The second Riverbank Markets is coming up at the end of the month. Here’s a taste of what the first markets brought to Yass…

Despite the heat of summer finally arriving, some 47 stalls put their wares on display for local shoppers. Items included clothing, arts and crafts, homewares, candles, pet treats, books, collectables, lego, toys, fresh produce, hot food, tea and more. It has been heralded a huge success by organisers.

“It’s a fantastic start for our monthly markets,” said Organiser Andrew Hennell. “We had plenty of locals attend as well as visitors from Canberra, Goulburn, Young and of course across Yass Valley.”

Although run as a business, Riverbank Markets will be donating profits back to the community.

“Once we cover our costs we’ll donate the extra funds to local community groups as well as the Country Education Foundation” Me Hennell explained.

“We began that from our first market with a donation to the Yass Roos AFC to help with their goal post pad replacement.”

The next Riverbank Markets will be run on the 28th of February from 10 am to 2 pm at Riverbank Park, Yass.
