Con the Fruiterer aka Mark Mitchell at the Championship

Preston Market has been home to spruikers since its birth over 50 years ago in 1970. Hence it's only fitting that a spruiking championship be held on its premises at 30A The Centreway, Preston on Friday 1 July 2022 from 2-3pm. Special guest at this dedication to a unique tradition is Comedy Company favourite, Mark Mitchell and his iconic alter ego Con the Fruiterer. Popular in the 80s as you can see in the video below with a very young Sigrid Thornton and Vince Sorrenti, Mark will present a live act for your entertainment.

Welcome one and all to this free event at the Market. You can count on vibrant entertainment and belly laughs from Con the loveable Greek fruiterer uttering a barrel load of familiar catchcries like 'Bewdiful', 'Cuppla days', 'Doesn't madda' and more. Meanwhile, traders will be duking it out to be crowned champion spruiker for 2022. The championship will be entertainment in itself as market traders competing will be giving their best spruiking performance in a bid to win the audience over. Make an afternoon of it - enjoy entertainment, get your fresh produce, enjoy food and drink available to purchase, and specials from select traders.
