In 1988 Mrs Margaret Heseltine of Udialla Station, a successful market gardener, was seeking a wider clientele to purchase her produce during the winter months. Possibilities were discussed with friends and letters were sent to the Shire requesting permission to set up markets on Public Land. Suggestions included the parking lot across from Rustys supermarket, the corner across the road from the Centrelink Offices, or land across the road from Kimberley Auto Parts.

Country Womens Association of Australia is the largest womens organisation in the country. The CWAA serves in almost every small country town and community across Australia, with a total membership of 44,000 members from 1855 branches.
The CWA aims to improve the conditions for country women and children and tries to make life better for women and their families, especially those women living in rural and remote Australia.
CWA is self-funded, non party political and non-sectarian. The Associations opinion is sought in many arenas and its strong working relationship with governments in all States and the Territory shows a healthy respect for the "human face and grass roots perspective" which the C.W.A. of Australia has projected for 50 years.
