Council to host interim Friday market

Wollongong City Council will host an interim produce and creative market this Friday in Crown Street Mall.

Given the current operator’s decision to not operate this week, Council is inviting existing Friday market stallholders to participate in the interim market. An expression of interest form is available on Council’s website.

The incoming licensee is not scheduled to commence the new Friday Forage until Friday 7 October.

Wollongong City Lord Mayor Councillor Gordon Bradbery OAM said Council is providing an interim solution for existing stallholders and patrons.

“Being aware of community concerns, I asked that an interim market be considered during the transition from the current operator to the new licensee,” he said.

“It is for this week only due to the current operators leaving a week early. The new operators will be in place next Friday 7 October.”

“We anticipate a mix of stallholders and live entertainment. Existing Friday stallholders are encouraged to visit Council’s website to complete an application form.”
