**TWILIGHT COMMUNITY MARKET AT NORTH RYDE ON SATURDAY, 14th DECEMBER**
Our next **Twilight Community Market** on **Saturday, 14th December** between **4.00-8.00pm** will have a special Christmas theme. Visitors from near and far come to connect and shop while supporting our friendly and talented stall holders.
Once again we welcome our community to this increasingly popular event held in the beautiful twilight hours during Spring. After visiting the market and having dinner, continue the Christmas spirit as you stroll the local streets to take in the creative decorations and Christmas lights festooning the houses.
We will present a variety of activities for the children who will be entertained while mums and dads, family and friends can browse among the great variety of stalls selling gourmet foods (local honey, handmade chocolates, conserves, jams and marmalades, sticky date pudding and fruit cakes and organic fine foods) and baked goods (delicious desserts and cakes). If arts and crafts are of interest there will be handmade crafts, cards, apparel and accessories (scarves, bags and hair clips and bows), jewellery of many styles and types and homewares (soft furnishings, eco-friendly products, floral homewares, candles) and great Christmas gift ideas. Also, handmade children’s toys and even a skincare consultant on-site. For the plant-minded there will be an array of succulents. For the children there will be face painting and play activities and, by popular demand, "Snelly" the Clown is joining us again making magic with his balloons and performing tricks.
So many of our visitors and stall holders comment on the **welcoming atmosphere and wonderful community feel** of our Twilight Community Market. It has been described a having a **great vibe**. Set in the beautiful grounds at North Ryde Community Church, located at 6-8 Cutler Parade, North Ryde (behind Council carpark) the market provides an opportunity to sit and relax and enjoy a delicious Devonshire Tea or be tempted by the wafting aroma of sausages on the BBQ or traditional Korean and Chinese cuisine as you take in the atmosphere.
So, come and discover this community meeting point and join in the family fun, purchase your Christmas and decorations or just treat yourself to that special something. Then be enticed by the variety of options for dinner.
