Market moves forward

AFTER a successful first 12 months, the Leongatha Farmers’ Market is looking for a community based committee to continue it into the future.
The market, which celebrated its first birthday on Saturday, is currently managed by Community College Gippsland.
Tracel Devereux from CCG said they are looking at the next stage of the market’s development.
She said the market has a stable group of local producers and creators who hold stalls, as well as regular customers who attend the market each month.
“Now the market is established, we are looking for community members to join us on the market committee to run it,” she said.
“It will give ownership of the market to the Leongatha community.”
Ms Devereux said she would like to thank all of the market’s stall holders, the Leongatha Community Garden and Julie Curtis for all the work she did to bring the market to life.
“I am looking forward to seeing a positive future for the market,” she said.

Happy birthday: the Leongatha Farmers’ Market celebrated its first 12 months on Saturday, with a cake cut by Tracel Devereux from Community College Gippsland and inaugural market coordinator Julie Curtis.
