Centreway Farmer’s Market

On Saturday, 24  November, I  had the privilege of attending the very first farmers market held at the Centreway in Keilor East, famous for being the birthplace of JB Hi Fi, where company founder, John Barbuto, opened  his first JB Hi Fi  store in 1974. The farmers market was a wonderful  initiative of the Centreway Traders Association, which lobbied hard for  the weekend market to commence at the Centreway. The market was very successful in attracting hundreds of locals and a  range of stalls that offered fresh, organic, local and regional produce.

I was pleased to hear that the market will be coming back to the Centreway on 22 December, when  Santa will be making a special appearance. I urge all those near Keilor East to visit and see the very best of Victoria and what it has to offer.

I wish the farmers market every success  in the electorate of Niddrie and a long and successful presence at the Centreway in Keilor East.
