THE GREEN TEAM
Thanks to the hard work of the BCA Green Team, the northern and southern entrances to our village are ablaze with King Alfred daffodils. Take the time to pull over and have a walk around these very impressive plantings, but please do not pick them. There are a few crocus still in bloom as well.
BUNDANOON MAKERS MARKET
Bundanoon Public School, Bundanoon First Sunday of the Month
Bundanoon Soldiers’ Memorial Hall Third Sunday of the Month
OUR LOCAL MARKET IS ADAPTING AND GROWING
From September 2023, the Bundanoon Makers Market will move back to its original location at the Bundanoon Soldiers’ Memorial Hall for the 3rd Sunday of the month ONLY. The market will remain at Bundanoon Public School on the 1st Sunday of the month until further notice. To celebrate the market coming back into the central hub of town we’re introducing a new initiative for our community, Backyard Produce, which will be located in the upper supper room of the hall on the 3rd Sunday market, beginning on Sunday, 17 September.
Backyard Produce allows small-time growers, from kids to seniors, to sell what they grow and harvest at home. There will be no set stall fee. A space will be supplied in the supper room, along with tables, tablecloths, and baskets. In return, a small percentage of whatever you earn is taken. Backyard Produce will operate on an honesty system. Its aim is to help supply our community with fresh produce – and provide an incentive to get into that veggie patch.
To book a space please contact Lisa on 0411 297 963 or email [email protected]
Start planting today!
The Markets are held on the first and third Sundays of every month (except January) 8.30am to 2pm. The Bundanoon Makers Market is a fabulously friendly community event, crammed with arts, crafts, live music, delicious food, fresh produce and handmade goods. There is plenty of fresh local produce, breads, eggs and honey, plus a glorious selection of homemade cakes, jams, chutneys and sauces. Delicious food stalls serve up fare with an international flavour, including a range of ready-made take-home meals, and of course a coffee van for your morning caffeine hit!
So, come discover the handmade, homemade, bakers, growers and artists and enjoy the buzzy, eclectic atmosphere of the Bundanoon Makers Market in one of the Southern Highlands most picturesque villages, less than two hours drive from Sydney. Have a browse, discover a bargain, taste from delicious local artisanal providores and international food stalls. There is easy street parking within a short walking distance.

In the tradition of Candy Cane Lane, Bundanoon will again be bedecked by cheerful knitted Christmas decorations. Local yarn-bomber @Kitty_Knitter and her crew will bring a new installation of Licorice Allsort inspired colours to the village centre. Twenty-two local knitters have been quietly working on this project over the past few months and they hope that their efforts will put a festive smile on your face.
BUNDANOON CHRISTMAS FOOD DRIVE
SATURDAY 9 & SUNDAY 10 DECEMBER, 9.00 A.M. – 12.00 NOON
COLLECTION POINT – Supper Room, Soldiers’ Memorial Hall
Whilst it’s generally considered to be a lean Christmas because of the cost of living pressures, many of the local charities are reporting that their pantries are bare so those in real need may go without this Christmas. To assist local charities, two local Bundanoon residents have offered to put on a Christmas Food Drive here in Bundanoon.
Items in need include long-life pantry stock items such as long-life milk, flour, sugar, pasta and rice, tea and coffee, cereals, crackers, and biscuits, tinned foods including fruit, vegetables, and meals. As well as nappies, nappy wipes, sanitary products, long-life and baby food, full-size shampoo and conditioner, laundry detergent, and washing-up liquid.
Donors are requested to deliver the goods in bags that can be kept for transport of the items.
Further information can be obtained by emailing Jonathan Melrose-Rae at [email protected]
