SUSTAINABLE ENTERPRISE 2019

And the winner is…..

Malak Marketplace!

The Malak Marketplace has exhibited strong sustainability principles in its operations and a significant commitment to eco-friendly sustainable development management practices.

The Malak Marketplace began from a need identified for a clean local farmers market in Darwin focusing on local, spray-free and organic produce. It is an evening market that activates an urban space to bring together a diverse multicultural community to showcase the talents, creativity and interests of local community members.

In a city known for markets, Malak Marketplace is an innovator. The market has significantly committed management practices and stall holders to ecofriendly and sustainable development. It is continually introducing new ideas and methods focusing on quality organic produce, environmental sustainability and community education. It runs the clean living market tours, has created water refill stations, hosts bag making workshops from recycled and natural materials, and has petitioned the City of Darwin to jettison single use plastic from Council events.

The stall holders at Malak Marketplace display a Clean Living Frond Rating certificate to indicate what approach they take to their environmentally friendly and organic practices. This encourages conversation between the consumers and traders about clean living practices.
