Building an Ark...

That's what we should have been doing today, instead of having a Market.  My goodness, that rain poured and poured and poured.  The perseverance award for the day has to go to Terry from Timberworks who stuck it out in his gazebo and made plans for improving his waterproofing.  Also to John our Shot Coffee man who brought his van closer and closer until we thought he might be coming inside with us!

Undeterred by the awful weather we cosied up closer and I got the chance to have a chat with just about all of the sellers - I love hearing the stories of how everyone got into their craft and hearing ideas for the market.

So today was very much about getting to know people and making new friends.  It was great to welcome some new faces to the market today - as well as catching up with some familiar ones too.

I'm full of ideas for the next one ... I can't wait for April!!

Hope to see you there .... don't forget ... Sunday 9th April, 10am to 2pm - it's the week before Easter and I'm sure there will be some wonderful Easter treats to tempt you.

So now I know what it's all about ..... well, maybe a little!!!

Crikey, how did Sarah make it all look such a breeze .... so yesterday was my first Market and what a day it was.  Huge thanks have to go to all the stallholders who kept me on the straight and narrow and made sure I was on the right track.

I am so looking forward to the next Market on Sunday, 12th March - lots of stallholders have already expressed an interest in coming along and I'm looking forward to welcoming even more sellers and customers than before.

Applications are now open  - follow the relevant link here:



Applications close at 5pm on Saturday 18th February

New Year ... New Faces ...

I hope you all had a wonderful break and are feeling well rested and ready for a great 2017.

Firstly, an introduction - my name is Nikki, and I have recently taken over the running of the market from Sarah, who has done a wonderful job ... I hope I can live up to her high standards!

I have met some of the sellers at the 2016 markets - I've manned the Devonport Community Garden stall a few times, outside in the carpark - trying to tempt the market customers with some of the Community Garden home grown veg.  I've ventured into the hall many times and have always been impressed by the wonderful stalls and amazing standard of your wonderful crafts.  I'm looking forward to getting to know you all and working with you to continue to present great markets to our customers during 2017.

Applications for the 12 February market are now open - the closing date is 14 January at 5pm.
