For most of its 70 years, the building was a service station and mechanical workshop, and as you'll see, we never could manage to get the grease out of the floorboards. The land at the back was an overgrown swamp and we are indebted to those intrepid souls who carved out the lake and terraced the many growing gardens now present. The purpose in creating the Marketplace was to convert an eyesore; a blight on the town's landscape, into a beautiful space where people could meet and exchange creative ideas, crafts and whatever was growing in their garden.
Our goal is to use in the kitchen what is grown locally in season and over the past 3 years the gardens have become productive to the stage where we can do that, with plenty left over to sell in our fresh produce section. Fruits and vegetables are living entities whose purpose is to be magnificent and to nourish us. Our role in the garden is to nurture them so that they can reach their full potential. That means no chemical sprays and using fertilisers that mineralise the soil.
We look forward to sharing this with you soon at The Maleny Marketplace! (more)
