Fritters make market comeback


Hot and moreish mussel fritters are back on the menu at the Tamahere Market this Saturday, July 16.

The popular mussel morsels have been absent from the market recently but are making a welcome return to coincide with a new initiative for market organisers.

A hot coffee also goes down well with market treats like fritters but there are new plans for those takeaway coffee cups.

The first initiative under a new and developing waste management plan for the market is slip, slop, slap on the coffee cup front, says market organiser Jane Manson.

“Slip the lid off your coffee cup, slop the coffee dregs into the bucket provided and slap your cup on a stack,” she says.

“Watch out for the coffee cup stackers at the bins!”

The timely waste plan comes just as the whole Tamahere area, and the rest of the Waikato district, has moved on new waste reduction measures – something that could be one topic taken up with Waikato District Council representatives who will again be on site at the market.

“Any locals that want to have a chat, this is a great time to get down to the market and talk face to face,” says Manson.

The Tamahere Market is held each third Saturday of the month in the St Stephen’s church grounds, corner of Airport Rd and Tamahere Drive, from 8.30am to 1pm. For more information click here.
