Market breathes life into CBD

AN ARTISAN market could breathe some life back into the CBD by filling up the old Suncorp and King Kong Sales buildings with stall holders.

Rachelle Barone is co-organising Artisan 4670’s city pop-up markets and said it should brighten up the main street.

“We wanted to do something before Christmas and thought it would bring some life back into the main street,” she said.

“We will have local artisans’ stalls and buskers performing, we have had a really good response.”

If the markets are successful Artisan 4670 plan to come back around Mother’s Day and Easter next year.
