just wanted to let everybody know about a new "trash & treasure" style market starting next weekend. i have no idea if it's going to be good, especially the first few weeks, but it sounds promising...

Fruit & Vegetables, Flowers, Plants, Nuts, Coffee, Tea, Lollies, Jams, Biscuits, Bread, Cakes......and much much more.

Starting February 8th, 2009
Trading Starts at 9am - Finishing 4pm

i'd love to hear if anybody checks it out.

Highly disappointing. The market was tiny and hardly any - perhaps 2 trash/treasure stalls. If it wasn't for some nice hand made bags it would have been a waste of time. Hopefully it will get better.

Just wanted to let you know that i was on my way to this market and my sister got there before me and quickly rang me and said don't bother there are only about 13 stalls and they went through them all in 10minutes. I do think things will pick up but its still early days and even though its advertised as 300 stalls well its not that at the moment
