Our wonderful asset, the popular Tamahere Market, starts its second century of markets this weekend.
The March 16 market will be the 101st time our wonderful, monthly gathering place for friends and family has served up a taste tempting array of delicious fresh and cooked food, and a unique range of arts and crafts.
The market, which is in its ninth year, having started in October 2004, will this Saturday feature seasonal produce, including locally-grown corn.
Locally-grown apples will also be on offer in all their cheap and wonderful glory.
Bread is a market staple but the range is far from ordinary. There is gluten-free, Italian, Turkish, brown, white, wholegrain, multigrain, bagels, flat and many more.
“Team that up with salami and cheese and a bottle of wine – what more could you wish for?” says peerless market organiser Jane Manson.
In the sweet range, two stallholders offering fudge are proving very popular. Both offer samples so you can try before you buy.
Look out, also, for the Tamahere School stall, which is there to remind locals and out-of-district people alike of its annual Pumpkin Night fundraiser, which is on March 23. See more here.
Happy 101st Tamahere Market. For more details on the market, including how to get there and what to expect click here.
