A Port Fairy market is counting down the days until it can welcome its community back when stage three coronavirus restrictions are eased.
The Port Fairy Community House market, along with Port Fairy Show committee's farmer's market, won't run during the second introduction of a lockdown.
Listen to the latest episode of our weekly podcast The Booletin and Beyond:
"We are hoping to open again in six-weeks time in September with our next market expected on the 26th," Mrs McGoldrick said.
"We have changed the way we operate. We have social distancing and other protocols in place so we can open safely. We have got all those ready to go to open straight away."
Mrs McGoldrick said the market had to close because most of its 30 stall holders, which were handmade goods sellers, could not operate due to the restrictions.
The fortnightly market, which runs on the second and fourth Saturday of each month and is a major fundraiser for Port Fairy Community House, last closed on March 25 before reopening on June 14.
Mrs McGoldrick said PFCH is hoping to run a virtual market for Father's Day, similar to what it did earlier in the year for Mother's Day.
The Fresh Market Warrnambool will continue to go ahead but will only have food stalls and have social distancing and mask wearing protocols in place.
The Warrnambool Undercover Weekly Sunday Market, due to restrictions, is also not running for the entirety of stage three lockdown.
