Whiti Citi Markets
The first great feature for Whiti Citi markets on the Saturday of the long weekend was no rain and no wind. Hooray! And the people responded in crowded numbers with the markets deciding to stay open until 2.00pm for the keen browsers and shoppers.
There were the familiar stalls for the market goers – candy floss, mussel fritters, the Lions Club sausage sizzle, Opito Bay Salt, Uncle Dunkle sauces, Castle Rock Fine Foods but there was also Dosa South Indian savoury crepes this time and new craft and hand-made product stalls. Dave Kennedy was in fine form with his voice and enormous repertoire of easy listening and ‘easy to sing along to’ music.
What a great venue for markets is the Soldiers Memorial Park. Join them there on Saturday mornings 8.30am to 1.00pm.
Coroglen Farmer’s Market is back, Sunday mornings from now till Autumn
It’s a cheerful browse for the whole family. Set beside and inside the historic Gumtown Hall on State Highway 25, Sundays 9.00am to 1.00pm. Local seasonal vegetables, arts and crafts, tasty treats and more are there plus a variety of local handicrafts stalls beautifully displayed in the Gumtown Hall. There is a covered area for sitting and chatting and munching.
Hahei Mini Market
Hahei Mini Market was a great success after the postponements due to cyclones earlier in
the year. Lorne DePape, organiser, was very pleased with the turnout.
