New market operator to take Redcliffe forward


Posted 21 August 2019

Goodwill Projects has been announced as the successful tenderer to operate the Redcliffe Jetty Markets - the operator behind the successful Brisbane City Markets, Milton Markets, Kuraby, Carseldine and Nundah.

Moreton Bay Regional Council Mayor Allan Sutherland said the company’s impressive bid and proven track record delivering successful markets around southeast Queensland gave it the winning edge.

“Tourism is booming in the Moreton Bay Region and we want to know that these markets will grow into the future to become a destination attraction that people around southeast Queensland will travel to enjoy,” he said.

“We received a number of quality responses to the market tender and council officers assessed these against the criteria for evaluation as advertised. Officers made a recommendation to council which was accepted and supported unanimously.

“Goodwill Projects has over 13 years’ experience operating markets in southeast Queensland and submitted a professional, thorough, well-evidenced and creative response.

“Council looks forward to the continuing success of the weekly markets under the management of Goodwill Projects, attracting locals and visitors alike to the beautiful Redcliffe Peninsula.

“The social and economic benefits of facilitating events like the Redcliffe Jetty Markets cannot be understated, especially to businesses doing weekend trade along the Peninsula.

“This is a commercial decision about the future of the markets, which will attract even more visitors and continue to bring locals together on weekends.”

Goodwill Projects is incorporating a program to foster local and emerging vendors to the market, as well as attracting well known and established traders from around southeast Queensland.

The Management Agreement with the current operator is due to expire at the end of September 2019.
