MY Vicino owner Joe Tallarida will transform the carpark of his Wembley business in to a community market this Sunday from 9am-1pm to raise money for Helping Minds, which supports people suffering from mental illness and their families and carers

There will be about 20 stalls selling items from chopping boards and reusable shopping bags to stuffed dinosaurs and beeswax.

Mr Tallarida said stallholders were local business owners or members of the community and one of his customers would be performing live music on the day.

He said stallholders would donate part of their proceeds from the day to Helping Minds.

“Everyone in some form or other experiences issues with mental health these days,” Mr Tallarida said.

The café owner said the aim of the event was to bring the neighbourhood together and raise money for a good cause.

“My ultimate goal is to turn it in to a street festival,” he said.
