Come along to the next market on Saturday August 14, from 8am to 1pm and browse more than 70 stalls in the grounds of the Shire Clerks Cottage and inside the Waterloo Bay Leisure Centre auditorium.

The market will showcase items produced by talented local artists and craftspeople, including arts, crafts, jewellery, clothing, home-baked goods, plants and much more.

In addition to the usual stalls, the August market will incorporate a mini Ekka featuring special entertainment for children including a petting zoo, pony rides, face painting, fairy floss and 50 free show bags to give away to the first 50 children aged under 12.

As with every market, delicious Devonshire Teas will be served on the verandah of the cottage. Fresh scones are baked on site each market day. The cottage is open for viewing on market day, where you’ll find Iris, the lady dressed in pink greeting guests, and Laurie playing the piano accordion.

We look forward to seeing all our regular visitors as well as welcoming new visitors to this community market. The market is run by volunteers and raises much needed funds for the Waterloo Bay Leisure Centre.
