Coledale Markets were born in 2003 . It was and still is, an initiative of the Wollongong Produce & Creative Traders Markets a weekly Friday Produce & Art market in the heart of Wollongong city.
Coledale School markets has traveled through the early years of minimal stalls ,wild weather and road closures as the Seacliff bridge was built in 2005. It has now become a supported and well loved part of the community running on the 4th Sunday of every month.
The Market has raised the profile of Coledale School in the local Community. The local community are keen to support a local Market as most families in Coledale have some connection with the school. Whether its past, present or future, the children, and adults all have some sort of link with the school. The community is also able to "give something back" to the School by supporting the Market which in real terms means increased stalls and more income for the school.
