Sun shines for Gayndah Markets

THE FIRST Gayndah Markets of the year kicked off today without a rain cloud in sight.

Usually run on the first Sunday of every month, the markets were cancelled last month after wet weather made the grounds unsuitable for stalls.

Stephen Hickey of Gayndah Development Association, which initiated the markets, said the cancellation was disappointing but the region needed the rain.

"Setting up this morning, it felt good to get back into it again,” Mr Hickey said.

With home-grown plants, local honey, and hand-sewn linen on offer, the Gayndah Markets provide a creative outlet for locals.

Kerry Shaw has had a stall at the markets, showcasing her embroidery, for more than a decade. She finds it a great place to catch up with friends.

"People come out to see what's going on in the community and to help each other out,” Ms Shaw said.

When weather permits, the markets are held at Jaycee Park on the first Sunday morning of each month.
