Built in 1858 and overlooking Corio Bay is the prestigious heritage building Osborne House. After various ownership changes, it is now a predominant and important community asset.
This majestic building holds various community events, such as war, art and photography exhibitions. In addition Osborne House has begun their very own Makers and Growers Market held outside the building in the well maintained gardens, overlooking Corio Bay.
This new market is held monthly and includes: Fresh local and organic products: Vegies, vegetarian food, cheeses, olives, herbs and spices, jams, plants and flowers.
Locally handcrafted goods: Cushions, candles and melts, timber furniture, metal products, home wares, arts, pet products and gifts.
As the market grows in size, no doubt the variety of stallholders with grow as well.
In addition to the stalls, customers can purchase lunch or a snack from the sausage sizzle that will be run by the local community service group.
Stallholders need to provide their own shelter, tables and chairs to sell their products, keeping in mind that as this is an outside market, considerations for the various types of weather need to be made.
Site fees start from $20.00 for a 3m x 3m stall area and costs $30.00 for a double site. Cheaper rates apply for more permanent stall holders.
Insurance can also be provided with a $20.00 membership to the Osborne House Association.
As you can see this market is designed to provide a fun and friendly environment for everyone. So come on down every month and help support this local community event.
