From very humble beginnings in 2008 to being voted Gold Coast’s Best Market in 2015 and winning Gold Coast Business Excellence Awards for two years running, Marissa Bowden and Sarah Schoeller have successfully swapped the stress of the corporate world for sweet Sunday vibes and they shared their journey from local start-up to national success story at this fun and interactive event.

Appearing alongside Marissa and Sarah on stage was Jewellery Designer, The Village Markets stall holder and all round gorgeous girl Alex Olsen from Violet Gray Design. The trio chatted candidly about the evolution of The Village Markets, how Marissa and Sarah created such an über cool brand with heart, why building a community is key and much, much more.
