St Thomas is getting its very own brand-new produce market! BUT not any old produce market, this one aims to be different….
As well as providing lots of lovely local, sustainable produce, the monthly Brillsville Market will also focus on community, resourcefulness and provisions. Yes, it will be a place where you can shop sustainably, supporting all those dedicated producers, traders, community growers and makers.
But the thing which makes this market different is that it will also be a place where you can learn about repair and rejuvenation of everyday items; ‘Make Do And Mend’, something we all need to make more of an effort to do. We all know we should buy less ‘stuff’ and be able to re-use and repair instead of discarding and replacing broken and faulty things. This is a hard thing to adhere to in an age of convenience. Brillsville Market will be the place you can get the support and advice you need to begin or maintain this shift in attitude. Each month the market will be inviting local community initiatives such as Men In Sheds and Ride On bike charity to be on hand to give advice and help with your repair needs.
Brillsville Market aims to provide a much-needed monthly community hub in the heart of St Thomas. Come along to meet, shop and mend, and enjoy being a part of this brilliant community.
