The weekend markets are set to continue and, fortunately for us, Spring is certainly in the air.

Indulge in some some fresh local produce, help reduce food miles and grab a plant or two, delicious preserves and crafts from the Esperance Growers Market.

The Growers Market takes place once a fortnight come rain, hail or shine, on Saturday mornings from 9am-11am at Nulsen Primary School.

The next markets will be held this Saturday, September 7, and again on Saturday, 21.

The Museum Village Markets will be held next Sunday, September 15 from 8:30am-12:30pm.

Peruse the crafts and local bits n bobs and grab a bite to eat on a beautiful sunny Sunday morning.

Locals will have the opportunity to get up close and personal with an amazing array of creatures from bygone eras with Erth's Dinosaur Zoo, connecting young audiences to the real science of palaeontology.

The event will be held on Saturday, September 7, from 5.30pm until 6.15pm at the Esperance Civic Centre.

On Tuesday, September 10, Yamato the Drummers of Japan return to Esperance to perform.

Yamato is set to leave audiences exhilarated by this visually spectacular, high-energy explosive show.

The show is set to kick off from 7.30pm. To secure your tickets, visit the Shire of Esperance Administration Building or the Esperance Public Library or visit www.esperance.wa.gov.au/events/

For those looking for a little smooth music, bring your lunch and mates to Morning Melodies on Thursday, September 12, from 11am until 1pm.

Relax and enjoy the tunes with soulful local musician Kyron Smithson.

Smithson will join the other two members of his three-piece Grand Casual to perform alongside The Southern River Band in what promises to be an unbelievable live show at The Cannery Arts Centre on Saturday, September 7, from 6pm.
