AFTER a three-year Covid-induced hiatus the Mount Hawthorn Hawkers Market is in line to return in 2023. 

The markets started in 2014 and used to run every Friday during the warmer months, getting more than 500 people a week out to Axford Park.

In March 2020 the market operators Heart Inspired Events announced they were ending the season early “due to the recent escalating health concerns surrounding the coronavirus”.

The old markets were usually fed by a rotation of foodtrucks but now the council wants the hawkers markets to showcase Vincent’s local eateries.

Vincent mayor Emma Cole announced they were seeking a new operator via tender this week.

“We would really like to see the popular hawkers market returning to Friday nights as soon as possible,” Ms Cole said.

“Covid-19 pressed pause on this annual event for a few years, but we are keen to see it make a comeback.”

EOIs close February 17.
