A small village of gazebos pops up on Piper Street in Kyneton on the second Saturday of every month.

Surrounding the Duck Duck Goose and Larder delicatessen, the stalls offer a wide variety of food, produce and crafts for the Rotary Club of Kyneton’s community market.

Items up for grabs range from bric a brac to art, clothes, plants, wine, honey, egg and bacon sandwiches and sweets.

Vendors come from all over Victoria to be part of the market alongside local producers. David Hinrichsen from Delicious Delicacies in Castlemaine attends the market to sell his handmade chocolate truffles.

The Rotary club contributes the markets’ proceeds to its local community projects. Last year travel and accomodation for club members accompanying students on a schoolies alternative in Vietnam were funded by the markets.

The market kicks off at 9am and continues on until about 2pm. The next one will take place on Saturday, February 10.

To inquire about hosting a stall at the market contact the Kyneton Community Market Facebook page.

The Rotary Club of Kyneton is also celebrating its 50th birthday next month on the evening of Monday, February 19 at Kyneton Bowling Club. For details and tickets contact John Wells on 0428 171 195.
