Undercover stalls at Troppo Markets draw a crowd

IT WAS a wet and windy weekend but that was no issue for those undercover at the Mount Pleasant Centre for the monthly Troppo Treasure Markets.

Stall holders said it was a little quieter than usual but there were still hundreds of folks checking out the wares on offer.

The fresh produce stalls were doing a roaring trade as people stocked up on farm- grown fruit and veges.

It was a real family affair with parents bringing the kids to keep them entertained amongst the stalls and play on the jumping castle.

The markets are held every second Sunday of the month, with stall holders looking forward to the next one, after Easter, when they say trade really picks up.
