Every month we look forward to connecting with our market children and their families, by offering a program of activities either free, by donation or at a small charge.
We are excited to offer a program of activities that will be held at the market on Sunday mornings between 10-11am.
The location at the market will vary from time to time, with most being held in the Market Pavilion (Eastern end), unless otherwise stated.
These activities are a great opportunity to create something special together, so we ask that an adult remains with their child for the duration and provides assistance as required.
