Market day

I was back at the Apollo Bay market this morning. It was only my second time back after a long break for Winter. It was kind of sunny and cloudy, warm and cool, breezy and not breezy! A kind of mixed up weather morning.
It was good to see quite a few stallholders coming back, and we had reasonable crowds too.

Matt the bicycle smoothie man. He is a tourist attraction on his own, pedalling his bike to drive his blender to make great smoothies and fruit juices.

(I had mango, watermelon, and orange juice this morning. Yum.)

Ellen and her amazing scented candles.

Judy from Otway Herbs Nursery, one of the founders of this community market.
There are many more fantastic local products at this market - jewellery, pottery, photography, plants, body products, soaps, cakes and jams....all handmade, and all produced by residents and property owners from the immediate region.
It's very much a seasonal market this one, but I'm very happy to be able to be here again when I'm not travelling up to Melbourne.
