In 2002, Pollyanne was approached by Hawkesbury Harvest to open up a farmers market. Prior 2002, she used to organise major events such as the Australian Craft Show, Gourmet Pantry and Designers & Creators expos in Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne. When she was asked to create the first growers market in the Hills, she accepted the job with excitement. This market has been operating for over 14 years, and Pollyanne and Black Castle Events have not looked back since.
Encouraged by this early triumph, in 2003 we opened up Blackheath Growers Market. This was the first true growers market in the mountains, and it’s been a huge success. We followed that by opening up Springwood in 2015. Welcomed with open arms by the locals, Springwood Growers Market was a major success from the moment we opened.
