The end of March is near and that means the Pomonal Village Market is on this coming Sunday.
Please note, the Pomonal Market is always held on the last Sunday of the month, whether it's the fourth or fifth Sunday.
Now that autumn really has arrived and the days are more pleasant, why not come to beautiful, tranquil Pomonal to enjoy all that's here.
The beauty of this lovely market is that the stallholders are friendly, helpful and their wares aren't overly priced.
Where else could you get such a wide variety of plants and craft (mostly produced locally), books, food, sweets and costume jewellery, as well as vintage china and glass, CDs and tapes.
There are also jams, sauces and jellies, toys (new and pre-loved) hand-spun yarn, scarves, shawls, stoles and beanies, cushions of many different designs, good secondhand clothes, art, locally grown fresh fruit and vegetables, biscuits, slices, toffee, fudge, nut loaves, honey, tasty salamis and sausage, and so much more.
The Hall Committee of Management will have their delicious fundraising sausage sizzle just outside the hall.
There'll be yummy food sold from the kitchen, so you can have morning and/or afternoon tea, and even lunch at a modest price.
As for the reading matter, there are enough pre-loved books to start a small library! Reg has thousands, Gerry has lots and then there are several other folk with small interesting selections. There is bound to be something to suit your reading tastes; woman, man or child.
The range of plants is so breathtaking - Australian natives, cottage garden varieties, bulbs, roses, groundcovers, herbs, drought-beating succulents and even seeds - that it's hard to ignore them.
Our plant folk are all very knowledgeable and full of advice about planting and caring for the plants that they know so well.
Talking of knowledge and advice, Rosemary Stevenson is an absolute fount of wisdom and experience on the growing of really tasty vegetables and beautiful flowers.
Rosemary, an active member of the Seed Savers Society, has a mind-boggling array of fascinating heritage seed varieties and also her home-grown produce. So why not come and see us on Sunday?
