Rock on down to the market


Rock on down to the Tamahere Market on Saturday (February 16) for the best of the season’s sweetcorn and more yummy food besides.

Rocking horses of recycled materials are proving a hit

The Kumar’s delicious vegetarian Indian food has a deserved following as do the makers of the ever popular mussel fritters, the irresistible designer pies and the moreish Cornish pasties.

On the must-see craft side of the market, organiser Jane Manson singled out for special mention some new stallholders creating “fabulous rocking horses” made from recycled tyres that hang in trees.

And Hamilton locals, Creative Etch, are also proving a hit with their stainless steel and wooden sculptures of trees, palms and wildlife.

And for collectors of nostalgic goods, the Antique, Curios and Collectors Fair will be on in the nearby Tamahere Community Centre, in Devine Rd, at the same time as the market. It’s a must for people who like collecting, books, china, vinyl records, jewellery, vintage and retro clothes, stamps, coins, furniture and more.

The Tamahere Market is held each third Saturday of the month, from 8am to 1pm, in the St Stephen’s Church grounds on the corner of Airport Rd and Tamahere Drive. For more details including directions click here.
