MARKET UPDATE - COVID-19
The Rotary Club of Encounter Bay runs markets at Goolwa and Port Elliot on the first weekend and third weekend of each month with two clear objectives.
- To provide a community service by supporting small businesses and local artists
- To raise funds to support local charities, organisations, and humanitarian projects
For the moment these regular markets have been suspended due to lack of numbers to organise and supervise. The evolving Covid 19 situation also presents issues for running markets. There are also concerns about the dampness of the grounds. As soon as we are able, markets will be open once again.
The Rotary Club of Encounter Bay holds the licence to manage the Port Elliot Rotary Markets.
The market is held on the first and third Saturdays each month at Lakala Reserve, Young Street, Port Elliot, a pleasant location within walking distance of the main street, which boasts a lake with ducks and other bird life. There is also a small children's playground and barbecue facilities. Additional markets are held across the busy summer months.
The market is a typical country market with plenty of fresh local produce on offer as well as a good mix of other goods such as, bric-a-brac, collectables, plants, books, hats, crafts, homemade pickles, jams and relishes. You can also sit and relax whilst enjoying a delicious cappuccino for you morning tea break or maybe a sausage from the barbecue and a soft drink for lunch. There is something here for everyone.
