Organisers are confident of a big crowd at next weekend’s bi-annual Denial Bay Jetty Market.

The popular event will take place on Sunday, October 22 at the Denial Bay foreshore reserve near the Thiselton Way carpark from 9:30am to the early afternoon.

Denial Bay Progress Association secretary Brenton Niemz is looking forward to the event.

“The preparations for our spring Jetty Market are going well,” he said.

“Our dedicated committee works extremely hard to put our markets on twice a year.”

He said the committee was still taking bookings for stalls this weekend, however expected there would be up to 40 traders on Sunday.

A range of traders will be selling items such as plants, homemade baked goods, international cuisine, books, bric-a-brac, clothing, candles, beauty products and home decor.

Mr Niemz said a sunny weather forecast should help the occasion.

“Our markets attract hundreds of people out to the picturesque surrounds of the Denial Bay foreshore reserve area,” he said.

“The weather forecast is looking good at this stage and this usually attracts larger crowds to enjoy a day in the beautiful spring sun.

“The Denial Bay Progress Association will be running a barbecue tent as a part of the annual fundraising efforts, including food, hot and cold drinks and baked goods.”

Mr Niemz said the association was appreciative of the continued support of the District Council of Ceduna in ensuring the area is well-prepared for the twice-yearly markets.
