The Augusta Markets is a biannual event which aims to increase vibrancy in the Commercial Road precinct of Port Augusta. An initiative of Regional Development Australia Far North in partnership with the Port Augusta City Council and Business Port Augusta, the event is back for its fifth market. The last market, held in November 2014, saw over 100 stallholders and at least 2000 people attend.
With entertainment throughout the day, the Augusta Markets is a brilliant event for adults, children and families. A fee of $27.50 is charged which all goes into the event. Last market the fee helped to cover marketing, construction of signs and the hire of a marquee and tables and chairs for the food court area. Any leftover money is held over for the next market. The only ones to profit from the markets are the stallholders.
