Walcha Farmers Market season launch: Sat 21 Sep 2019

After a winter hiatus, the Walcha Farmers’ Market are launching their upcoming market season on Saturday 21 September 2019, with some wonderful free activities for children as well as a traditional billy cart race and live music by Howard – The Banjo Man.

  • WHEN: The Walcha Farmers’ Markets are held on the third Saturday of the month (except during the winter months) from 8.30am-12.30pm
  • WHERE: McHattan Park, near the Walcha Visitor Information Centre.

For more information visit their website on www.walchafarmersmarket.org.au or call 0417 066 490.

Bring along the family or a group of friends and enjoy a wonderful selection of stalls including French pastries, espresso coffee, bacon and egg rolls, homemade lemonade, smoked trout, goats’ cheeses, handmade goats milk products, plants, condiments, Indian food, wood turned items and more.

Children will be entertained by The Bubble Lady at her free interactive bubble station. Be amazed as gigantic bubbles float overhead, twisting, changing and encompassing all colours of the rainbow. The Farmers’ Market committee will also be running ‘Save the Koala’ day activities with colouring in sheets, and tattoo and finger puppets for sale.

The fabulous SES will be on hand offering information to the community on the important job they do, as well as the Rural Women’s Gathering Committee providing information about their exciting upcoming event in November.

We’ll also have a traditional billy cart race. These carts, made at a recent Walcha billy cart making workshop, will get a trial run at the September Farmers’ Market before the main race at the October market in conjunction with the Walcha Mountain Festival.

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

“Don’t forget to bring along your home-made condiments, baking, fresh produce, plants, eggs and so on to the Community Stall and we can sell them on your behalf. “Our guidelines now also accept makers and creators so please get in touch if you are interested in having a stall”.
