Rebranding of Trash 'n' Trivia

The market had become so much more than Trash 'n' Trivia so in xxxxxx the market was re-branded to "The Ballarat Market"

The Ballarat Market continues to change

Many thousands of people visit the market each year to pick up bargains and hard to get items. The Market is a also place to socialise and is a Sunday morning outing for many.   The market has changed over the years and will continue to do so as shopping habits change. The emphais of the market will be on items not easily sourced elsewhere, fresh produce, plants, etc., and will not forget its genesis as the Trash 'n' Trivia market.
