Artisan Market

Bathurst has embraced the Artisan Market craze over the last couple of years.  They are only held a few times a year, so are still something special to look forward to.  The latest one was on the same day as the Bathurst 200 party down by the river, so we made a real day of it, being out and about enjoying all that was on offer.

Musical entertainment was provided by a local choir.  They were having a great deal of fun, especially when singing “Like an Egyptian”.

The markets are held in the forecourt of the Library and Art Gallery, so we also took the opportunity of visiting the art gallery display held in conjunction with the Bathurst 200 festivities.  No photos allowed but they were all works of art owned by the gallery.  They really do have some treasures.

It is so good to see markets of this type.  There really are some clever people in our region.

It looks like a great market. I always enjoy artisan markets and love that they showcase local artists work. It would be a good one to visit before Christmas to stock up on gifts.
