Markets need locals to keep them going

THE township of Ballandean has been entertained by the twilight markets for two years now, and organisers want to keep it going.

President of the Ballandean Hall Jason Nash encourages locals to come along to this weekend's markets, and even consider giving selling a go.

"We sometimes have 15-20 stalls, we're hoping for about 7-8 this weekend,” he said.

"The first stall anyone has is free.”

After the markets, local band Last Days will be performing a show.

"They do rock and roll, country a bit of blues. They're an all around great pub band,” Mr Nash said.

At the markets, there will be plenty of hot food for sale, including steak burgers and chips along with a bar operating.

The markets have a variety of sellers including a cake maker, a wood turner, teddy bear makers, jewellers, patch makers and people selling various household goods.

"Any ideas are welcome as well,” Mr Nash said.

"We need store holders, we need people to come and do it and support the locals.

"We're just doing it to keep the halls alive - we have awesome halls around the area and we need people to support them or they'll become a thing of the past.”
