Is This The Answer For Freezing Days At QVM?

We embrace our “open air” status at The Queen Victoria Market, but there are times when the extreme weather variations make life very difficult, and trader John Magno may have the answer for cold wintry days.

The portable heater shown in our photos was purchased at Masters and runs on canned gas. It kicks out a surprising amount of heat and each can lasts around 2 hours and 10 minutes. That might not sound very long, but the cans cost under $5 for 4 cans. Pick up a heater for around $50 or perhaps visit John’s stall on a regular basis on really cold days.

POSTSCRIPT: Apparently Masters have new stock of these heaters but at $99 each. Our correspondent complained about the huge price increase and was offered stock at the old price. If that doesn't work for you, keep in mind that Aldi had a similar item recently for $59.
