Whether the weather be wet or fine the Tamahere Country Market will be on this Saturday (August 21).
Warm up with mussel fritters, keep the chill at bay with alpaca wool, the bugs away with kiwifruit, and fill the pantry with new season avocados. Just for starters.
All the popular homestyle produce and goods, gourmet food and drink, arts and crafts will feature along with more seasonal goodies. What better than to take home a crusty loaf, smoked fish or chicken, venison salami or your favourite, distinctive market cheese and share with family and friends over lunch.
Many market food buys keep well in the fridge or pantry, providing tasty treats for a week or more. Market arts and crafts for gifts, to wear, use or decorate your own home give even more lasting pleasure. And a top market delight is to catch up with friends – just remember to look up from the stallholders’ attractions occasionally to see who is walking by!
Tamahere Market is held in the St Stephen’s Church grounds, corner of Airport Rd and Tamahere Drive, (just off State Highway 1) from 8am to 1pm this Saturday, August 21, and the third Saturday of every month.
