“It’s our birthday today ….” or it will be our 9th birthday market on Saturday this week!  Who would have thought that our little market that started off at Mansfield Primary School under the (newly completed) big roof would be the thriving market place that it is today?  We moved to our main street location nearly 4 years ago and have continued to grow since then.  Many thanks to our loyal shoppers who have supported us over the years – buying direct from the farmer / producer helps small businesses grow. There are some stalls who started at our market but no longer attend – often this is because they used the market to test their product and have now grown and moved onto bigger things!  What a great outcome!

Spring has sprung – according to the calendar – but we are still experiencing winter like weather.  Our big mountains – Mt Buller and Mt Stirling – are both experiencing Spring snow falls like they haven’t seen in many years. Mt Buller has extended their open season until the end of the school holidays and there is PLENTY of snow to ski / board / play in.  Make the most of it and head on up after the market – or on Sunday.

A reminder that our market is now SMOKE FREE.  This legislation came into play on the 1st August and covers the whole market area.

We have a great line up of stallholders for Saturday 23rd – check the list below.  Remember that many are happy to accept pre-orders and will put your shopping aside for you until you arrive at the market.  A win win!
