“This market season will be full of fun and entertainment, with live music and the Kids Corner a regular fixture at each market.”  Walcha Farmers Market Secretary, Lisa Kirton said.

“Don’t forget to bring along your home-made relishes, cakes, fresh produce, plants, eggs and so on to the Community Stall and we can sell them on your behalf.   New stallholders are always welcome” Lisa said.
