SUNSET MARKETS TO KICK START A NEW SUMMER IN SCARBOROUGH
As the much-anticipated revitalisation of Scarborough moves into its final stages, the Scarborough Beach Association (SBA) are delighted to welcome the people of Perth and beyond back to the iconic area with the launch of the weekly (Thursday night) Scarborough Sunset Markets*.
Kicking off Thursday December 14 and taking over the Scarborough Beach Amphitheatre, each week the beachfront will ignite into a celebration of all that makes this location truly special - mesmerising sunsets, crystal blue ocean, crisp white sands, a foodies’ oasis, thirst quenching bevies, live music, creative artists and curated pop up stores- while encouraging locals, families and visitors to begin rediscovering Scarborough.
The Scarborough Sunset Markets are a primary initiative of the SBA Action Plan - which aims to work with local residents, businesses, Government and community groups to develop vibrant and creative activation's that encourage an exciting beach lifestyle. With the development still in progress, the markets will encourage people to return to Scarborough and provide much needed support to the local businesses and community over the summer months. As the development completion rolls out, so too the markets will grow into the newly created spaces.
Suburban Markets are hot at the moment – but nothing will beat spending your summer nights on Scarborough Beach with your toes in the sand as you wander through a global market of culinary delights.
Thursday nights in Perth will never be the same again! The Scarborough Sunset Markets are set to become WA’s most iconic beach side event for tourist and locals alike.
Visitors are encouraged to use #marketsandmoments to share their unique market moments and allow the SBA to share Scarborough with the world.
The Scarborough Sunset Markets acknowledges the traditional owners - the Noongar People - the custodians of the land on which we work. We pay respect to their elders both past and present.
The Scarborough Sunset Markets will feature a curated mix of worldly delights with over 18 international cuisines and multiple local delights on offer. Thursday night's dinner is now SORTED with a side of sea and sand.
The salty air of the Scarborough Sunset Markets will be filled with live music and a ceremonious ‘sunset song’ will mark the moment each week that the sun melts into the ocean.
Creative artists and curated pop up stores will flank the markets including; water colour art & jewellery; handmade candles; ocean inspired jewellery; handmade herbal tinctures, tonics & balms; dreamcatchers and amulets and underwater photography
