Don’t forget our Christmas Trading times.
As normal on Saturday the 19th of December.
We’ll have a Twilight Market from 4.00pm till 7.00pm on Tuesday, the 22nd of December.
Then the market will be closed on Saturday, the 26th of December.
We’ll reopen as normal on Saturday, the 2nd of January, 2021.
So things are back to normal on Saturday as far as eating and drinking are concerned. You can sit down or stand up, whichever you prefer!
For the foreseeable future we’ll have our COVID-19 QR sign up at every stall. It would be really good if you would register your presence at the market. You only need to so once at one of these QR code signs.
If you don’t have a smartphone, you can register your presence in writing at the log sheet at the Membership/Information Stall.
Our Covid Marshals are Gill and John Muller, though Gill may be a bit busy on Saturday, it’s the last day of trading for Southern Fleurieu Flora.
More updates about Saturday’s stallholders up soon.
After our first closure in 12 years I’m very happy to say we will be open again on Saturday.
As we are still operating under stricter Corona Virus Restrictions until December First please:
You must be seated if eating or drinking, so if you buy breakfast from Atomic Food, or Coffee or hot Pies or Pasties from the Coffee Stall, or Hot Donuts from H Kouzina Mas, you must sit down on one of the bench seats, or the chairs we will be providing around on the lawn areas to eat or drink. We’ll be spreading the chairs out so that you can still social distance appropriately.
Maintain 1.5m Social distancing.
Only touch what you intend to buy, and pick up produce with a bag.
Masks would be good, not compulsory.
Our Covid Marshal, clearly indicated in her fluro vest with a big M on the back will be helping with any enquiries, and making sure people follow the restrictions.
Tomorrow there will be the usual update of Stallholders. Everyone’s very happy to be back!
For the first time in 12 years the VHFM will not be held on this Saturday, 21/10/2020.
VHFM September Newsletter
Welcome to the resumption of the VHFM Newsletter. It’s been a while. Good things take time to bubble away and develop their character though, just like those delicious White Goat camembert style cheeses that form from the soft goat curd over five to six weeks. By the time Gerard has them for sale at Lilyarra Artisan Cheeses at the market they have matured to perfection. Hopefully the big gap in Newsletter production has the same effect!

Don’t forget the SACWA Victor Harbor Evening Branch are with us today.

A legend in his own words !😁
The South Australian Country Women’s Association Inc (SACWA) Victor Harbor Evening Branch will be here at the Victor Harbor Farmers Market Saturday 12th September 8am-12pm. They are all about friendship, learning new skills & helping our local community and meet 2nd Wednesday each month @ 7.30pm, CWA Hall.
The SACWA has been serving the community since 1929. They are not for profit, non party political and non sectarian. The organisation is made up of volunteers who work to promote the welfare and conditions of life for women and children, of all ages, whether in the city or country.
Their slogan is ‘Sharing And Caring With Action’. Sharing involves service and the giving of time, talents, efforts and finance. What is given in service is the road to what is gained personally. Caring involves friendship, tolerance and understanding of others.
The provision of welfare is important to SACWA, and they feel that social issues need constant monitoring and lobbying at local, state and federal levels. They also believe that education is continuous, heritage skills and history are worth preserving and leisure activities enhance the quality of life.
