Sale Producers Market and Sale Charity Sunday Variety Market will both be held this weekend.

The producers market will be held Saturday from 8am at Sale Showgrounds.

The market will return to being held under the elm trees on the Dawson St side of the showgrounds, after being inside during winter.

COVID-19 regulations and procedures will be in place.

Among the many items on offer will be handmade clothing and accessories, wooden toys and other wooden items, soap, candles and melts, photography, plants and flowers, fresh fruit and vegetables, eggs, cupcakes, bread, honey, jams, preserves and meat.

Freshly brewed coffee, egg and bacon muffins and hot doughnuts will also be available.

Goods are grown or made by sellers.

After COVID-19 restrictions made conditions difficult for volunteers to hold the monthly market, Sale’s Sunday market will return to the Canal Reserve, near the Port of Sale, this Sunday from 8am until 1pm.

There will be big variety of stalls including clothing, hand made items, books, plants, bric-a-brac, egg and bacon rolls, a barbecue, hot dogs, hot and cold drinks.

Last month, volunteers for the charity market announced the market would be closed until further notice, resulting in widespread disappointment amongst the popular market’s loyal following.

The community-based market has been running for more than 40 years and has donated more than $350,000 to different organisations.

It traditionally runs on the third Sunday of each month.
