Hot coffee and flaky pastries, books to be read by the fire, clothes to give the mid-winter wardrobe a fillip.
A world of possibilities await us at this Saturday’s Tamahere Market including, it’s true, that we’ll need to wrap up to beat the chill.
But the rewards are many, including perfect pasta for dinner and meringues like mama used to make.
Black Dog Furniture is making a return to the market just before the opening of their new showroom at the old Bruntwood dairy factory.
What more can we expect? Pickles, jams, honey, fresh fruit and vegetables, bread, cheese, salmon, salami, venison, cakes, Devonshire tea, jewellery, collectibles and art and craft galore.
Nearby, the antiques and collectives fair will also be on, as usual, in the Tamahere Community Centre on Devine Rd.
The Tamahere Market is held in the St Stephen’s church grounds on the corner of Airport Rd and Tamahere Drive, from 8.30am to 1pm. The market is held on the third Saturday of each month. For more detail see here.
