Following Past President Geoff Wood’s excellent historical narrative on the Farmers Market beginnings on Tuesday evening I would just like to elucidate on the purchase of the Electric Cart. The idea to purchase an Electric Cart came from Rob Winspear. A touring party of the hardworking John Hudson then Market Director, Newton Langford, Robert Winspear and I as chauffeur, first visited Ford in Broadmeadows then a supplier in Footscray that were both clearing out secondhand units. The Cart finally chosen was from the Footscray supplier.
