Smithfield Community Markets
End of an era....
The Smithfield Community Markets were established in 1996 and Smithfield Shopping Centre has been delighted and proud to host such an event that has engaged the community over the past 21 years.
In that time, Centre Management has consciously endeavoured to ensure that the Markets continue to hounour their purpose of attracting stalls with product that is locally made and grown. This is also due to being located inside the shopping centre which is another unique aspect of these market.
The increased popularity of additional markets on offer within Far North Queensland has also lead to many stallholders having smaller offerings through the region and we have noted a sense of market fatigue from customers, not only at Smithfield, but at other markets within the area.
Consequently, as Smithfield Shopping Centre embarks on the next stage of its future, it is now timely to mark the end of an era with the Smithfield Community Market, holding its final market days on Sunday 21 May, Sunday 4 June and Sunday 18 June 2017.
As we honor the last of our market stalls, we invite you to come and say good bye one last time.
