Bumper year at markets

TWELVE months ago, Bowraville hosted its first Producers Market.

Started as a community development activity aimed at providing a focus for local producers and a reason for tourists to visit the picturesque verandah-post town, it is now celebrating its first birthday.

Driven by the MiiMi Aboriginal Corporation with the support of the chamber of commerce and the Back to Bowra committee, the market also promotes a healthy lifestyle message by offering information about health and well-being matters, along with selling fresh produce.

Over the past year the market has hosted Troppo Bob, Life Education and a host of local performers.

Market manager Marcia Hillery said the producers market had been well received by the community and was now working on plans to increase the range of stallholders.

“The Bowraville producers market is a fun day out for the whole family and we look forward to an increasing number of local producers joining us in this monthly activity.”

The markets will be held this Friday from 10am to 2pm. Stalls range from fresh local produce, plants, arts and crafts to an interesting range of collectible items.

For more information or to make a stall booking phone 6564 8855.
