Rain, hail or shine, markets trot out fresh organic treats

IT WAS a hive of activity at The Entrance recently with a new weekly fresh food market kicking off.

Experienced operators Organic Food Markets said the new weekly market would run every Saturday from 9am to 2pm.

Locals and visitors will be able to satisfy their food shopping needs, pick up a tasty breakfast, catch up with old friends or meet new ones, while enjoying a variety of family entertainment in this magnificent location.

The markets, which have operated in the past, were particularly well patronised by the retired and the elderly who were able to grab food bargains as well as enjoy a day out on the waterfront.

Organic Food Markets' Stephen Choularton said The Entrance was a great site for the markets.

"We've been working really closely with the local community.

"It is a wonderful opportunity to make The Entrance Market the first choice for people to do their weekly fresh food shopping and support local business at the same time," he said.

"We had over 50 stalls for our first day including fresh fruit and vegetables, seasonal produce from the farmer, whole foods, artisan gourmet produce as well as hot food, entertainment and other delicacies and non-food products ... all the goodies you love to eat, as well as non-food stalls at the markets, every week, rain or shine."

Inquiries about the markets to The Entrance town centre management office on 0243335377.

Stallholders can direct their inquiries to 0299992226.
