Lots of good, Christmas cheer … along with gift ideas … will be part and parcel of the annual Tamahere Twilight Market this Saturday, December 4, 4-8pm.
Sparkling jewellery, quirky accessories, trendy houseplants and beautiful wood craft will be among the unique, New Zealand-made products featured at the extra special market, held in the St Stephen’s Tamahere Church grounds.
“It is a time for presents, so there won’t be veges at this market but there will be local strawberries!” said market organiser Jane Manson.
The Orange Traffic Light Covid-19 system will have kicked in so vaccine passports will be scanned for entry or vaccine certificates will need to be sighted.
Mask wearing will be required along with maintaining 1m distancing.
Finally, as befits the season “be kind,” said Manson.
The twilight market is an extra, annual market hosted by St Stephen’s, which runs the monthly Tamahere Market on church grounds on the corner of Tamahere Dr and Airport Rd on the third Saturday of each month.
The next market – the last for the year – will be on December 18, 8am to 1pm.
