Doesn't time fly when you're having fun! It's been so full on with the markets over the past couple of months that I've hardly had a chance to scratch myself let alone write a blog! But now that I've scratched it's time to write ...
Lots of great things have been happening with Leura First Sunday Markets this year - we now average around 80 stalls each month with lots & lots of great goodies to tempt us all!
Our hot food stalls include: Rotary BBQ with good ol' sausage sandwiches & bacon & egg rolls; Suzie's Gozleme has yummy Turkish Gozleme with assorted fillings; Deane's Hot Spuds with not only baked potatoes but also hot dogs, nachos, caramel popcorn & honeycomb - all home made; Yum Cha & dumplings from Andy. There's also Tony with his Mr Whippy ice cream van - great in any kind of weather! & of course there is a range of stalls offering take-home treats like Summerland Honey (honey) & Greentrees Gourmet Preserves (jams & preserves). Lastly where would our market be without great! coffee - our new regular coffee stall is Cafe2U so make sure you stop by for your fix.
Now that your tummy is taken care of what other delights can you be tempted by ...
Each month we have performers to entertain - this year local musicians Snez and Dave Vladis have been regulars along with a newcomer to our markets Linda Wood who recently performed at the June market & her blend of pop/jazz/folk playing the ukulele was a hit!
Our resident face painter is Cate from My Mother Goose & the kids certainly won't miss her as her stall has to be the most colourful of the market ... along with colourful Cate herself! Can't help but smile when you see her.
The amazing talents of so many creative souls who frequent our markets never ceases to amaze & delight: art by Phil Layzell; pearl jewellery from Karen Haynes; handmade knits by Sue; button jewellery from jenny at Gitane Jewellery; bags & more from Kirrily at Needle vs Thread; happy pants from Lynne; crochet toys by Kathy; cute kids tees from Cucumber Designs; wood burning art from Irene; cards by Gai; restored funrniture by John & Helen; tea cosies from Rosie ... there's always more each month! & there is also a selection of quality second hand stalls offering books, vintage lace, collectables & more!!!
Now that I've caught you up with everything our next market is Sunday July 7 - hope to see you there!
