Creative mini-market bounces into Byron


 Byron Bay’s arts industrial estate will come alive on the 30th of May with a creative mini market in Acacia Street, with over 30 stalls of local arts, crafts, up-cycled, re-cycled – and who knows even bi-cycles for sale…

The new monthly market, Peddle & Hawk takes place across a number of art galleries and studios on Acacia Street,  and will operate on the last Saturday of every month.  As well as the stalls with their vintage, home-grown and home-made produce and wares, there will be entertainment from local musicians, live art, children’s activities, art workshops and an open day for surrounding galleries.
“Were inviting local artists, entrepreneurs, creators, gardeners, and foodies to be a part of a dynamic and accessible ‘small stall’ marketplace,” says event curator Techa Beaumont. “Plus Kulchajam’s food cooperative will be open to encourage people to try all the amazing local produce we stock.”
Supporting local community enterprise is something that comes naturally to local event curators and social entrepreneurs Techa Beaumont and Alice Moffett who are hosting the community event which was launched to coincide with the second birthday of the CO*OP Kulcha food cooperative,  which enables co-op members to sell produce from their gardens and kitchens.
“People everywhere are creating and making things themselves and just need a supportive platform to get noticed,” says Alice Moffett. “We think Peddle & Hawk is just the place for creatives to  get started, meet one another and enjoy the opportunity to sell locally” said Alice.
Riding the wave of the mini-market, suitcase rummage movement, Peddle & Hawk will operate from 10am-3pm with a range of treats and street foods and special offerings of organic masala dosas, raw treats and special cold brew coffee from the Barefoot Roaster.
