Whether your New Year’s resolution was to be healthier, more thrifty, or improve your home, Brisbane MarketPlace has everything you need to make your resolutions a reality in 2019.
Get active and healthy
Setting a New Year’s resolution is a great way to challenge and motivate yourself to be healthier. The easiest way to improve your health is to add plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables to your diet! The Saturday Fresh Market is the best spot to pick up fresh produce for your weekly meal prep, and is also an opportunity for a weekend walk to get those steps up!
Support the community
Engaging with your local community is a thoughtful New Year’s resolution for 2019. Head to the Saturday Fresh and the Sunday Discovery Market to uncover local vendors selling everything from gifting to homewares and clothing. You’ll probably find a bargain, and support a local business owner in the process!
You have the KeepCup, reusable shopping bags for the Markets, and you’ve cut down on plastic – good job! Why not shop for beeswax food wraps as an alternative to clingwrap, or mesh bags to fill with produce instead of plastic? Another way to be more sustainable is to consider food miles. Head to the Saturday Fresh Market to pick up fresh produce from local Queensland producers.
If your New Year’s resolution was to save money, shopping at the Markets is an easy way to save on food shopping! You can grab all the produce you need at the Saturday Fresh Market without the distractions of supermarket aisles. Buying direct from the producer can also be a lot cheaper than purchasing from larger chains.
Hot tip: you could even make money by having a stall at the Sunday Discovery Market and cleaning out your closet! We’ve all been watching the new Tidying Up show on Netflix, right?
Make your home green
If you haven’t already packed your home with indoor plants, 2019 is your chance! The Sunday Discovery Market has a huge range of plants on offer from small succulents to larger potted plants. The Markets are an affordable way to cover your home in indoor plants, and discover something new to add to your collection every week. And if your plans included growing some of your own food, we’ve got you covered with seedlings and herbs galore.
