Bargains galore at Carter Bros. Fruit & Veg. Silvan. 😊

The Valley Twilight Market is on this FRIDAY from 3.30pm - 8pm at Yarra Valley Ecoss. There will be 40 stallholders at the market selling their delicious produce and handmade goods. It’s going to be a great afternoon/evening. Hope you can make it. 😊Our feature story for The Valley Twilight Market this week is a super special one so do check it out. We are getting the personal story behind 'The Valley Market' from Leanne Arvanitakis-Hall, the lady who brings events and markets in our community into thriving successes and has kept us all safe and nourished throughout the turbulence of 2020! We are so grateful for ALL she continues to do. Here you go.......

It was Friday the 13th of March 2020 at the Warburton Summer Produce Market when it felt like everything just started crashing down around me. I was running the market and there was a big storm coming in. Marquees were blowing over and we were trying to get everything covered before the rain hit.
Chelsea was calling me to say we need to decide whether to cancel Ecotopia, the news came out that the River Folk Festival was cancelled that night, and I watched a whole stream of Festivals, Events and Gigs all cancel indefinitely.
I literally ended up in tears. It was the last Summer Produce Market for 2020.
People wanted to know where to buy their produce now The WSPM had finished... so, the following week Silvertine BD Farm started selling produce from their Market gate at ECOSS. It all happened organically. A few other stalls asked if they could come along, and from there the seeds of The Valley Market were born.
I then started to come along each Friday to support the stallholders to comply to Covid Restrictions, putting out hand sanitiser and marking out social distancing on the ground. (I became known as the social distancing police:)
Simultaneously there was a global panic buying frenzy! The Market became very popular as the need to support local became more and more evident. The toilet paper isles were bare, and the shelves were basically empty.
It felt more important than ever to support our local food producers and businesses. It was an ideal time to focus on localising our economy.
The Market has been a lifeline for our community during this time of isolation, for so many it was the highlight of their week. As restrictions tightened it was the one place people could go out and do their shopping in a safe open air environment.
As the Event Coordinator at ECOSS and The Warburton Summer Produce Market Coordinator, it worked perfectly to marry the two. Hence The Valley Market at ECOSS was born. The Valley Market has successfully run weekly at ECOSS, and in addition we will run a monthly 'The Valley Market Warburton' instead of the Warburton Summer Produce Market. As things open up and we go back to our busy lives, I hope the community continue to support our local food producers. It feels so important for so many reasons.
I am really looking forward to 'The Valley Twilight Market' this Friday 3.30pm-8pm where we will can now be a little more relaxed, hang out in a socially distant safe way & once again have live entertainment with 40 fantastic stalls!

About Adrian Berry

I moved to Warburton in the Yarra Valley with my family in the middle of 2015. It was freezing and rained for the first 3 weeks and I wondered what I'd gotten in to. Since then I have fallen in love with the Valley, which is not hard to do, due to it's beauty and vibrant community.
