Adding to the feast of fresh delights will be local sweetcorn and Katikati avocados.

Team all that, along with salami, smoked fish and cheese, with loaves of tasty bread from Volare or other specialist bakers and memorable market day meals are assured.

Star watchers may want to drop into a Waikato District Council stall with some suggestions for the Matariki celebrations to be held later in the year.

The generous will want to go armed with spare coins for a range of worthy fundraisers airing their causes amid the commerce.

And for those of us who feel the market can’t come soon enough each month a treat has been lined up – an additional twilight market with an international flavour has been added to the schedule on Saturday, March 7 from 4-8pm.

The March evening market is designed to highlight and celebrate the Waikato’s cultural diversity. Expect international handcrafts, the food of far flung nations, and exotic singers, dancers and musicians showcasing their national performance art.

The Saturday morning Tamahere Market is held in the St Stephen’s church grounds, corner of Airport Rd and Tamahere Drive from 8.30am to 1pm. Click here for more details.
