After a break of approximately five months the next Gooloogong Recreation Park Markets will be held at the Gooloogong Park on Sunday, December 12 from 9am to 1pm.

A Christmas market, there will be a wide range of gifts available for everyone.

It will be awesome to see everyone talking, listening to the music, meeting up with friends again and having a great day out.

Aboriginal story-teller, Larry Brandy, will also be returning so come along and hear the tales he has to tell.

At the markets it will be a fabulous chance to purchase those unique Christmas gifts locally and support this significant event on the Gooloogong calendar.

To date organisers have almost 50 stalls attending and invite everyone to come for a nice drive in the country to Gooloogong, check out the stalls, purchase some quality products, listen to the buskers, partake of the various foods including egg and bacon rolls, chicken and gravy rolls, sausage sandwiches, gourmet donuts, coffee and just enjoy the day.

The organisers have tried not to book duplicate types of stalls thus being able to offer a wider variety of different goods to visitors.

Some of the stalls include cooking, soaps, jewellery, photography, Christmas gift hampers, seasonal local vegetables, eggs, honey, woodwork, sewing, jams and produce, lollies, plants, bric a brac, candles, kitchenware, toys, garden ornaments and much more.

OMG Gourmet donuts will be returning with their tasty donuts and the P&C with their famous ice cones.

As usual Adams Patisserie will be attending with their fabulous breads and pastries.

And don't forget the remarkable bric-a-brac stall of the Gooloogong Historical Group where you can pick up a bargain from their wide selection of goods.

To ensure the health of those attending the markets is protected and in accordance with the current COVID guidelines everyone who attends the markets must be double vaccinated and although the wearing of masks is not mandatory organisers encourage everyone to wear one.

Every stall will have a hand sanitising station available for your use and those attending are asked to exercise social distancing restrictions.

There will also be tables at all entrances with hand sanitiser, a QR code and a sign in book for the use of visitors.

Organisers do, however, ask if you are feeling unwell or have been in or in contact with someone from a 'hot spot' to please stay home.

Market organisers hope to see you and your friends at our markets on Sunday, December 12.

Mark the date on your calendar and have an enjoyable day out with your friends.
