Fingers crossed you haven’t already done your grocery shopping because it’s markets, markets, and more markets in the region this week.

It’s all been on and off again for the past few months due to COVID-19, but life is returning to normal. Chiefly, you’ll be able to buy fresh food and handcrafted goodies in Tilba, Murrumbateman, and Binalong this weekend, before clearing everything else out of your house for a virtual and in-person garage sale. Unearth your inner potter in Murrumbateman and enjoy local musicians at the Tallagandra Hill Winery.

Santa has also come early to Cobargo and is willing to take your pets on his knee for photos.
