Southern Riverina news - - News -

THIS week­end will see the start of a new mar­ket sea­son for the Tocumwal Fore­shore Mar­kets.

Now in its 35th year there are more than 150 stalls this Satur­day, and some­thing for ev­ery­one.

The Tocumwal Fore­shore Mar­kets are known far and wide as a so­cial gath­er­ing for res­i­dents and vis­i­tors alike.

Mar­ket Man­ager Bob Bow­man ad­vises that all your favourite stall hold­ers will be in at­ten­dance, to­gether with some new ad­di­tions that will be of in­ter­est to ev­ery­one.

This sea­son the mar­ket com­mit­tee have been work­ing on ex­tend­ing their ‘food court’, so you can nib­ble as you walk or re­lax and have a great lunch af­ter you have fin­ished brows­ing the stalls.

The mar­kets con­tinue to show­case the wide se­lec­tion of lo­cally grown pro­duce, as well as plants, bric-abrac, cloth­ing, col­lecta­bles and all those creative and crafty ideas that ev­ery­one en­joys.

So as the weather warms - don’t for­get, ‘‘There’s bar­gains ga­lore on the Toc Fore­shore!’’

●●● Wel­come to De­niliquin St, Kris­tine Philpot and her cre­ation of Miss Daisy.

The love of de­sign­ing and sewing chil­dren’s clothes and beau­ti­ful fash­ion ac­ces­sories for teenagers to adults blends to­gether in Kris­tine’s new ven­ture.

This shop, a trea­sure trove of mainly Aus­tralian prod­ucts, adds to the va­ri­ety of shops in the town.

Af­ter sell­ing the chil­dren’s range of clothes at lo­cal mar­kets for the past few years, Kris­tine saw the op­por­tu­nity to ex­pand.

Kris­tine is open three days a week, so call in and say hello.

●●● Tully and Adri­enne Jones wel­come their sis­ter Imo­gen who was born at Goul­burn Val­ley Base Hos­pi­tal on Fa­ther’s Day.

Imo­gen is the third daugh­ter for Melissa and An­drew Jones, and sixth grand­daugh­ter for Anne and Colin Jones.
