The market takes place on the first and third Saturday of each month at Manjin Park.

Market manager Kim Starkie said the event attracted a wide range of people.

“Today we had more people visiting from out of town, but sometimes it’s all locals that come down,” Mrs Starkie said.

She said the market normally had about 15 to 17 stalls but due to the weather and people being sick this week had about 10.

“Now it’s getting into summer we should get even more stalls because things are coming into season,” she said.
