Student Markets are coming…to Fenn Place, City West on September 14, 11am-4pm.
Launched earlier this year by Experience Plus and with collaboration from UniLife, the Student Markets were created to give students an opportunity to show off their skills and talents.
Whether you are an emerging artist, designer or entertainer, or have a knack for selling snow to the Eskimos, the markets allow students to sell their goodies and make some cash along the way.
The inaugural markets were held on April 3 at City West and coincided with the Easter long weekend. For the 1000-plus people who attended, it was a chance to pick up a few bargains and finish their holiday shopping.
Stalls ranged from arts and craft, fashion and second-hand goods, to food, entertainment and much more.
The Burger Theory van proved very popular, feeding the masses with their delicious burgers. Long lines of students and staff eagerly waited to taste what some would call “heaven in a bun” from Adelaide’s very own burger aficionados.
For those feeling like they missed out, don’t worry; the Spring Student Markets are going to be bigger and better with a variety of goods that will delight and intrigue you.
There will also be a wide range of entertainment on offer, and plenty of food and drink stalls to keep you refreshed, including a free BBQ from UniLife.
And who knows, maybe the organisers will be able to coax Burger Theory’s van ‘Pearl’ and her much-loved burgers back?
If you’d like to have your own stall, email organiser Caleb Osborne Caleb.Osborne@unisa.edu.au or call 8302 0668 by August 30. For more information, check out the Student Markets Facebook page or visit the Experience Plus website unisa.edu.au/experienceplus/whatson/market.asp.
