There will be plenty on offer for those who venture out to the Galatea Market this weekend.

The market is being held tomorrow, 9am to 1pm, at the War Memorial Hall, Managmate Rd.

Co-organiser Karen Isemonger-Rameka says the market will be on rain or shine, with a wide variety of items for people to look at.

She says there are more than 40 stalls, mainly set up and manned by locals.


They include seedlings, plants, jewellery, art cards, homewares, garden art and bath bombs.

Karen says she loves going to markets and wanted to organise one because they rarely happen in Galatea.

"It's nice to have something in your backyard and you don't have to travel."

She says there will also be live music thanks to the Rogue Stage, who have organised for Lloyd Ackroyd and guests to perform.

"It's just a great day out, to relax and chill and get some awesome Christmas presents."

Karen says the market is also a great way to support local crafters and charities.

Their local kindergarten is doing a cafe as a fundraiser at the market, she says.

She says there are also swings and a see-saw onsite, so parents can relax and listen to the music while the children play.

Karen says she creates photos and prints to sell at the market and her co-organiser Jo Hannah sells Mist Valley Clothing there.
