Over 100 Mumpreneurs (including Lil Pip!) will take over the Melbourne Showgrounds combining their talents and entrepreneurial powers to create a market shopping experience and family fun day out; a first of its kind in the state.
“There are literally thousands of women across Melbourne who design, make and bake the most amazing goods. They are up against big retailers, and often only dream of selling to the masses. I wanted to create a Markets Extravaganza to give these women a chance to shine, and for their hard work to be recognised many are marketing on Facebook and then attending local markets every other month”, says founder Amy Cimino.

The Huckleberry Market philosophy is carried right through the Extravaganza with significant entertainment across the two days for children, and popular ABC personality Jimmy Giggle booked to appear on Sunday. A parents chill out zone is being custom built to provide an area for child feeding, changing and “chilling out”, before heading back for another round of shopping!
“The extravaganza is a day out! We want families to spend the whole day with us, everything they need is on hand to make sure Mum can shop and the rest of the family can have a great time too. We are getting a lot of excited Mums asking if they get to meet Jimmy Giggle too!”
The Huckleberry Market Extravaganza is being supported by many sponsors including Starshots Knox City, Ascot Vale, Brighton and Foutaingate and Awesome Playgrounds.
Sponsors and product partners have contributed to prizes and goodies in excess of $15,000. A prize draw is taking place for pre event ticket sales and prizes will be given away at the event over the two days.
Tickets can be purchased at online and are $12 if pre booked, children are Free and discounts are available for group discounts.

So do all the mummies out there love Jiggle Giggle? My owlets are a little old for him now so I haven't really watched him much. It wasn't until I googled images and found the one above that I looked with different eyes!
