The markets are held every Sunday in the historical village of Old Petrie Town. They have a working blacksmith on site, fire brigade museum, working steam engines, pottery studio, wood fired bakery, lolly shop, craft stalls, books and records, plants, jams, fruit and veg, antiques and bric a brac.
When we first started going to this market the lolly shop made everything on site. They had candy stretching demos several times a day. A few years ago the ladies retired and everything changed.
Today we decided to have a wander around the grounds and look in at the community garden. It looks great, lovely and green, everything growing in a rambling sort of fashion.
A very large Moreton Bay Fig - that's Tony standing in the base of the trunk, not sure how old it is as I forgot to look at the sign
This raised bed is decorated with pieces of pottery and terracotta faces made I think by the artists from the pottery studio
This is my style of garden, flowing and rambling, I just love it!
Hope you had a lovely weekend
