Moyston Easter Market was ‘best ever’, organisers say as visitors from far and wide attend

Moyston’s Easter Market had visitors from far and wide flocking to the town’s oval on Saturday to search for a bargain, fine food and entertainment.

45 stall holders saw good sales from homemade and home-grown goodies, arts and crafts by local artists, and a selection of preloved items.

There was a free Easter Egg Trail for children and a gourmet barbecue run by the Football Netball Club or Devonshire Tea with traditional or Lemon Myrtle scones at the Pavillion.

Moyston, credited as being the birthplace of Aussie Rules Football, also hosted a  Longest Football Kicking competition.

Moyston Progress Association president Max McLean said the event went really well.

“It was the best market we have had,” he said

“It had great attendance with about 50/50 between tourists and people from the region.

“We had a lot of people from Melbourne coming in. The weather was made to order; it was a lovely fine day.”
