See you in the crowd at the Oxley Bush Market
MAKE sure to ‘ink in’ the 37th Annual Oxley Bush Market for a visit on Saturday, October 29 at the historic Oxley Shire Hall.
Staged on the weekend of the Wangaratta Jazz Festival, this market commences at 9am and is in full swing until 3pm.
It features over 170 stalls with an unbelievable range of homemade, home grown, home-produced and new items, with something on offer for all visitors.
The Oxley Shire Hall Committee, which organises the event, is anticipating another extremely successful ‘market day’, and hall secretary, Janet Heath, said the bargains on offer again promise to be ‘amazing’.
“Apart from the great support we receive from local stallholders, many also travel long distances to the market and large crowds are again expected to flock to Oxley,” she said.
“The atmosphere of the event is fantastic, with visitors purchasing goods, meeting up and talking with old friends, and children having rides and lucky dips.”
While many of the stallholders are regulars to the market, this year again sees numerous ‘first timers’ hawking their wares.
Gourmet food, drinks and toe-tapping music will add to the festive atmosphere.
“The market is in full swing right up until closing time, so those wishing to avoid the morning crowds will find everything happening all day.
“And, of course, the hall committee starts drawing the monster community raffle from about 2.30pm,” Mrs Heath said.
The Oxley Bush Market is again an official “Waste Wise” event and the committee is encouraging stallholders and visitors alike to ‘put the right thing in the right bin’.
Entry is free, and dogs are not permitted (guide dogs excepted).
The market is also a ‘no smoking’ event.
