Shoppers will get more than they bargained for at this weekend’s new-look Summer City Market in Shepparton’s Maude St Mall.
Market committee member and Valley Booksellers owner Geoff Rhodes said as well as plenty of bargains, non-stop live music, food, show bags and a chance to ride in a Formula 1 car would be on offer.
‘‘It’s going to be jam-packed full of entertainment and bargains,’’ Mr Rhodes said.
‘‘We’re really looking forward to it this year.’’
Mr Rhodes praised the work of Greater Shepparton City Council’s investments and attractions officer Rohan Sali.
‘‘Rohan’s done a power of work in getting everything organised,’’ he said.

Mr Sali said anyone who spent $20 or more at a participating store could fill in a docket for a chance to ride in the twin-seat Formula 1 racing car due to arrive in Shepparton on Saturday March 9.
‘‘It will be a fantastic weekend — I can’t wait,’’ Mr Sali said.
