Saturday, 13 April, Johns River Country Markets

We have a very wide and varied range of stalls at the markets ranging fresh local fruit and vegetables to beautifully created handmade arts and crafts. Our location is in the central part of Johns River and the perfectly flat recreation oval makes walking around the markets very easy and pleasurable. We also cater for the little ones with a new playground, which is covered to protect them from exposure to the sun. Our village has now been bypassed with minimal traffic passing through, which adds that extra level of safety for children playing in the playground. From the markets perspective, there is an added aire of peace and quite so you can relax whilst shopping or enjoying our world famous Devonshire teas and coffees.

Our markets are called the ‘friendly markets’ (we hear this from our stallholders and visitors). We don’t charge high market rents for stallholder sites and our food/refreshments are reasonably priced. If you are interested in becoming a stallholder at the markets, please click here to send us an email about yourself and what you would like to promote on your stall. We will come back to you within 48 hours with details on the costs and requirements for becoming a stall holder. We are always looking for new stallholders.
