Hawkesbury Veggie Barter Trade Meet

Do you have some veggies and items you are willing to barter and trade? Visit the Hawkesbury Earthcare Centre for the Hawkesbury Veggie Barter Trade Meet on Saturday, 23 March 2024.

Bring your families, friends, and kids along for an exciting event of finding the best bargain. The trade will run from 10:00 AM to midday, with the actual bartering and trading to begin at 11:00 AM.
