Flinders Community Market

Community Market

 

One of the challenges of being a student is eating well, and unfortunately beer doesn’t constitute a suitable diet on its own.

But eating well can be expensive. Those activated almonds and spiced quinoa balls are costing me a fortune.

But this all changed on the 1st March 2018 when OASIS and FUSA launched the Flinders Community Market.

What is it?

It’s a community market, where you can access free and low-cost food.

It runs every Thursday during term time in two sessions: 11am to 12pm and 1pm to 2pm.

At the market you will find:

  • Free and low-cost food thanks to Foodbank and Secondbite
  • Fresh produce (fruits and vegetables)
  • Cooking demonstrations
  • Activities you can get involved in such as colouring, drawing, writing

Where is it?

The OASIS Courtyard – OASIS is located at J7 on the campus map – walk from the library through the laneway to the building opposite car park 5.

How to get involved

You can just show up on the day at either the 11am-12pm or 1pm-2pm session, however you are required to register your attendance. This can be done at the door with one of our volunteers, or via the link below prior to the event.

If you register before the event using the link below, please bring your ticket (either printed or on your phone) to be scanned on the day.

Why a market?

Good nutrition is central to performing at your best. The market is there to help you get good quality food at really good prices.

Also, markets create a wonderful sense of community and provide an avenue through which individuals or groups can share/sell their creations.

 

Help support this crucial student service by coming and visiting us on Thursdays.

Also, share this post with fellow staff and students who might be interested.

 

Other options

If you can’t make it to the market, keep in mind that there are other Food Hubs in Adelaide where students can get cheap food, including the city and O’Halloran Hill.
