This weekend’s Winter Market and Busking Festival is set to be the start of a great new venture organised by the Barooga Advancement Group.HANNAH NICHOLS June 19, 2013 4:16am
Barooga Advancement Group members Leanne May, Carly Brooks, Karen Bruce and Tom Saggers are excited about the first of the Barooga 4 Seasons Markets.
And Barooga 4 Seasons Market Committee member Leanne May said she is already thrilled with the response received.
‘‘We have about 45 stalls signed up with more coming in,’’ Ms May said.
‘‘The site can hold another 30 or 40 sites, so we are hoping this will be something the community really embraces and makes the most of and that we get a good crowd.’’
Stalls will include food, craft, fresh produce, massage, scrapbooking, lollie stall, garden ornaments, jewellery, handmade wooden items, plants and wine, plus much much more.
For the kids there will be jumping castle, face painting and plenty of fun entertainment.
Ms May and Karen Bruce have been developing the market concept for six months and she is excited the first event has finally arrived.
‘‘The whole concept was driven by the retirement of the Barooga Lion’s Market as well as the need to promote local produce and provide entertainment to the locals,’’ she said.
‘‘We were on edge to start with, we had no idea what to expect being first timers.’’
The markets are designed to have a ‘‘real community atmosphere’’ and the space will include a seating area where you can head along and listen to the live professional buskers while sipping a wine from the one of the stalls.
There will be buskers from Melbourne and Sydney making the trip here to provide the crown with plenty of entertainment on the day.
Ms May said the group will be taking bookings right up until Friday night. Call 5873
