Melbourne's second-largest Market may have had to take a back seat in celebrating their 50th Birthday in ISO, but that's not stopping them from drumming up the FUN by inviting you to join in the celebrations. The event runs from 12 Sep at 4 PM – 26 Sep 2020 at 4 PM online.
You're invited to join in by sending them virtual hugs, writing birthday wishes (or singing it via a video) and thanks to the traders of the People's Market, and posting them on the DISCUSSION section of the EVENT page. Share your memories, your stories and post pics you may have from the past. Even share your favourite recipe from the 70s if you wish. You'll get the gist once you head over to the discussion page and see other examples.
All your efforts of good wishes and gratitude will not go to waste as this very action could WIN you a $400 Preston Market Hamper filled with goodies from Rhubarb Rhubarb Organics. WINNER MUST BE within a 15km radius from the Market to WIN. The FULL Terms and Conditions for entry to the competition is on their Facebook Page or find it HERE. Entries for the competition closes at 5pm AEST on 26 Sep 2020. ID will be required when claiming the prize; and again, you must reside within a 15km radius from the Market.
Your submissions of anecdotes, photos, memories, recipes and experiences of the Market and traders can also be submitted at the Market Office HERE. These submissions will be used for future events and activities planned. Home to more than 130 stalls, the traders and shoppers are the beating heart of the Market. Its essence has the power to transport visitors back to the joys of childhood as some remember holding a grandparent's hand, weaving through the busy crowds; the spruikers, the aroma of spices, international cuisines, tasting deli cheeses from a toothpick and more. New traders at the market keep it current with new products, making for a truly engaging hidden gem market experience
