Market day

I was glad to recently pay a visit to the Kalangadoo Faarmer’s Market, for their Spring Fair day.  The weather was a perfect Spring day, and visitors abounded.

Of particular interest to me was the Dodge farm vehicle.  I’d seen this particular vehicle once before, and admired the attention to detail on its restoration by the owner.  There was further work done to it, including the new roof – lined with jute.  The Australian Red Kelpie ‘minding’ the vehicle, was most friendly ( and got lots of treats from passersby!)

It’s always a friendly place to visit – I just wish it wasn’t so far from where I live at the moment!

  1. What a fun outing. That Dodge is some kind of vehicle. I especially like the view from the read, and the hinges on the wood panel. The insignia intrigues me. I see it as a Star of David, but does it have some other significance there in your part of the world? Or is it just what they choose as their logo?

  2. Hi Enivea. Local markets can be a joy. At Wesley Hill Market, I relish being able to buy from the makers, producers and growers. Some stall holders are there all year round whilst others appear seasonally.
    When it is raspberry season again, the raspberry man from Newstead will reappear.

    • Raspberries! How wonderful! I once had the pleasure of renting a cottage that had a patch of them growing, and while I wasn’t there for long, it was long enough to enjoy a crop of raspberries.
