Oxley Bush Market

1250682828-bush_market_2The 39th Annual Oxley Bush Market will be held this year on Saturday 3 November 2018. Staged at the historic Oxley Shire Hall (1875), the market is timed to coincide with the Wangaratta Festival of Jazz and Blues.

Thousands of visitors flock to Oxley for this annual event and wander among the 175 stalls boasting a variety of home-made, home-produced, home-grown and new items. The event attracts stallholders from throughout the North East, as well as all corners of Victoria and southern New South Wales. Over and above the enormous range of high quality goods on sale, visitors will be delighted by the variety of gourmet food on offer, the buskers, the rides and just the sheer activity and vibrancy of the event.

The market also has a fantastic raffle with over 30 prizes donated by local businesses from Wangaratta, the Milawa Gourmet and King Valley regions, ranging from accommodation vouchers to food and wine hampers. Please come along to the market and help support our local community by buying a ticket. Money raised recently has helped us to install playground and picnic facilities at the Oxley Memorial Park.

The Oxley market is valued for the contribution it makes to many local fundraising groups, including schools, kindergartens, service clubs, fire brigades, the Cancer Council and the Royal Children’s Hospital Auxiliary.

A CLEAN and GREEN EVENT
We are continuing to ask our stall holders and shoppers to ‘Reduce, Reuse and Recycle’. We have halved our overall waste volume since we started our clean and green event campaign in 2006. We hope to continue to improve these figures this year, so please help us where you can.
How can you help as a stall holder?
 Reduce your use of packaging for your products and make sure that ALL packaging is recyclable. When asking for plastic containers or cups make sure they have a recycle symbol with a Code 1 to 7 on the bottom of the product, as this means it is recyclable.
 Encourage shoppers to use reusable bags and baskets, provide paper bags or boxes as alternatives and pack goods with other market purchases. Always ask ‘do you need a bag?’ before providing one as a last resort.
