Country and city mingle at this monthly, dog-friendly market on the third Sunday of each month at Porters Plainland Hotel, run by Chantel Jackson since 2018. Open from 7 am, the market is focused on locally made, grown, created, and handmade products. There is free children’s face painting, giant lawn games, and sessional pony rides. Enjoy fresh farm produce from growers such as Tallegalla Fresh (Veggies), Dad Farm Pickles & Chutneys, Forever Blooming flowers, Lindas Rosella Jams, Heavenly Handmade Soaps, and Cyclone Organic Drinks. Purchase from Kirsty’s Bird Sanctuary and Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre to help local wild animals. Stay on for lunch at the 120-year-old, family-run for three generations, Porters Plainland Hotel for the hearty country fare. Porters Plainland Hotel is halfway between Brisbane and Toowoomba on the Warrego Highway. Just one hour west of Brisbane. You can’t miss the giant windmill and the timber pub.
Make sure you stock up at Shulte’s Meat Tavern. It is just on the other side of the highway and easily accessed via an underground walkway.
Country charm, friendly smiles, and face painting options abound.
