Mar­ket gain­ing mo­men­tum

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Or­gan­is­ers be­hind Hor­sham Fam­ily Mar­ket at Hor­sham Scout Hall in Bail­lie Street hope to lock in the event for the third Sun­day in ev­ery month.

The mar­ket, a col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween mar­ket or­gan­iser Cindy Ham­mond and Hor­sham Scouts, is gath­er­ing a ded­i­cated fol­low­ing, with the next one sched­uled for 10am to 2pm on Sun­day.

Much of the money raised from stall­holder fees as well as a sausage siz­zle goes to a fund to help the Scouts up­grade their hall.

Sun­day’s mar­ket, fol­low­ing pre­vi­ous events in May and July, will fea­ture more than 40 stalls.

Ms Ham­mond said the mar­kets had started with a chil­dren’s-prod­uct theme but had since evolved to in­clude a va­ri­ety of ven­dors and prod­ucts.

“This means we now have stalls with a bit of ev­ery­thing,” she said.

“For ex­am­ple, we’re go­ing to have a book stall this time around and we have a new lady with won­der­ful art works. There will be a lot of craft and artisans and spe­cial­ity and home­made food.

“We’ll have a jump­ing cas­tle and face painter and as well as the sausage siz­zle there will be cof­fee, ice-cream and take-home food packs as well.”

Ms Ham­mond said the hope was to make the mar­ket, also sched­uled for Oc­to­ber 20, No­vem­ber 17 and with a Twi­light Christmas Fair on De­cem­ber 13, an on­go­ing event.

“We’ve com­mit­ted to the Scouts and they’ve com­mit­ted to us and we’re keen to pro­mote it as a nice in­ti­mate and friendly mar­ket that is in town and within walk­ing dis­tance for many,” she said.

“We en­cour­age peo­ple to come along and sup­port us as well as the many lo­cal artisans who have also jumped on board.”

Saturday Scout mar­ket

Mean­while, Hor­sham Scouts will host its an­nual mar­ket un­der the grand­stand at Hor­sham Show­ground on Saturday.

Vis­i­tors can ex­pect a wide range of stalls, Scout demon­stra­tions, a sausage siz­zle, raf­fle and more.

En­try to this mar­ket is by gold coin, with all money raised go­ing di­rectly to the 4th Hor­sham Scouts group.
