Harvest Market

Our next South Kaipara Food Revolution HARVEST MARKET is Sunday 30 October 2016, 10am-1pm - rain or shine.

From freshly baked artisan bread, to fine barista coffee and delicious homemade chutneys and sauces. This is a superb event put on by an enthusiastic community of local producers and artisans, for the South Kaipara community. 

Live music sets the scene, while you wander, sample and learn about all the wonderful producers growing and making food so close to home. 

There'll be water bowls for your dogs, and play areas for the kids.

Our always popular Kids' Kitchen Classes are held during the market. There area three sessions at 9am, 10am and 11:30am. These classes fill quickly, so secure your child's spot early by emailing Keryn at kitchen@thrivekaipara.org.nz. From ages 3+, $5 each. This month Dippy Dips are on the menu, because we all know veges, crackers and chips taste so much better when you can dip them!  

Throughout the market, our Te Whare Oranga manager and volunteers will be on hand to discuss upcoming courses and educational opportunities. If you are unable to get along to the Market but wish to explore educational opportunities at Te Whare Oranga this year, please contact the Manager on 09 420 9983 between 9am-1.30pm, Tuesday–Friday.
