JULATTEN was abuzz with the opening of the new Sunday afternoon FAIRMARKET initiative at Geraghty Park Hall recently.
People from Cowbay to Cairns travelled to attend the grand opening recently with a welcome and ribbon cutting ceremony conducted by Mareeba Mayor Angela Toppin.
Live music, tea, coffee, cake and games were shared by all, everyone enjoyed the relaxed and vibrant atmosphere.
Local produce, honey, artisan bread, plants, books, toys, clothes and art were just a few of the things that were brought by the community to share, swap and sell.
FAIRMARKET will continue Sunday afternoons through March from 2-5pm and the team are looking for more people who want to join at a grass roots level to grow the special community event.
The organisers are hoping future markets will attract different kinds of activities, demonstrations and collaborations.
