Choo Choo Market 2018
The seventh annual Choo Choo Market is already on the horizon and will take place this year on Saturday 25th August at Mirboo North Shire Hall between 9am and 2pm.
For those of you who haven’t been, the Choo Choo Market is a vibrant indoor makers market, which gathers artisans from across the Gippsland Region and beyond. Offering a hall full of handcrafted and unique wares to suit all tastes, it has earned a strong reputation among shoppers and stall holders alike. “We draw visitors from right across our region, to shop at our unique indoor market”, says Lorinda Campbell, Mirboo North Playgroup President.
Last year’s market saw beautiful hand-made childrens’ clothing, knits, crocheted goodies, beeswax food wraps, beautiful wooden toys, home décor and a local organic farm producing gourmet pantry essentials, preserves, cakes and confectionary.
