Sunday Pakenham Market
The sunday market at Pakenham racecourse was pretty much a waste of time. I only sold aound 30 dozen eggs so it would have been more productive to stay on the farm and work!
But it was worth trying to see if any of the old customers who used to go to the Cardinia Ranges Farmers' Market went along to this one. They didn't - which clearly demonstrates the difference between Farmers' Markets and trash and treasure markets. Dedicated food markets are always going to attract customers who like food rather than people just trying to kill a couple of hours or looking for a second hand clock or electric frypan.
Won't be doing that again!!!
