Same mar­ket, new time

Southern Riverina news - - FINCITY FOOD & MUSIC FEST -

The FinCity Mu­sic and Food Fes­ti­val has pro­vided the Fin­ley Farm­ers’ Mar­ket with a great chance to host its first twi­light mar­ket.

And Fin­ley Farm­ers’ Mar­ket Com­mit­tee sec­re­tary Nola Pin­nuck said the group is ex­cited to try some­thing new.

‘‘We’ve been run­ning the farm­ers’ mar­ket for the past seven years, and have re­cently wanted to try and re­vamp it,’’ she said.

‘‘Com­mit­tee mem­ber Matt Han­nan drove the idea, and Cather­ine Healy has been work­ing re­ally hard to make it hap­pen.

‘‘Most of our farm­ers’ mar­ket stall­hold­ers prob­a­bly haven’t ex­pe­ri­enced a twi­light or night mar­ket in the past, par­tic­u­lar­ity a mar­ket with such lively at­mos­phere, so it will be a new ex­pe­ri­ence for them.

‘‘We’re build­ing on the farm­ers’ mar­ket to try and make it a spe­cial yearly event.

‘‘I’m of­ten told by stall­hold­ers ‘we like your mar­ket’,’’ Ms Pin­nuck said.

This Satur­day’s farm­ers’ mar­ket will fea­ture fresh fruit and veg­eta­bles, wine, farm fresh eggs, olive oils, home­made cho­co­lates, seedlings, cof­fee, henna tat­toos, al­paca knitwear and cup­cakes.

The Fin­ley High School Ti­mor-Leste Im­mer­sion Pro­gram stu­dents have vol­un­teered to set up be­fore the event, and clean-up after­wards.

The Fin­ley Farm­ers’ Mar­ket is nor­mally held on the first Satur­day of each month, in the morn­ing, at Rail­way Park.
