Goodness, it's been an incredibly difficult couple of years for Cowrie Market and our stallholders. Due to State Government guidelines in relation to Covid, we were heartbroken to miss a the whole 2020/21 season. This was due to the size our our market and the Torquay foreshore Elephant Walk location being unsuitable to monitor check ins.
Our very small team of volunteers have been working tirelessly behind the scenes to open our beloved market again. With restrictions still in place and an unknown future, we consulted with the Shire and GORCAPA. A decision was made to move to the Torquay Common, so three identifiable entry/exit points could help us monitor numbers and check ins. Of course Covid has seen us adapting to circumstances that have changed very quickly, so it's no surprise that the production process has been overwhelming. But we're back! We are excited to hold the market at Torquay Common - we hope you will come together to support our stallholders and enjoy our temporary home. Spread the word!!
