Puzzles & Toys @ Mitcham Village Market


My first article on the Mitcham Village Market was based on advance publicity supplied to me, so I was eager to see whether it lived up to its promises. After visiting the inaugural Market, I'm happy to say that it does.

Good crowds and a full collection of stalls combined with glorious weather made the Market a great success, and more markets have been scheduled through to 2013. They will be held on the second Sunday of every month, but also on some other days too. Check the website for details.

Live Music Entertaining the Crowd


The spring sunshine was perfect for the many outdoor stalls, and the variety of goods was wide - organic plants and seedlings, colourful art prints, and jewellery sellers competed with food stalls selling hot dogs, honey, home made (not bakery) pies, Indian curries and gelati.

Waffles, Gelati & Juices


Then there was Greek food (savoury and sweet), sorbet, strawberries and ice cream, olives and oils, waffles, and fresh vegetables. Pretty much something to tempt anyone with an appetite.

Delicious South Australian Honey


The range of crafts and jewellery was surprising, and I think at least as much variety as at Marion's Art & Craft Market.

Inside the Mitcham Village Institute Hall


While many of the stalls were outdoors, there were also lots inside the restored Mitcham Village Institute Hall. Some of the items for sale were really pretty - I particularly liked the hand made kiln fired glass pendants from Suzy Fortune, but unfortunately they did not photograph well in the bright sun.

Snacks for Your Best Friend


Dog owners were catered for with affordable treats for your furry friends, and there were exhibitions and demonstrations in the gallery area.

Inside the Gallery


There was plenty of entertainment for children with face painting and a brightly dressed boy handing out shaped balloons.

Free Balloons for Children


The Market was clearly a great success, and it can only grow bigger from here. There's talk of some pop up food vendors appearing next time, so keep an eye on the website for more information.
