Rotary Club of Forest Hill

 Blackburn Art & Craft Market. 9.am to 1pm

Loads of extra crowds of shoppers at our first market back in front of the Blackburn Station on South Parade.  Train for the kids to ride, face painting, footy stars, baby animals for the kids to play with, a few music groups.... and the SUN was shining.   Many stall holders told us how happy they were with the new site and the shoppers were clearly happy.   We sold out of sausages twice and kept having to buy more.
The club, local shop keepers, shoppers and stallholders are happy to be back in South Parade. See video link on You Tube.

 On the second Saturday morning each month (except January), the Rotary Club of Forest Hill stages the Blackburn Station Craft Market at the Blackburn Station Village Shopping Centre, Blackburn.   9am to 1pm.

We are always looking to grow the market with new stalls and attractions and anyone interested in being involved can contact the market coordinator, John, (click here to email the coordinator) or telephone  0448 149 106, or 0412 294 940.

Ray is ready to cook onions while Don cooks the sausages before handing them on to Bill who keeps them hot until sold.   They go like hot cakes!! 

The market is a favourite browsing place for many Blackburn people who enjoy the Village shopping atmosphere, the stalls, the Rotary sausage sizzle, the adjacent car parking, and the music from the jazz band that often appears. The market has a range of stalls selling goods such as plants, soaps, jewellery, cards, clothing and the famous Rotary Sausage Sizzle!  Many of the stallholders have been attending the market for years and are well known to the Village's shoppers.

Forest Hill Rotary were asked by local traders to operate the market to benefit the Blackburn Village and its customers, the stallholders.   Local community service projects are funded from the money the we raise.

We regularly check the temperature of the cooked sausages to meet food standards.   Ron, Bill and Stuart
