Botanic Malak

MALAK MARKETPLACE IS stepping out of the ‘burbs and coming to the George Brown Botanic Gardens. 

Market Co-Founder Lina Paselli-Kruse says it was a shared vision to bring the organic market to the tropical gardens in the city.

“The team at the Botanical Gardens have been wanting us there for quite a while because we share a lot of similarities in our values, being plastic free and eco friendly with our market choices,” she says.

“It seemed like a match made in heaven! So we’re running atrial this month and potentially we’ll be there on a regular basis in 2020.”

The initial trial will be a pop-up version of the weekly market, with Malak Marketplace’s top food stalls, live music, and new kids on the block thanks to a new partnership with One Mile Brewery.

“We wanted to make it different to our regular Saturday, so it’s got more of an after work Friday vibe,” Paselli-Kruse says.

“Hopefully it’ll also be a good teaser for all the new people  who have never been to Malak Marketplace.”

Grab the family – whether blood-relatives or work fam – and chill out with local organic produce washed down by a cold locally-brewed beer. 

And don’t forget the market is at its regular home in Malak every Saturday night until the end of October.
