It seems fairly likely that the Queen would want folk to celebrate her birthday with good food, wine and company.

Cargo will provide the location this Monday with its village-market popping up from 10am-3pm.

There will be about five food stalls will set up at the Cargo Village Green, to accompany the bar and live performers.

Cowra singer Lusi Austin is providing entertainment free of charge, with donation buckets collecting for Beyondblue.

Market committee member Kathy Wicks said there’s plenty of entertainment for children to enjoy too.

The little ones should be happy with a jumping castle, face painting and merry go round to keep them busy.

Stalls will serve Cambodian, Vietnamese and Greek food, as well as a Cargo sheep farmer’s lamb sausages with mint jelly.

A local blacksmith, David Walker will give demonstrations on tool sharpening.

Chris Mills will show how to whittle a spoon from wood and there will be stalls selling everything from handmade leather goods, to felt garments.

More than 700 people attended the market last year.
