A regular Sunday market will be launched at The Oaks Retirement Village on Sunday December 16, running from 9am to 1pm.
Organiser Susan Vize says it will be pitched as a local producer and artisan market. “I am trying hard to make sure that it is local – Puhoi to Pakiri, but have had to extend to Dargaville for some produce,” Susan says.
“The goal is to provide a platform for local producers to sell their wares, while capturing the domestic tourists that travel past our lovely town every Sunday.” Susan says Sunday was deliberately chosen so as not to compete with Matakana.
Santa will be at the first market on the 16th, and possibly music as well.
Warkworth retailers are being encouraged to open their doors as well. “I am still looking for some more local producers and artisans, and artists.”
