I am very excited to announce that the Flinders Community Market is back up and running this week (24th March).

It’s a community market, where you can access free and low-cost food.
The Community Market is held at the Oasis Community Centre every Thursday during semester in 2022 from 11am-1pm to bring you FREE fruit and vegetables available along with LOW COST pantry items

- Please print the ticket and bring with you or bring it on your phone, for scanning upon entrance to the Market.
- Everyone is to keep 1.5m distance at all times and use hand sanitiser upon entry and exit of the Common Room

Where is it?
The OASIS Common Room – OASIS is located at J7 on the campus map – walk from the library through the laneway to the building opposite car park 5.
We plan on running the market every Thursday and will open up the bookings every few weeks as we may modify the times/sessions depending on demand.
See you soon!
Why a market?
We are mindful that food can constitute a significant part of a weekly budget, and most students are on a tight budget.
Good nutrition however 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 help us feel like, despite the challenges of COVID, the world is opening up again.
