To photo galleryThe River Market season begins

3rd November 2002

The first of this Summer's River Side Markets was held this Sunday. It was a classic '3 seasons in one day' sort of day. Store holders and caterers alike held their breath as threatening weather loomed overhead.

Store holders struggled against blustery conditions to set up their displays. In fact a few decided not to stay fearing the worst. After a few drops of rain, the weather moderated and it turned out to be a very lovely afternoon.

"There were a lot of people around" said Market Manager, Sue Evans. "In fact quiet a few store holders said that they had a good day. One said he had his best day ever".

There are six river markets held over the summer period. Three of them are organised and run by the Anglesea Primary School Council and form a large part of the school's yearly fundraising activities. The other markets are run by the Lions Club, the Football Club and the Community House respectively.

Storeholders pay a fee to set up on a 4m wide by 6m deep plot of land. In some cases such as the Jumping Castle and food stalls, a commision is paid. The school also runs, with the help of family and friends, the large food marque were they sell hamburgers, sausages, and egg and bacon sandwhiches.

Funds raised enable the school staff to provide to provide extra programs for students and to help keep fees low.

The flat open grass areas running along the western side of the Anglesea River is an ideal location for markets. There were approximately 80 stalls at Sunday's market.
