It was more than a little chilly but patrons at Wondai’s markets were keen to enjoy a small return to “almost-normal” life on Saturday morning.
The dozen stalls that booked in were spaced around Coronation Park, ensuring shoppers were practising safe social-distancing.
And hand sanitiser was offered at the main entrance to the park.
Volunteers from the Wooroolin QCWA were serving up hot soup, tea and coffee, toasted sandwiches, scones and cupcakes from inside The Studio to eager visitors keen to warm up.
On stage – a long way away from the main action – popular local duo the Stolzies were providing some live entertainment.
The Wondai Markets are organised by volunteers from the Wondai Art Gallery and curator Elaine Madill had admitted earlier she was not sure how many stalls and shoppers would turn up on Saturday.
However, she was pleased with the dozen stalls which arrived and she believed there would be even more in attendance next month.

Poppies Café will also be doing takeaway food (only for market day).
