Fig Tree Markets
The Figtree Creek Markets, run on the first Sunday of every month, are coordinated by the Keppel Coast Arts Council. The Keppel Coast branch of the Queensland Arts Council is run entirely by energetic volunteers and has been operating on the Capricorn Coast since 1993.
Monthly revenue from stalls assist the Keppel Coast Arts Council with the market running costs, the promotion of local musical talent, and the funding of arts and cultural activities initiated and / or coordinated by the KCAC, such as music and performance shows, exhibitions, workshops and the annual Village Festival.
Market stallholders are welcome to apply for a site at the Village Festival.
The Figtree Creek Market prides itself on its dual policy of providing an outlet for original, quality goods that are ‘Homemade, Homegrown, or Home-baked,’ (with appropriate Council approval for food-handling permits/licenses), or ‘Unique, Australian, and Unavailable through retail outlets’. The latter is subject to approval by the stallholder coordinator.
Therefore, the Figtree Creek Market does not allow the setting up, display or sale of second-hand goods, ‘trash & treasure’, imported goods, crafts or jewellery, or any goods bought and resold without any stallholder input.
The market operates on the first Sunday of each month, between 9am and 1pm. Stallholders need to be onsite by 8am, with vehicles off site by 8.30 am, and ready to operate by 9am. Stalls will remain operational until 1pm when vehicles can return to the market grounds for reloading.
