At the last market alone, more than 200 stalls were set up, which market coordinator Bob Bowman said it was a ‘‘fantastic success’’. He said the committee is hoping for a similar number for the Australia Day market this Saturday

Since getting a start in 1977, the Tocumwal Foreshore Markets have been going from strength to strength.

Mr Bowman said marketing has been targetted to attract the regions many tourists to the markets, which he said has worked so far.

‘‘We have a lot of new marketers, and the last market was enormous.

‘‘It is just getting bigger and bigger and we have to keep doing new things all the time.’’

Mr Bowman said the markets are only a success because of its supporters and the committee.

‘‘Stall holders set up at 5am. It is just well organised, we have a good crew, helpers and organisers.

‘‘We have a big variety and people come from all over the place.

‘‘Stallholders wouldn’t come unless they sell their products and people wouldn’t come if we didn’t have the products.

‘‘We always hold our markets on long weekends, placing them for maximum benefit for the town and stallholders.’’
