Valley Booksellers’ Geoff Rhodes is gearing up for a big weekend at the Summer City Market in Shepparton’s Maude St Mall.

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 the mall would be packed with more than 50 different stalls, including wine and beer tasting and a food marquee, as well as displays of boats, motorbikes and fishing, camping and outdoor accessories.

Live music on Friday will be provided by the Victoria Police Showband, while on Saturday the Adrian Parsons Jazz band will perform.

Shoppers will also get a preview of Saturday night’s People Supporting People concert.

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.

The Summer City Market kicks off tomorrow from 9am to 7.30pm and continues on Saturday from 9am until 3pm.
