The monthly chance to bump into neighbours and friends over the pickles or persimmons, pasties or paintings, aka the Tamahere Market, is on this Saturday.
There will be a treat in store for muesli munchers as a new stall selling the wholesome breakfast joins the wonderful and varied line up at the market.
Others contributing to the ever-changing food and drink variety this year have been the tempting hot chocolate and fruit syrups which have joined regulars such as gourmet pies, Indian vegetarian food and freshly made crepes.
Organiser Jane Manson is also hopeful a new range of mushrooms with a difference will make their first appearance at the May 18 market.
And it is the time now, before it gets too cold, to plant shrubs and bulbs, which will be in plentiful supply at the market.
The weather may be a tad crisp but rug up and venture out for an enjoyable morning, Manson advises.
The Tamahere Market is held in St Stephen’s church grounds, corner of Airport Rd and Tamahere Drive, from 8am to 1pm, every third Saturday of the month. For more detail and directions click here.
