Prahran Market

Santa is paying Prahran Market a visit this year, and we helped spread the word by sending out a media release to Melbourne news outlets. This was further supported by social media posts on the Prahran Market’s Facebook and Instagram page.

The jolliest man of the festive season will be dropping by Prahran Market this year, giving Market-goers the chance to take a photo with Santa and their kids or furry friends, simply by making a donation to a great cause.

Santa will visit Australia’s premier food Market on the weekend before Christmas for the happy snaps, with visitors able to take their own Santa & pet photos from 12 – 2pm on Saturday 17th December, and Santa & kids photos from 12 – 2pm on Sunday 18th December.

Santa will be situated in Market Square and visitors just need to bring their own camera to capture the moment. Conscious of the cost of living and to make the opportunity accessible to everyone, they just donate what they can to take a photo (minimum gold coin). All proceeds will go towards local charity, Uniting Prahran, which offers a range of services and programs to help people in the community experiencing crisis and work towards a brighter future.

Uniting Prahran will also have boxes for people to donate non-perishable foods at Prahran Market should they wish.

The photo sessions will be a great way for kids and fur babies to get their yearly Santa photos without a large expense or the need to book, and to donate to a great local cause.

But the festive fun doesn’t end there! Santa will be returning to rove the Market aisles in the 5 days leading up to Christmas that the Market is open: Tuesday 20th to Saturday 24th December, 11am-2pm each day.
