On the first Saturday of every month (except January), the village green at Crystal Waters comes alive with a vibrant local community market.
There is live music and lots of kids action, delicious cafes, great locally grown coffee, organic wood-fired sourdough, organic fruit and veg, croissants, seedlings and herbs, local hand made arts and crafts, local preserves and honey, second-hand clothes and items, fair trade products to support charities, healing modalities and more.
I love the relaxed community vibe, the feeling that the kids are safe to go and roam, the possibilities for the kids to be creative and have their own stall, or perform music. It is such an important part of our community's way of staying connected with each other and others from the surrounding areas.
I am usually there at the Ethos Foundation stall giving out information about permaculture and nature kids programs at the village, and offering fun art/craft activities for the kids. If you come along, come and say hello.
