Ashleigh Theunissen, the organiser of a Mui Wo pop-up market, says she’s been overwhelmed with interest in the retail event.
Since announcing it on Facebook she says she’s had inquiries from people wanting to sell crafts such as jewellery and fabrics, importers of goods including Kenyan products, and those offering edibles such as scones, jams and cookies.
The market, located next to Pause Cafe (opposite the children’s playground) is planned for September 12-13.
With the high level of interest already shown, Ashleigh is confident she can put on further markets every two weeks.
It’s a small space though, with only room for around 10 stalls, so places will be allocated on a first-come first-serve basis.
Ashleigh, who lives at Tai Tei Tong, said she is setting up the market to provide “something new and exciting” for Lantau on the weekend.
“It also gives people the opportunity to grow their small businesses.”
