Rain good for ducks not Drake

Boundary Street markets on opening day

A great market atmosphere adds a new destination to shopping in Boundary St

Boundary St markets organiser Fred Drake is praying for a break in the rain as the markets enter their third weekend.

Last week’s high temperature and humidity saw crowds thin out a little in the afternoon but the stall holders remained optimistic, assuring Westender that “markets take time to build” and that “no-one controls the weather – not even Fred!”

The $3 parking on the Absoe property in Mollison St is a big drawcard for punters and assuming the rain clouds do break as the bureau predicts it could be a great place to do the Christmas shopping.

The markets are open from 7:00am until 2:00pm both Saturday and Sunday.
