To Market to Market to Buy a Fat Chicken
The relaxed crowd enjoyed the new main street venue where we were entertained by the Ballarat Ukulele Group (BUG) with renditions of several upbeat standards that had a good number in the crowd toe-tapping. The attendance of BUG continues a program of entertainers at every market. Some terrific acts are already booked in for 2016.
The range on offer at the market is never static and the January event saw the introduction of a new seller offering food with a Lebanese influence.
A number of the stallholders commented on the fact that they enjoyed good sales despite having anticipated that the heat may keep the crowds away.
For many visitors to Clunes the market is their first introduction, so it's great to see the town putting on its friendliest face to greet all the newcomers. The historic streetscape of which we are all so proud, framing the finest local produce, is bound to leave a lasting impression.
