We regret to advise that the Forrest Lovely and Local Market on 13 June is CANCELLED, in light of the increasing COVID-19 risk.

The Forrest Lovely and Local Market will take the place of the famous SoupFest just for this year, with a variety of hot food, local produce, art and crafts on offer.

It will be smaller than the SoupFest, and back at the old venue in town at the Forrest Public Hall, catering for runners in the RunForrest event and their supporters as well as locals and visitors making the most of the Queen’s Birthday long weekend.

Funds raised will go towards maintenance of the Forrest Public Hall, Men’s Shed, Forrest Learning Centre, Lions and other community groups.

Stalls so far include:

  • SoupFest soup kitchen
  • Sausage sizzle
  • Devonshire teas, coffee, slices
  • Hare Krishna vegetarian food
  • Hot potatoes
  • European BBQ
  • Cordials
  • Rocky road, tea cakes, marshmallows
  • Hand-made, hand-painted hemp and cotton clothing
  • Local art, crafts
  • Skincare, soaps, teas
  • Silk and woolen embroidered cushion covers
