Rylstone Artisan Market

The first Rylstone Artisan and Produce Markets for 2017 are on this Saturday, January 14 in the grounds of the Rylstone Memorial Hall. They get underway from 9am until 1pm showcasing the extensive range of quality products the region has to offer.

At the last markets held in December, shoppers discovered a fabulous selection of fruit and vegetables as well as an extensive range of seedlings for those who like to grow their own produce. The same range of goods are expected this Saturday with a few possible surprises as well.

The association is always looking to showcase local talent, so if you create it, bake it, grow it or make it, and you live locally, you can sell it at the Rylstone Artisan and Produce Markets.
