WOORAGEE EASTER MARKET: Families gather among flowers

FRESH flowers, scarves and hair accessories were among the hot ticket items at yesterday’s Wooragee Easter Monday market.

Indigo Valley’s Rachael Proctor said the market had become a halfway meeting hub for many families.

“It’s great for catching up with family members,” she said.

“My mum lives in Wangaratta and we have other family in Beechworth and Wooragee.”

Her daughters Kayla, 10, and Ebony, 8, bought some chook feeders before checking out the flowers.

Mrs Proctor said the market, which attracted about 60 sites, was also about “country people supporting country folk”.

“You can feel the community vibe and everyone draws together to support the community,” she said.

Wooragee’s CFA and the local primary school were both beneficiaries of yesterday’s Easter Monday market.
