GALLERY: Uber Markets shine in summer heat

THE first Uber Markets for the year saw a great turnout of stallholders rock up despite the forecast of sweltering temperatures.

Market organiser Christie Shepherd said he was pleased with the results.

"It's been pretty good,” she said.

"The hot weather may have kept some people away but we've had a steady stream of people coming through all day.

"But it's really pleasing to see so many stallholders show up, last year our January market was pretty quiet so this is good to see.”

Mrs Shepherd said a couple of new additions kept the crowds interested.

"We've had a couple of new stalls join us today,” she said.

"Story Book Cakes are here and Nick's Mobile Fruit and Veg Barn has been popular as well.

"All the old favourites are here as well, the Lions are manning the barbecue, our bookseller is here as well as heaps of others.”

The weather was so hot, Mrs Shepherd had to deflate the jumping castle for a while to let the canvas cool down.

The market will return to Leslie Park on the second Saturday of every month in 2018.
