Country monthly market.

With over 150 stalls displaying every thing you could imagine today my favourite village, Yungaburra, was holding its monthly market. It certainly lived up to its reputation as being the best markets on the Tablelands. Only drawback was every one started packing up at mid-day and we had only arrived at 11am so it was a hurried look around. The standard of produce and products was very high. I hope we get another chance to visit these markets before we head home.

These are just a few photos I managed to take. There was so much to look at.

When the market closed we went over to the local hall to browse around the hundreds of books at the annual book fair. I found two beauties about sketching and art, my passion at the moment. So I came home happy.

This is one very tall lady.

  2. Brilliant, lots of fun, I love the tea cosies, what a job to stay on the stilts, her outfit was very creative with the pages attached to her skirt. You can’t beat fresh produce though can you. xxx Rae

    • G’day Rae, I thought the tea cosies were very imaginative and she had a sign saying she would knit them to be custom made to the size of your tea pot. How good is that?
