Tomerong Markets are back.

July 17, 2020

Tomerong School of Arts has had a facelift. The historic hall looks beautiful and certainly doesn’t look as though it’s nearing its centenary birthday. The Hall is now open for business and they are celebrating with a reopening of Tomerong markets on Saturday 18th July between 8 am and 1.30 pm. 

Tomerong Hall has been closed for all activities due to COVID-19 restrictions and the management committee has taken advantage of this closure to utilise funds received from the NSW Community Building Partnership program to paint the hall inside and out, and carry out other urgently needed repairs. Saturday 18th July will be a grand re-opening of the Hall, as well as the first market in many months, and visitors and residents alike are invited to visit the markets next Saturday and see the “new look” Hall for themselves.

Robyn Sedger, the Acting President of Tomerong School of Arts committee, says she would like to reassure everyone that community safety is of the upmost importance to the hall committee.  With community wellbeing in mind, a COVID-19 Safety Plan has been developed so that everyone’s market shopping experience will be a safe one. 

“Things will look a little different from our previous markets due to current safety requirements”, Ms Sedger said. This includes having separate hall entry and exits, readily available hand sanitiser, cashless transactions where possible and other details which are now becoming the norm for all of us in this new Covid world.

Tomerong Hall has had a great response from market stall holders and they are looking forward to welcoming back their regulars selling organic food, great coffee and snacks, delicious pies and dips, jams and chutneys, natural skin care products, plants, hand crafted items, bric-a-brac, jewellery and many, many more too numerous to mention.  According to Ms Sedger, they are also hoping that Tomerong Rural Fire Service will be there to make some great sausage sangas.
