WHO ARE WE?
LEARN ABOUT THE ORIGINS OF SCCM
We are so happy that you have found your way to this little online space of ours, welcome!
You might be wondering what we are all about here at SCCM, it’s quite simple really… we aim to create a platform for our local artisans, foodies, growers and musicians to gather and showcase their craft to Sunshine Coast locals and visitors from afar. Along with this, we want to create a community of support within our stall holders to feel encouraged and inspired to continually grow their brands!
At SCCM we are a market that believes in celebrating small business, particularly small businesses who desire to make a better impact on our world by hand making their products, restoring vintage finds or ethically sourcing the items they sell. We love when businesses go the extra mile to leave a lighter footprint on the earth and we believe in supporting products and artisans who resonate with this desire. Our market has really become a modern day treasure hunt and we couldn’t be more pleased!
This all started back in 2016 when the markets were being held at Mooloolaba Primary School. We ran the market there for just short of a year, under the name Mooloolaba Collective Markets. In August 2017, we took the market on tour, renaming to Sunshine Coast Collective Markets. A market day was held at Buderim in August and Big Top in September, before settling into our current location at Coolum Primary School in October 2017. We have since added a second market each month located in Alexandra Headland in partnership with the Alexandra Headland Community Association.
We are so grateful to the amazing community who have shown us so much support by coming to each market day and by spreading the word across the Sunshine Coast and beyond!
Maybe you’ve heard about us and you haven’t been able to visit us yet or perhaps you are just finding out about us, whatever the circumstance, we hope to see you at the next market!
