We're extending an invite to all local growers, food producers and craftspeople to book a stall at our Harvest & Artisan Markets in 2017.
We'd also love to hear from performers who can entertain our market-goers.

Our always popular Kids' Kitchen Classes are held during the market. There are three sessions at 9am, 10am and 11:30am. These classes fill quickly, so secure your child's spot early by emailing Keryn at email@example.com. From ages 3+, $5 each. At our next market on 30 July the kids will be making Wacky Wontons.
During 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.
Visit our Classes page for more information on these proposed courses. They will go ahead if there are enough students enrolled. So, please read the flyer and if you or someone you know might be interested contact Pip on 027 571 3848.
