New season, new things to experience on King St! Read on to plan your month of dining, doing and delighting thanks to our retailers, partners and neighbours.
Strawberry Sundae September | various locations
Some of our amazing food retailers have put their creative hats on and imagined up some delicious desserts that use the official EKKA Strawberry Ice cream – that’s right, the official flavours have been made available to us for the first time ever. In purchasing these fabled tubs of ice cream to bring these ideas to life, we’ve had the opportunity to contribute to raising the much-needed funding normally brought in to The Common Good from the EKKA Strawberry Sundae. Find out all the delicious details here.
Spring Market and weekly workshops | artisan
Just in time for Father's Day, artisan is hosting their Spring Market on Saturday 4 September, when you can shop wares including ceramics, textiles, woodwork and jewellery from over 50 local makers!
