Pink Fig a success in it's second year

MARKETS, food, music and ideal weather provided the perfect recipe for a successful Pink Fig Mother's Day markets at Darling Downs Christian School this year.

Now in it's second year, the markets attracted families from around Toowoomba, offering the chance to buy something unique from over 50 stall holders who attended with their handcrafted and bespoke goods.

Live music, gourmet food vans and kids activities, including an animal nursery, vintage games and kids craft tents, kept everyone entertained.

"It was really encouraging to see numbers were up on last year and we had almost double the number of stall holders housed in our beautiful white marquee,” market coordinator Elissa Dowling said.

"It was nice to see people stayed and enjoyed the school ground's. We had some great music and food and people gathered to sit under our tree and enjoy a lovely afternoon out."

The markets are a fundraiser of the DDCS P&F and were sponsored by Toowoomba businesses and coordinated by volunteers at the school.

"It is a great fundraiser and a wonderful way to showcase our school to the community, while also supporting local businesses," DDCS Principal Adrian Fitzpatrick said.

"We are looking forward to seeing it grow every year and become a popular, annual market on the Toowoomba calendar."
