Supporting Your Local Community At The Local Market

by kateG (follow)
With lives seemingly getting busier and always on the go, itís often easy to forget about what is happening on your doorstep.



On the third Saturday of the month, the G boys and I venture to one of our local markets Ė Park Orchards Market.

Here, we enjoy taking in the sights, sounds and smells of what the community has to offer. With everything from fresh produce to the local CFA, you'll be hard pushed not to find something that interests you.



It is also a good opportunity for us to catch up with friends over a coffee and a sausage from the sausage sizzle while the kids run free.

Listen to the live music while you shop and let the little ones have fun with the kids entertainment on offer. To date this has included a petting zoo, jumping castle and pony rides.

The Park Orchards Market has been gracing the local calendar for a number of years. It started out as a Farmerís Market and is now inviting members of the community to be involved. Whether it is a community group wanting to raise money or awareness of what they do, or someone wanting to sell their handicraft or have a car boot sale, Park Orchards Market is the place to be.

Held in the grounds of Park Orchards Primary School, this market is supported by local community including groups Lions Club of Park Orchards and PORA (Park Orchards Ratepayers Association).

Park Orchards Market is held every 3rd Saturday of the month 9am-1pm

Park Orchards Primary School, Corner Park Road & Bowmore Ave, Park Orchards 3114.
