THE popular Twilight Farmers Market will kick off once again this Friday at the Shoalhaven Entertainment Centre.
There will be more than 30 stallholders, set up on the front lawn of the entertainment centre, selling mostly locally grown produce.
Bruce Murphy secretary of the Bomaderry Lions Club, which sponsors the event, said “there will be a jumping castle, face painting, a clown, as well as live entertainment for people to enjoy”.
The market has proven popular and has been well supported by the local community in the past, attracting large crowds. Organisers are once again promoting the market as a place where they can buy produce that has been “grown or made in the Shoalhaven”, Mr Murphy said.
After the success of the Shoalhaven River Festival in October last year, there was talk of a move from the current location to the southern bank of the Shoalhaven River.
“At this stage we are not doing that, as we have the full support of the entertainment centre,” Mr Murphy said.
He said the riverside site did not have any power so it would be impossible to hold the market in that area.
“Council will have to make a change to allow that to happen before we could consider a move,” he said.
“At this stage there had not been any discussion with council regarding any move to power the site and the market will be staying at the entertainment centre,” Shoalhaven Mayor Joanna Gash said.
The market will open from 4pm until 8pm.
