Collect or discard unwanted items at first car boot market

YOU can replenish your stocks and supplies after Christmas at Stanthorpe's latest get-together of producers and bric-a-brac at the first Markets in the Showgrounds.

The car boot-style market will hold its inaugural sale on January 21 and from February onwards the markets will be on the fourth Sunday of every month.

Organiser Chris Robins said there were currently no car boot markets in Stanthorpe - and these would be a cross between a farmers' market and car boot sale.

"I think it will be popular because we're going to include farmers' markets and there will be a bit of everything there. There's going to be a variety,” she said.

"We'll have plants, jewellery, craft, material, fresh honey, an exercise clothing promotion, handicraft, bric-a-brac, tools, fresh produce, flowers, and baked goods.

"The showgrounds are a great venue with plenty of parking and we will have room to grow. We can grow this market bigger and better!

"Everybody has a clean-up in the new year so come along and have a stall,” Ms Robins said.

The Ringmaster's Cafe will be open for light snacks, meals, tea and coffee.

People are asked to book a space at the markets, but booking is not necessary.
