Eco Markets

 

The next Eco Market is Saturday 3 December 2022 

August Eco Market: Due to the third wave of COVID-19 being experienced across Queensland, Redlands IndigiScapes Centre has cancelled the August Eco Market to ensure the safety of the community. We hope you can join us for an even bigger Eco Market in December to support our local small businesses during the Christmas gifting season.

Enjoy open-air shopping with local small businesses offering a wide range of eco-friendly products, hand crafted goodies, sustainable giftwares and so much more. 

You can also grab a coffee or a bite to eat at the Indigi Café or try the fantastic fare from the food vans. Spend the rest of the morning under the trees listening to beautiful music from local artists or relaxing in the fresh air.

There is so much to see and do at our Eco Markets. Don’t forget the nursery will be open during the market from 8am to midday for all your native plant needs.
