Every month, a car park behind a bank on West End’s Boundary St transforms into a vibrant marketplace with live music, sizzling food, a bar and of course, an eclectic array of stalls.

On market night you can find vintage fashion, handmade instruments, quirky homewares, zines, homemade sweets, vinyl records, plants and even pet chickens.

The West End Twilight Markets are the brainchild of partners Scotty Russell and Sally Molloy, and Scotty’s father Ray. After Scotty’s successful jaunt organising the Friends of Folk Festival, he was approached with a proposal to do something with the hangar on Boundary St. Since its inception in 2011, the Twilight Markets have come to be embraced by the West End community.

In between scavenging for errant extension leads and patting puppies, Sally and Ray stopped to have a chat to CitizenJ about their thoughts on goals and success.

Scotty was in New Zealand refereeing a soccer match at the time of the interview, but you can usually catch him and the rest of the Twilight Markets team every fourth Saturday of the month.
