THE Rotary Club of Orange’s Christmas markets on Sunday set shoppers in the right direction as the festive season countdown continued.
Almost 3000 people walked through the gates during the day to take advantage of the 79 stalls, braving the hot sun.
Market co-ordinator John Templeman said cold drinks were in high demand.
“It was quite busy [on Sunday] morning, but the heat kept people away in the afternoon,” he said.
Kris Lear, of 8aesthetix in Cudal, was one of the stallholders – the Anson Street School art therapist designs skateboards, limiting the artwork to eight boards.
“I wanted to do something that was a bit eclectic and if I made a profit, put the money towards youth-based projects,” he said.
“I want to inspire youth to be unique and artistic.”
