BROOKWATER Markets' new co-ordinators want to breathe new life into the bi-monthly event.

Market gurus Margaret Quinlan and Zanda Adrian-Walla were approached by Springfield Land Corporation to manage the markets last month.

The women, responsible for establishing and nurturing the Forest Lake markets, have already made a difference, increasing the number of stalls from 14 last month to 32 for this Sunday's family fun day.

``The Brookwater markets have great potential,'' Ms Quinlan, who established the Brunswick St markets, said. ``We love the location, and that's why we took it on. ``If you have a market in your local area you don't have to travel so far, and it's just a good thing.''

Mrs Adrian-Walla said markets were often the hub of a community.

Ms Quinlan said one of the key components of a good market was to service residents' needs.

She hoped to offer new stalls for food, plants and lifestyle products, and said the markets had the potential to draw more people to Brookwater.

Face painting, live entertainment and many other children's activities will be held as part of Sunday's family fun day.

There is still plenty of space for stall holders.
