After a spectacular comeback in September, the Forbes Rotary Ipomoea markets are ready to run again this coming Saturday.

Market holders enjoyed beautiful Spring weather for their return after COVID closure, and Sue-anne Nixon said 22 stall holders had already booked in for the October event in anticipation.

From preserves to knitted toys, t-shirts, hand-made soaps and plants, the Rotary markets have an amazing range.

Proceeds to the organisers are used for Rotary projects, including those Rotary Ipomoea supports right here in Forbes.

The markets are on at Lions Park on beautiful Lake Forbes from 8am to 12.30pm on Saturday, October 10.

There's plenty of space to stay COVID-safe with physical distancing and Rotary thanks community members for their cooperation at the September event.

The monthly markets will continue in November and December this year, as the Christmas Tree Festival won't run.
