Mapleton Country Market


by Donna Klease


Who doesn't love a good Country Market? With an impressive 60 stalls the Mapleton Country Market has truly bloomed. 


With a diverse range of stalls including seasonal produce from award-winning The Falls Farm, and honey, sourdoughs, pestos, pineapples, jams and chutneys.  Oh, and don't forget to grab a yummy waffle from the waffle stall with seasonal fruit, ice-cream or cream, or a slice or pastry to go with your barista coffee.  


Sit down and enjoy your treats or hot food from the Blackall Range Lions Club while listening to singer/guitarist Beth Wilkins from Alchemy Music playing some country, rock and romance. You'll find doggie treats, arts and crafts, flowers, seedlings, plants, hay bales, worm juice, jewellery, pottery, timber and clothing.


Stop by Marie Googe's stall - her tribal name is Gundyarri (meaning spirit in her language). Marie has her traditional teas, bush tucker-infused relish, balsamic vinegar and other bush-infused herb sauces called Gamarra Tea and Tukka. 


Marie's main focus is on presenting the opportunity for everyone to feel supported in their wellbeing by having access to her traditional wellness teas. Her ancestors have used these infusions for hundreds and thousands of years, as well as tribal blends from international tribes that she has connected with on her travels across the world.


Marie’s teas are packaged in stand-up pouches and her sauces and condiments are beautifully bottled, packaged to tempt.


Do a taste test at Andrew Lancaster's stall with gin from Twelve and a Half Acres, home of his exceptional gin that sings the song of Australia. Uniting local botanicals and masterful distillation, he offers a taste experience deeply rooted in Queensland's vibrant landscapes. Savour it neat, mix some into your favourite cocktail, or make a gift of a bottle to a fellow gin lover.  


Presently the distillery offers an array of distinctive gins, including Montville Dry Gin, The Commodore Navy Strength, Lemon Myrtle, Liquorice, and Citrus and Spice to name a few. 


Quality, authenticity, and Aussie spirit are poured into every bottle. Nestled on the property that spans its namesake, this distillery embodies the adventurous spirit of its owner and operator.


The success of the Mapleton Country Market under the auspices of the Mapleton and District Community Association (MADCA), has made it possible for MADCA to offer a grant program to support local not-for-profit groups. 


Opened late last year, the grants have already supported the Range Community Kindergarten and The Mapleton Choir. 


MADCA president Max Standage said, “MADCA is proud to support diversity and inclusiveness in the community by returning the profits from the Mapleton Country Market back to our locals through our Grant program.”


The Mapleton Country Market is held every fourth Saturday and is a proud founding member of the Hinterland Market Trail.  Find them on Saturday April 27 from 8am to noon at the Mapleton School car park, 24 Flaxton Drive Mapleton, with onsite parking available.


See you there!
