Sunshine Coast Collective Markets is a family owned business that runs regular markets on the Sunshine Coast. Their main event is the fortnightly Sunday markets at Coolum Primary School, which makes for a very fun day out for all ages!
Their aim is to create a platform for local artisans, foodies, growers and musicians to gather and showcase their craft to both Sunshine Coast locals and tourists alike. They’re focussed on creating a sense of community and support between stallholders, and this is what really sets their markets apart.
We were proud to be the coffee partner at the Coolum Markets for 2020, and now we’re delighted to hand over the reins to our wonderful wholesale partners Saintz & Sinnerz.
