The weather forecast is for a run of brilliant sunshine right through the weekend, which bodes well for Saturday’s Tamahere Market.
The June 16 market coincides with the National Agricultural Fieldays at nearby Mystery Creek so it will be possible to pack in both markets – one country and one agricultural – in the one day for the keen and energetic.
Tamahere Market’s creative stallholders offer tasty fresh and cooked food ranging from seasonal fruit and vegetables to specialty breads, pastries, pies, pasties, pasta, cakes and biscuits and accompanying delights such as cheese, jam and marmalade, pickles, chutneys and sauces, and juices and wine. The pantry never has more to offer than the week after market day.
Now it’s time to wrap up warm the market has that covered with woolen clothes from under- to over-wear, socks to scarves.
The monthly market never fails to offer surprises in the art and craft line, too. The talking point last market was Donna Marshall’s hand painted signs on recycled native timber. What will be the must-have this month? A painting? a photograph? a carving or a stunning piece of jewellery?
Tamahere Market is held the third Saturday of each month in the St Stephen’s church grounds, corner Airport Rd and Tamahere Drive. More details here.
