It was a beautiful morning in the Lockyer Valley that saw locals flock to buy produce, homemade gifts, arts and crafts and books.

A range of homemade jams, chutneys and honey was also on offer, but plants seemed to be also a very popular purchase following recent rainfall in the region.

Many locals used the opportunity to relax with a cup of coffee and catch up with friends, relatives and neighbours.

Live music kept attendees entertained while local car enthusiasts were in their element with a range of classic vehicles from the Lockyer Antique Motor Association on display from Model-T Fords, Holden station wagons, MG convertibles and Jaguar saloons.
