a Kariong resident who was recently nominated for the Australian People’s Choice Rural Business Awards.
Lisa Frost-Foster, a local Mosaic artist who ran a stall at the event ,described it as a great day of networking and meeting some lovely Home Market business owners.
Vockins will host another event at Kibble’s Park’s Parkhouse in October again showcasing Home Markets home stalls.
That event will also be supported by Central Coast Council in conjunction with its Social Spaces campaign.
