Locals and visitors braved the morning heat to attend the first Naponda Farmers’ Market of 2014 on Saturday.
With temperatures reaching above 38°C, market-goers took to the stalls early to stock up on their fresh produce.
Situated on the lawns adjacent the Peppin Heritage Centre, the market is held on the second Saturday of each month and proceeds go to hospital needs.
Naponda store manager Pam Ellerman said this year’s market will see new aspects introduced.
‘‘It’s going to be fantastic, and definitely going to expand,’’ she said.
‘‘We’re always looking for new producers, even people with excess fruit and vegetables can bring a wheelbarrow down for $5 and sell them.
‘‘Anyone looking to do busking is also welcome, we’re looking for more youth activity.’’
