Croydon Central to host ‘Market Day’ event

Croydon Central Shopping Centre is paying homage to a piece of its market history, hosting a fun-filled Market Day for all on Sunday 29 October.

Once a bustling food market established in the 1920s, the now-evolved shopping centre in Melbourne’s east will play host to 20 pop-up stalls at the Market Day event, which will run from 10am – 3pm.

Shoppers will have the chance to browse through a variety of unique items for sale, including handmade jewellery, pet products, ceramics, kids’ clothing, and homewares.

Those wanting a break from the hustle and bustle of the market can pull up a chair in the centre’s urban dining hall, The Grove, and enjoy the sweet tunes of an acoustic artist while grabbing a bite to eat, where plenty of tasty bites will be on offer.

For those wanting to try more than one cuisine, a $5 sample plate will be available from selected retailers in The Grove, exclusively on Market Day. And, for a sweet end to lunch that’s hard to pass up, market goers can enjoy donuts, cupcakes, and cookies from the market’s delicious dessert stalls.

Local Gin distillery, Puss & Mew will also be popping-up in The Grove for one-day only, serving up refreshing alcoholic tipples and gin samples from 11.30am.

Shoppers feeling particularly lucky can try their hand at Croydon Central’s ‘Spin & Win’ giveaway wheel in The Grove. Each spinner gets the chance to win a custom Croydon Central tote bag, 1 of 50 x $20 The Grove gift cards, or the major draw prize of 4 x $250 Coles gift cards.

Other activities include free children’s entertainment such as face painting, balloon twisting and Croydon Central’s special Halloween-themed Scavenger Hunt.

Each child that completes the Scavenger Hunt will be given a Kids Eat Free voucher to redeem in The Grove, valid with any purchase of a main meal.
