  • Armidale Farmers Market (Curtis Park) - 9:30am to 11:30pm Sunday March 10th 2024

The members of The Parson & The Peas have decided not to play at these markets again unless better protection can be provided and artist fees are increased to a reasonable level. Thank you to the generous & appreciative support of the public!!"
