The Gap Farmers’ Market Closes Its Door For Good

Sad news for the weekend regulars. After almost four years, The Gap Farmers’ Market has permanently closed.

The market organisers blame the tough economic environment, which has led them to shut down the market. The family-friendly community market is held every Sunday at Hilder Road State School.

Offering local produce from local farmers, the market really did start off well. However, the organisers had a hard time keeping it up for years due to the economic changes. They have observed that most people have been budgeting very carefully, hence affecting their sales and the market overall.

They also blame the huge supermarket chains around the area that can keep their prices low.

Still, the organisers are still determined to continue the popular Sunset Sounds music festival this year. The festival had a successful run last December.
