The second, post-lockdown Tamahere Market is on this Saturday, July 18, after it roared back to life last month.
“We really appreciated the support of the public at the last market,” said organiser Jane Manson who noted the three month, Covid-19-forced hiatus was the market’s only break in its 15-year history.
“We are fully booked for this market with a list of people waiting to get a site and as always we prioritise produce and New Zealand-made.
“We have pickles and Volare bread, organic meats and chilli sauce, avocados, mandarins and seasonal produce.”
The quality of the craft, art, sculpture and jewellery on show was also always amazing, Manson said.
In a heads up for an upcoming market, it will be time to bring out the inner Steam Punk.
“In September we are having a Steam Punk Market and anyone can dress in their finery if they want to. We will have visitors from the Thames Steam Punk group and have the support of the Hamilton followers as well,” Manson said. “We have a number of vendors that are supporting this and it is going to be fun!”
Tamahere Market is on from 8.30am to 1pm in St Stephen’s church grounds on the corner of Tamahere Drive and Airport Rd. It is held the third Saturday of every month. More details here.
