Baked goods
Gourmet foods – sauces, spreads and jams
Fresh fruit and vegetables

Children's toys
Entertainment such as music, pony rides and children's rides/jumping castle, face painting, and more.







Entry is by gold coin donation with proceeds going to Hartley Lifecare.

There is ample parking, including two designated areas for disabled parking on either side of the market.

A bit about the history of the

The markets have been running since 1987 and are managed by Hartley Lifecare. Hartley Lifecare is a local charity that offers accommodation, respite and support for children, adults and their families in the ACT and region with physical and complex disabilities. Hartley Lifecare's philosophy is that "while disabilities change lives forever they don't have to stop life or end the quality of life forever".

The markets are located outdoors at the Hall showground, which is great for browsing local finds in the fresh country air – but subject to the elements. If the weather is wet, visit the Hall Markets Facebook page for up-to-date ground and Market closures.
