Opportunity to run community markets across the Tweed

Register your interest by 4 October 2023


Expressions of interest are invited for community market operators across the Tweed, including at Kingscliff, Tweed Heads, Pottsville and Murwillumbah.

Expressions of interest (EOI) are now open for individuals or groups seeking to operate a community market in towns across the Tweed, including Kingscliff, Tweed Heads, Pottsville and Murwillumbah.

Once selected, successful applicants will manage day-to-day operations, advertising and bookings for these community markets for the next three years.

Successful applicants will begin operation on Tuesday 7 November 2023.

Acting Manager Building and Environmental Health Marcela Lopez said these markets play a vital role in supporting local charities, businesses and producers.

"Tweed’s community markets are more than just commerce; they are platforms for sharing enriching experiences, championing local goods, embracing diversity and upholding sustainable practices," Ms Lopez said.

"We're eager to partner with individuals and groups who share our vision for these markets as vibrant hubs of cultural exchange and economic growth."

Interested parties are asked to read the Market Management Plan Guidelines 2022 on Council’s website before beginning their EOI. The guidelines provide valuable information for prospective operators, covering topics such as sale of food, stall types, waste reduction, sustainability and enhancing community and cultural experiences.

These guidelines also outline the location, frequency, operating times of individual markets and the terms of development consent for each location.

Council is seeking comprehensive submissions that address all aspects outlined within the guidelines.

Expressions of interest close on Wednesday 4 October 2023.

For more information on the submission requirements and assessment process, please contact Council’s Environmental Health Unit on (02) 6670 2400 or email tsc@tweed.nsw.gov.au
