Just a quick post to let you all know that there is a new makers market starting this summer which will be run by the Huon Valley Council. It’s called the Good Life Summer Markets and it aims to attract visitors not just from other parts of Tasmania but also from interstate as well. From Council’s website:
The Good Life Summer Market will embody the ‘make it, bake it, grow it’ philosophy and will enhance the Huon Valley’s reputation as a fine food, wine and arts destination in Tasmania.
I have signed up as a stallholder but I am not yet 100% certain if I will be attending the market in the capacity of stallholder, but if not I’ll be going to have a walk around to check it out. The first market starts on Sunday, 16 October 2011 and will run on these following Sundays: 20 November 2011, 18 December 2011, 15 January 2012, 19 February 2012, 18 March 2012. The market will run from 9am to 3pm and it’s located opposite the Huonville Foreshore on the Channel Highway (which I think in layman’s terms means on the Esplanade next to Page’s Garden & Gravel), somewhere around about here:
I hope it’s a good turnout (I’ve heard that there are about 60 stallholders already signed up) and going by the Council’s website there should be plenty of good quality locally grown produce, locally made food and locally made arty stuff and other goodies. There will also be a jumping castle and other entertainment so why not make it a day out down in the Huon Valley?!
