Malak Marketplace

Malak Marketplace was founded by Lina Paselli, Sachi Hirayama and May Aggabao and in partnership with Darwin Community of Arts, that will auspice the project, will take place in Malak at Chambers Crescent Car Park, from 5pm until 9 pm every Saturday starting from the 5th of September 2015 until the end of the dry season, mid October 2015, for six consecutive weeks, with approx. 40 stall holders.
At Malak Marketplace the following items will be sold directly from emerging artists and local farmers:
- Farmers market: fresh produce (predominately organic) locally produced defined within a regional boundary (the NT);
- Food stalls: food created with local, fresh produce and of high quality;
- Arts & Crafts: handmade products, including indigenous art;
- Entertainment: multicultural performances & film screenings
Benefits to customers:

Local supplies of fresh, seasonal food
Knowledge of the provenance of the food
The ability to know the producer and learn about their production methods
Contribution to local environmental sustainability
Better nutrition for the family
Better value for money
Opportunity to try before buying
Weekly social activity
Knowledge of and education about products
Sensory training and experience

Benefits to local farmers, producers and artists:

Learn what the customer wants
Deliver a weekly cash flow
Improve marketing opportunities
Present the person behind the product
Build trust with customers
Participation of locals in creating art (Common Threads & the Underground Project)
Benefits to the Community:

Promotion of local business and opportunities to grow
Malak’s profile will improve and will be valued as the new hub of multicultural arts, crafts and organic food produce.
A strategic location between Palmerston and Darwin, right in the middle of the Northern Suburbs.
Driven by a team of passionate and committed people with multicultural backgrounds and experience in local Community projects.
A colourful and fun Saturday afternoon/evening event to bring the entire family along, do your grocery shopping while admiring new and creative art and entertainment from local performers.

Malak Marketplace will have a colourful umbrella theming with oriental flare and only stalls of high quality produce and food will be selected to define Malak Marketplace differently from the other local markets in the Darwin area and attract locals and families from the Northern suburbs that are conscious of the growing need to understand where produce is sourced and how it is produced, the importance of the quality of food we eat and the impact it has on our overall health.
New and emerging artists will be invited to showcase their work, sell their art work, talk about their technique or perform live on stage when the sun goes down, live entertainment begins!
The Malak Marketplace Management team and Darwin Community Arts will use surveys to gauge feedback from traders and market-goers, to be deployed during each trial market day. We will also organize evaluation meetings at the mid-point and towards the end of the pilot period, where we will evaluate the project according to the aims and projected outcomes and benefits of the project.
The Malak Marketplace Management team is fully committed to the successful outcome of the project in order to continue strong into the New Year from the beginning of the dry season, May to mid-October 2016.
