SUNSET MARKETS - WINTER EDITION
After the scorching success of the summer season - The Scarborough Beach Association (SBA) and Perth’s premier events company KINN & Co are blazing into the colder months with the launch of the Scarborough Sunset Markets Winter Edition, kicking off 18 May and running every Saturday until 10 August 2019.
Scarborough Sunset Markets Winter Edition in the perfect remedy for those winter blues and cabin fever feels. Scarborough locals, visitors and the people of Perth are invited to rug up in their favourite winter woollies and return to Scarborough Square for soul warming winter eats from Perth's best foodies, toasty sweet treats from artisan dessert makers, red hot beats from our resident DJ and roaring fire pits with marshmallow roasting to boot!
To ensure a cosier feel to the big sister summer series - the winter edition will be situated around the Scarborough Clocktower and along the purpose-built Scarborough Square. Global foodies will be wrapped around the clocktower and throughout the arbours, while hand selected artisan market stalls will flank the winter oasis.
Our local Scarborough Beach Scout Group will be igniting the fires each week and helping us keep them burning throughout the winter months. As is a Scouts tradition, ashes from one market fire will be kept and used to ignite the following week’s fire, thus ensuring the fires continue to burn week after week.
Saturday evenings in Perth have never looked so good as up to 40 foodies and retailers come together to showcase global cuisines, local treats and handcrafted winter wares. From BBQ meats, toasted curries, Italian street food, Asian dumplings, gourmet hotdogs, authentic Lebanese, Canarian cuisine, Brazilian bites, hot potatoes, real Moroccan, heart-warming soups, Hungarian fare, Irish inspired paddy wagon, western Indo rendang and slow cooked lamb shanks with waffle fries to French crepes and pastries, Greek donuts, waffles, hot bevies, fried ice cream and everything in between.
The hand selected retail stalls will ensure you get your winter shopping fix each week, with goods ranging from vintage clothing, artisan preserves, home-made fudges, handmade candles, clothing, dog treats, photography, hand crafted jewellery, mobile lolly bus, eco homewares and more!
Looking to enjoy a relaxing drink, or warm up with a few wines – our good friends at The Peach Pit and Scarborough Sandbar have you covered. Grab your dinner from one of our market foodies, head on over to either of these bars, order a drink and you can enjoy your market feast in the warmth of these mighty fine establishments. And no doubt you will want to stay on to enjoy the rest of your Saturday night!
Resident DJ FLEX will be bringing the beats – ensuring the perfect soundtrack to your wintery Saturday eves.
And if uniqueness and fun wasn’t already in abundance, we also have the Tiny Banya join us in week 1 - a mobile sauna connecting people in real life through creative sauna experiences and natural lifestyle. So if you looking to warm up after a winter surf, or just curious about mobile saunas - check these guys out!
As the sun sets into the ocean, the markets will come together to participate in the Scarborough tradition – the Scarborough Sunset Applause. An appreciation for the day that was and excitement for the night ahead.
