Wishing everyone a safe, prosperous and happy New Lunar Year! Bringing in the year of the Ox and the lunar new year is celebrated by Malaysian, Vietnamese, Chinese and may Asian cultures that make up the rich fabric of multicultural Victoria and the heritage of many of market visitors and sellers.
Please be aware we will be closed on #ValentinesDay this Sunday, 14 February 2021, due to the latest Stage 4 ‘circuit-breaker’ COVID19 restrictions announced yesterday (12 February 2021).
All stall holders have had their bookings cancelled for the 14th of February. Refunds are be processed automatically and credited to the account that paid the booking with the reference of ‘Rotary Club of Balwyn’. Banks can take between 3-5 days for the transaction to appear in account records.
By avoiding large gatherings, masking up, washing hands, social distancing and following the latest health advice, we will all get to the other side of this in the best shape possible.
We are indeed in this together. Every single Rotary volunteer, stall holder and visitor is impacted by Covid-19. And the millions of visitors’ parents, partners, children, grandparents, friends, work colleagues and even staff at their local coffee shop. We are all at risk and, like you, we will do our bit to keep each other safe.
Update: 1 August 2020:
Due to Covid-19 transmission rates and increasing mandatory public health measures in Victoria, the Camberwell Sunday Market remains closed.
FAQs: • Will the market be open this weekend? Sorry, no. • Will the market be open next weekend? No, sorry. • When will the market reopen? Unknown at this point, but we will reopen when safe to do so. • Can I book a stall? Sorry, no. The stall booking system will remain closed until a reopening date is determined. • How will I know when the market is reopening? Watch our social media and website for updates.
We know that for many people the Camberwell Market is an important part of Easter Sunday. In years gone past, we would receive messages from people returning home for Easter and just wanting to ‘make sure we’d be open.’
Often coming from overseas or interstate, the Market was part of their family Easter Sunday tradition: it meant being ‘home’.
So from our family to yours, we miss you too and, although we are all in locked down this year, we’re pretty sure next Easter will be a ripper.
Happy Easter and we hope to be seeing you in a few months time when it’s safe to meet again. Take care.
