Demand for stalls at BAM continues to grow

THE Tannum Sands Millennium Esplanade will be lined with 100 market stalls for the September BAM event.

However, that isn't enough to meet demand.

Market co-ordinator Cecily Burkett said six stalls were on a waiting list - a credit to the event's popularity.

"This year we've had a waiting list a few times, each month it has become more popular," she said.

There will be a range of new market stalls including Hungarian food and a sushi stall, plus a maternity wear store.

Scrumptious Tattes, a gourmet potato stall, proved to be popular at a previous event, and will return.

Ms Burkett said the markets were ideal to pick up last-minute Father's Day gifts.

"I'm sure if anyone hasn't got their Father's Day present, they will find something.

"We will have the timber signage stall, which could be a great place to find something to put up above a bar for dad," she said.

The music variety is sure to be a hit with crowds, too.

As well as three performers on stage there are also buskers at the northern end of the park.

BAM DETAILS:

  • September 6 from 2-7pm.
  • 100 market stalls
  • Performers: Bronnie Burke 2-3pm; Brett Loretz Trio 3-5pm; The 4 Piece 5-7pm
