Samford Valley Markets
Yesterday we got up early to go to the Samford Valley Markets, we had seen earlier in the week that the market is on every second Saturday of the month.
The markets are just wonderful they are small but the charm of country living is all around. We met so many wonderful stall holders some of the ones that stood out was the lady who we bought honey from she only lives over the fence where the markets are held, she told us bee stories and she has been selling honey at the markets since 1988, incredible.
Down a few stalls we met these really nice little girls they were selling homemade Lemonade, of course we had to buy some, they attend the markets every month they were really excited telling us the money goes towards clothes shopping, so cute and so entrepreneurial of them.
We walked around the markets listening to the folk music in the background, the markets are small but great value to visit because the whole town comes alive after the markets we wandered the streets, the restaurants were busily working. I had to do my mandatory stop over at the Samford Antique Centre and it did not dissapoint.
We finished the morning with a bit of play at the playgrounds and a drive around the valley.
Why don't you check it out?
