Another market, another long weekend!  Easter was busy – really busy – but our market stallholders had a great time and we had plenty of shoppers filling their market baskets, catching up with friends and enjoying a beautiful morning out.

This year Anzac Day falls on a Monday and so we have a long weekend market again.  We have a fantastic list of stallholders, with some new faces as well as some returning seasonal produce.  Welcome to Choclaterie Renmar and Tolpuddle Cheese for their first market with us.  We also welcome back King Valley Walnuts with their new season walnuts and cold pressed walnut oil.  Our fingers are crossed that Rushnot Garlic still has some stock left for our market from their last season harvest but we will have to wait and see….

We have (as we usually do) some local community stalls who are raising funds for various local projects – Mansfield Community Fund, Mansfield Swimming Club, Mansfield Steiner School and students from the Mansfield Secondary College who are off to the Alpine Leadership school in term 3.  Combine this with our regular lineup and you can see that we have so much going on – what a market!

We are looking forward to the upcoming High Country Harvest next month – 10 days of fantastic food, wine, beer and cider events across the North East of Victoria.  This is an annual event and we *love* the calendar of events.  Mansfield is host to a number of fantastic events from a beer tasting degustation menu to a whiskey paired dinner and a cider and sausages lunch.  Plenty for everyone across a range of locations.
