Locals in the market for fresh fruit, vegies

Organisers say more than 5000 people visited the markets in Jindalee over the first three weekends in March, prompting a decision last month to continue holding them every weekend.

Satterley Property Group�s community development co-ordinator Lyndsey Stoney said the markets had been well received by the local community.

�We were blown away with how popular the markets were and how Perth�s north coast community responded to having their very own farmers markets,� Ms Stoney said.

�Stallholders are continuing to fill up their trucks with more produce every week to keep up with the demand.�

Paul Ashbolt, from the Leederville Farmers Market, which has been co-ordinating the markets throughout March, said it was great to be able to bring the tastes and sounds from the thriving inner city Leederville Farmers Market to Eden Beach.

�The first three weekends have been terrific and we look forward to having a short break over Easter, before returning permanently every Saturday from April 11 from 8am to 12.30pm.�

The market is located on the corner of Reflection Boulevard and Midsummer Avenue, Jindalee.
