It’s less than three months to Christmas, and markets are wonderful way to bring local produce, local craft and recycled treasures under your tree. So visit our markets in October….

As Picasso once said “It took me four years to paint like Raphael but a lifetime to paint like a child,”…and so the ‘Young Entrepreneurs’ will be setting up easels for young artists again this month at the Montville Growers and Makers market to provide the opportunity for young ‘Picassos’ to explore their innate creativity.

This month our theme at the Young Artist Corner will be portraiture – portraiture of self or of others.  Local artists Candice Herne and Judith Sinnamon will be present to top up palettes and marvel at the works in progress, 7.30am-midday. Enquiries:

Crystal Waters Market says thank you, and see you Saturday

by Ally Bing

Like all farmer’s markets, the Crystal Waters Market is a miraculous creation where the sum of each person’s small contribution collectively manifests into something magical. The Crystal Waters Market atmosphere is beautiful and joyous, and is spun simply from selfless collaboration and positive, personal incentive.

Residents volunteer their time into set-up and set-down and into keeping the playground and Village Green maintained, all so that they might share their home with the greater Maleny community.

Stallholders attend to provide quality products, and to be able to enjoy themselves while earning a living.In return, the Crystal Waters Market is blessed with 30-40 stallholders selling delicious foods and beverages; stunning handmade creations; organic produce, herbs and seedlings; certified massage, and so much more.

Dancers, painters and musicians share their expression with market-goers every first Saturday of the month. Because of these artists, the Crystal Waters Market is a place of marvel and joy.

Set in a landscape of shade-giving branches and elegant bamboo, who knows what surprise will be around the next corner?

Stick around on the Village Green for the DJed Music Event, ‘The Chillsesh’, which starts by playing oldies and rock ‘n’ roll in the late afternoon, and grooves into electronica later in the evening. Beer and cider for sale.

The Crystal Waters Market happens the first Saturday of every month but January. The next is on Saturday, October 7. Learn more on our “Crystal Waters Market” Facebook page and at Thank you for your small role in our big day out, and see you on Saturday!
