Mother’s Day Market offers something unique

Spoil your mum this Mother’s Day with breakfast, entertainment and a unique shopping experience at the Cotton Tree Markets.

You can also go in the draw to win some great gifts and prizes from the local artisans by entering the Cotton Tree Markets’ special Mother’s Day Competition.

Bloomhill Cancer Help, General Manager, Mervat Thompson said most of the products sold at the market were handmade by local artisans or sourced locally making it a great place to pick up a unique gift for Mum.

“There will also be a variety of new stalls offering candles, spices, as well as party and decor decorations and much more,” Mervat said.

The markets, managed by Bloomhill Cancer Help, are held every Sunday at King Street, Cotton Tree from 7am to 12 noon, and feature a range of local fashion, homewares, toys, sculptures, skin care, jewellery, art and crafts plus plenty more.

Sunshine Coast local and star performer, Sue-Anne Stewart will delight the market crowd with her music this Mother’s Day. Sue-Anne’s powerful songs are drawn from solid folk heritage, with a punchy roots feel subtly carried by her passionate vocal styling. She has performed alongside many well-respected artists, and at many well known festivals including Woodford Folk Festival.

To enter the Mother’s Day Competition, simply spend $20 or more from a participating stallholder and complete an entry form available from the Bloomhill Information Tent and participating stallholders.

“Our wonderful stallholders have offered a variety of prizes for the competition that will allow us to select multiple winners,” Mervat said.

The competition commences on Sunday, 14 April and entries close on Sunday, 5 May. Winners will be drawn on Mother’s Day, Sunday 12 May. For more details about the competition and how to enter visit

Operated by a team of dedicated staff and hundreds of volunteers, Bloomhill offers counselling, transport to appointments, respite care and a range of complementary therapies and other practical help to more than 900 clients.

Receiving no on-going government funding, Bloomhill relies on community support and funds raised through the markets and its Op Shops to provide its services.
