HOT – Jan Powers Farmers Markets – Logan Rd, Stones Corner.

Jan Powers has taken a leap of faith and brought her farmers markets to the quirky Logan Rd strip in Stones Corner – otherwise home to a few hit ‘n miss cafes and clothing shops alike, store plenty of empty run down stores and a mish-mash of people from all walks of life.

Stones Corner reeks of social potential and those of us with a soft spot are waiting with bated breath for things to go pop.  Last Sunday was the first of many market days to come, patient with Jan Powers vowing to return and hitch her market cart outside the famous Stones Corner pub on the second and fourth Sundays of every month.

So how did the first market day stack up?  Well I’m 110% committed to the Stones Corner revival cause and to see the strip packed with stalls and people jostling for space was fantastic – so yeah, ask I reckon the first market day stacked up ok and I can’t wait for the next one.

 

I guess as far as markets go, it’s fairly standard and on par with the other Jan Powers farmer markets around Brisbane. 

There were plenty of fruit and veg stores that were on the cheaper side of well priced and the produce looked good.  There were a range of food and beverage stalls oozing personality and all sorts of mouth watering smells. 

There are plenty of stalls to tickle your home wares fancy as well as a range of flower stalls to choose from.

Aside from the markets, there are some new cafes in the area at which you can rest your weary feet over a coffee or brekky and also some boutique clothing stores that are well worth a look.    

The next Stones Corner market day is Sunday 25th September.
