Wollundry Lagoon came alive on Saturday morning when Wagga’s monthly markets returned revitalised with a brand new name.
This month’s Wollundry Saturday Markets featured fresh produce, flowers, homewares, live entertainment, and even a jumping castle for the kids.
Wollundry Rotary Club’s market chairman John Smith said his team had been working hard over the last few months to revitalise the markets.
“We’ve got a lot of things here now that people like, whether it’s the crafty stuff, the food, the fruit and vegetables, the natural products, or the jumping castle and the music,” Mr Smith said.
“Ideally, we’d like people to come down with their kids, have a browse around, sit down, have a coffee, listen to the music, grab an egg and bacon roll or a pie, and just have a great morning together.”
Stallholder Haley Toms of Spring Secrets said the markets gave business-owners like herself a great opportunity to get their names out there.
“I only really started teaching myself floristry a year ago, and I’ve been trying to introduce different stuff like dried arrangements, candles, cards, and succulents,” Ms Toms said.
“I moved here for uni about five years ago, so not knowing a lot of people in town it was hard to get my name out there – these markets are a really good way to help me spread the word.”
The Wollundry Rotary Club donates 100 per cent of its profits from the day to charity, making it a market with a difference.
The next Wollundry Saturday Markets will be held on September 8.
