Markets make a comeback

The overcast autumn sky and damp drizzle did little to dampen the enthusiasm of stallholders and visitors who attended St Andy’s Markets on March 6.

Between 8am and 1pm, a steady stream of people browsed the collection of bric-a-brac, preloved treasures, books, local arts and crafts and plants for sale outside the St Andrews Presbyterian Church, with proceeds from the event going towards the Clarence River Women’s Refuge.

It was the first time the popular local markets have been held this year with stallholders and visitors abiding by Covid-19 safely guidelines.

Devonshire teas and freshly made homecooked goodies and coffee were also available and many visitors said they were happy the markets are being held again.

The next St Andy’s Markets will be held in June.
