SUNDAY MARKET, BUNDOORA

There are many Sunday markets all over Melbourne, usually held in the morning and having all sorts of things on offer to buy. Trash & Treasure stalls, food kiosks, fresh produce, clothing, footwear, kitchenware, garden needs and tools, plants, etc, etc. Not to forget the entertainment: Buskers of all kinds - musicians, magicians, living statues, singers.

This market is regularly held in the car park of Latrobe University in Bundoora, rain or shine! The rain will not deter most stall holders and quite a few people will venture out in order to purchase what they need (and often what they don't), even in rainy weather!

This post is part of the Weekend Reflections meme hosted by James.
The rain won't keep the customers away, although admittedly on a fine day, it is quite crowded

One type of merchandise that actually likes the rain!
Look into the waters and reflect...

  9. A great series of shots Nick - especially like the last one with the fabulous capture of rings and raindrops, together with the submerged leaves that look like goldfish! Thanks for sharing and for visiting my blog. Wishing you a great week ahead.

  10. the rain didn't dampen the people's spirit. I went to the Thais Songkran, a bit like your market.

  14. I would make a beeline to the old Turkish women's stall. If that is any indication this looks like an interesting market.

  15. If it rains here on market days, very few people turn out!
