September 23rd 2012 saw the opening of the Aldinga Arts, Crafts and Produce Market. Aldinga Central Management has very generously given the ABBTA a six month trial period to hold the Market on their property, the green square on the corner of Pridham Boulevard and Aldinga Beach Road. This is an exciting new initiative of the revamped Aldinga Bay Business and Tourism Association. The role of the Association is to assist and promote businesses in our region and this long awaited market is the first on the list of their action plan to ramp up our region’s profile.
ABBTA’s vision for this initiative is to provide a vehicle for local producers, artists and craftspeople to sell, display and demonstrate their wares at a venue that is safe and responsible in its presentation. This is an opportunity to showcase local talents while fostering a sense of community. ABBTA will use the proceeds of the market to fund its other activities and events such as the Tour Down Under Celebration, which promote local business and economic development as well as donations to the community which raise ABBTA’s profile thus increasing membership and business interest.
The Benefits of this initiative are wide ranging. Aldinga Central will benefit as all advertising will place focus on Aldinga Central as the special location for these markets. Benefits for the shops in the centre include increased exposure for their businesses. Additional customers attracted by the markets will increase the volume of people at a time which is usually very quiet at the centre. The market will be finishing just as the shops are opening so the customers will naturally combine these two shopping experiences. The benefits for Tourism during the summer holiday season is significant. The market will enhance their holiday shopping experience at Aldinga Central. [Please note this benefit is historical].
