Same market, new time
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.
