Eco markets are go

The inaugural Green Marque Eco Markets kicked off at Ground last weekend with plenty of fan fare. Rain clouds threatened proceedings early but mother earth prevailed with mostly sunny conditions and only one brief shower to speak of. It was wonderful walking through the market stalls and checking out the artisan products. Actually I didn't get past the first stall without spending most of my budget, whoops. The live music was amazing and there was plenty of space to chill on the hay bales in front of the stage and take in the tunes. The food vans were amazing with a big variety of foods and our very own authentic Japanese won tons from Tomoko. The Three Figs did a brisk trade and backed up market day with Mother's day on Sunday with over 70 bookings! Well done Mirella and the team.

Next Eco market is on Saturday 10 June and Sam and Claire are gearing up already.
