A Market for Glenferrie
The Glenferrie Traders Association (GTA) is planning on launching the Park Street commencing 2 May 2020.
The market will take place 7am-12pm every Saturday from May on Glenferrie's Park Street, Hawthorn with the purpose of "provid[ing] fresh, affordable produce to Glenferrie and surrounds, while building a sense of community in the Glenferrie area". The GTA aims to maintain a minimum of 90% stalls selling fresh produce, 70% of which would offer fresh fruit and vegetables. Each Park Street Market will also be host to one community stall which is "available at no cost to not-for-profit, fair-trade and social enterprise groups" in the interest of "local community groups and matters strictly pertaining to the City of Boroondara community". The GTA has taken a specific initiative to restrict use of plastics at the event.
