Broken Hill Community Markets

Event runs from 8:00 AM to 12:30 PM


Broken Hill Community Markets occur on the second Saturday morning of each month except in December when they have a Twilight Market after the Christmas Pageant. Regular stalls offer delicious food like freshly cooked sausage and onion sangers, steak sandwiches, Cora's Asian food, Carol's gluten-free and dairy-free cakes, Liz's handmade chocolates, the Sea Scouts' egg and bacon rolls plus doughnuts, with Pauline's homemade cakes, jams, pickles and chutneys. Alain the 'French Foodie Frog' sells his imported gourmet duck dishes from south western France, and Tippy sells delicious Thai curry puffs and satay chicken wings. The browsers can check out the stalls full of old wares and collectibles, art and craft stalls like Janet's 'Art from the Heart', Josie's hand-made cards, minerals from Broken Hill and Julie's hand made jewellery. Occasional stalls offer Menindee fruit and vegetables, quandong sauces and pies, kids' clothing and plants. The Saltbush Evangelical Church crew will engage and entertain you. The Markets are a short walk from Broken Hill's main Argent Street; the Centre for Community has the murals at 200 Beryl Street opposite Aruma Lodge. The Community Market is held in the grounds of the Centre, and in Sturt Park during the warm weather.
