The Beachport Market day was held yesterday (March 30) and co-ordinator Jane Brookshaw said that there were 40 stalls, with stall holders coming from as far away as Adelaide, Mt Gambier, Naracoorte, Penola, and Millicent.
It was a very successful day despite the weather, with lots of stalls selling out.
Jay Chandler from Beachport said that there was a nice selection of stalls and Deb Knight from Bompas, said that it was a bit slow earlier in the morning but after 9.30am it kicked off with a rush on food and coffees. Jenny Wisby said that she loves the Beachport Market because it is always so well organised and Krystal Prior loves that there are so many stalls and so much room to walk around them.
Celine and her husband Dume are in Beachport to help create a sculpture track which will link Beachport with their home town La Ferte in France. Local artists have been invited to work with them as well as Beachport Primary School Students.
The Beachport Market Day is organised by the Beachport District Development Association (BDDA) and has been going for approximately 15 years, with funds raised being used for community projects, like digitizing the Beachport Cinema.
