BEST DRESSED CHRISTMAS DOG Competition now on December 14
The Best Dressed Christmas Dog competition at Parnell Farmers' Market was cancelled last Saturday due to rain soaking the market-going dogs (and people). It's been postponed until Saturday December 14. Please come back with your Christmas dogs! The current forecast for next Saturday is BRILLIANTLY SUNNY!
Craft Harvest runs alongside Parnell Farmers’ Market from 8- 11.45am in the Jubilee Hall at 545 Parnell Road, on the 14 and 21 December to give everyone plenty of opportunities to buy beautiful and original hand-made presents.
Take a look at pictures of the beautifully crafted gifts, jewellery, toys, accessories, childrens' wear, art and more sold by the makers themselves.
New York Times visits Parnell Farmers' Market
You can too - every Saturday from 8am - 12 noon!
New York Times travel writer, Ingrid K. Williams visited Auckland recently and included our market in her story "36 Hours in Auckland, New Zealand".
After a walk through Auckland Domain, Williams writes:
" When hunger strikes, stray a block from the southern edge of the park to the Parnell Farmers’ Market (545 Parnell Road; parnell.org.nz), where stalls overflow with local products. Bite into a bacon-and-egg bap (sandwich) with spicy tomato sauce (5 New Zealand dollars) while listening to a musician strum a guitar, and then sample the goods at the Hakanoa Ginger Beer stand and the mouthwatering varieties at the NZ Cheeseman stall."
