Spring has well and truly sprung here in the valley and the glorious weather on Monday ensured Wollombi Markets were a huge success! With record stalls of exceptional quality produce and treasures, the markets were the biggest I have ever seen! The new parking space in Aleppo Street provided patrons with more convenient parking, accommodating 100 cars on the day. This was an extremely rewarding outcome for the Wollombi Progress Association's hard work and preparation clearing the reserve for the October long weekend market day.
The Progress Association will continue to improve the Aleppo Street Reserve by installing new picnic tables. A shady refuge in the reserve will be expanded with a new planting of Aleppo Pines, a large evergreen native to the Mediterranean creating more beautiful picnic spaces.
So for those of you that missed out this time be sure to keep the Monday of the January long weekend free and join us for a day of market awesomeness! The Wollombi Markets are held every Monday of every long weekend so mark it on your calendar for next time! I have literally decorated my entire house with treasures I have found at these unique markets and like to kickstart my hunt for decor with great market coffee and mini pancakes doused in lemon and sugar, YUM! If you don't bring your own picnic hamper never fear for the selection of lunchtime cuisine is to die for! Seriously good all round yum and fun!
