Free shopping bags

FREE Shopping bags!
The City of Ballarat have donated several boxes of reusable shopping bags to the market, The bags publicise the City Circle tourist bus that provides free transport in the centre of town. Here's Heidi from the Events Unit showing off the bags. These will be FREE to market shoppers as part of our initiative to reduce disposable bag use. If you forget to bring shopping bags to the market, simply pop along to the BREAZE stall to grab a free shopping bag.

Demonstrations at the Market

Our Smart Living Markets at Lake Wendouree have been running since September 2014, gradually rebuilding the offering of produce and attractions for visitors.

We have successfully applied for a grant from the City of Ballarat to ensure that we can provide demonstrations at all our markets for the next 12 months. 

Our visitors have appreciated in recent months demonstrations on fruit tree pruning, grafting fruit trees, growing potatoes, solar energy and cooking seasonal produce. 

We now have the opportunity to pay presenters up to $100 per market to provide educational sessions at each market in topics that relate to food production, storage, cooking, animal husbandry, renewable energy, reducing waste and sustainable living.

If you have the capacity of know someone who you think would add value to BREAZE’s outreach programs at our markets please let us know.
