Therese and Vaughn Skuthorpe checking out the market
We expect August days to be warm with blue skies, and perhaps a sight breeze, but the day we went to the Wednesday market at Silky Oak Tea House at Goomboorian was just the opposite – cold and wet. However this didn’t spoil the fun.
The market was held undercover and featured a roaring fire in an open fireplace, so we were able to enjoy our coffee and scones in comfort. The lunch menu also looked pretty tempting. And of course the place is licensed. Another great place to come with your friends.
The stalls carried a good range of fresh produce in season, as well as preserves, cordials and some clothes and jewellery. As the rain lifted there was a chance to enjoy the pleasant garden area, with its many tables tucked away in corners. All in all a very enjoyable morning.
Meanwhile the jam makers in our group are preparing to stock up on strawberries on our next day out. September: Tuesday 6, morning coffee at the RB Surf Club; Thursday 8, pick your own strawberries at the strawberry farm and cafe on Tagigan Rd, Goomboorian, 10am.
