Supporting the Community and Beyond
Since 2006, the Berowra Community Markets have proved to be a very popular community event.
The first Saturday of every month, sees stallholders gather from the wider Hornsby area to sell their home made wares, foods, arts, crafts and trash and treasure. Many stallholders are family and community groups. A wide variety of new and used goods are on offer and the Markets have proved popular for some folk who opt for a car boot sale at the Markets, instead of holding a garage sale.
All money raised from the Stallholders’ rent ($30 per stall) is donated to a non profit agency or charity in the area and beyond. Each month at the markets, information in the form of brochures and books on Mental Health and other community concerns are also freely available.
In addition to the stalls a BBQ breakfast and lunch is available as well as delicious morning teas which often include scones straight from the oven. Many folk come simply to browse around the stalls and indulge in a cuppa with friends. Come along and join the happy regulars for a homemade morning tea or tasty BBQ breakfast or lunch. Plenty of bargains for all including children’s toys, books, puzzles, baby items, honey, plants and seeds, flowers, jewellery, ceramics, cards and bric-a-brac.
