Carnival excites market-goers

LEONGATHA enjoyed a special twist on the town’s farmers market on Saturday.

A carnival theme brought in a crowd, and children enjoyed a jumping castle, face painting, and an egg and spoon race.

Farmers market organiser Julie Curtis said the egg and spoon race was a hit, and may run again at future markets.

Music was provided by Marty Box, as well as Leongatha Secondary College’s intermediate band, rock band, flute quartet and brass ensemble.

The market has been a monthly fixture on Leongatha’s calendar since May and has continued to grow bigger and better.

There were 26 stalls in the farmers’ section and 25 stalls in the crafts section.

Ms Curtis anticipated the next two markets would draw in big crowds before Christmas, with the last market scheduled for December 23.

“The locals have been very supportive, the customers have been really happy and we’ve had great feedback,” she said.
