The Tamahere Market this Saturday will be the place to get your feijoa rations – if you haven’t got your own personal supply of the fruit or the overflow from friends.

The evergreen monthly treat of fresh and cooked food, arts, crafts and all manner of novelty items is on from 8am till 1pm in the grounds of St Stephen’s Tamahere.

Children can be transformed – the resident face painter will be there – and marketgoers can also help transform other lives by donating to the Foundation for the Blind via the fundraising effort of the guys with their Italian Minis.

She wouldn’t be drawn on the mystery but did say the Mosaic Choir would be performing in St Stephen’s Church “to kick start that Christmassy feeling.”

Market for NZ-made goodies

May 14th, 2017 | By

Tamahere Market, where we get NZ made, produced, created or home grown goodies is on this Saturday, May 20.

The weather forecast is for sunny but brisk autumn weather so the advice is to wrap up warmly to go looking for more warmth among the fine woollies, recycled fashion, pies, pastries and coffee cups.

The market is renowned for its wide range of produce, craft, art, plants and awesomely creative stall holders.
