Nau mai, haere mai! All are welcome at this weekend market, designed to nourish your hinengarō (mind), tinana (body) and wairua (spirit).
From 10:00am, stalls will offer locally made toi Māori (Māori arts and crafts) including woven kete, pounamu pendants, jewellery and poi. Locally made preserves and delicacies will also be available for purchase – not to mention traditional Māori kai!
Another highlight will be the rongoā (traditional Māori healing) area where two practitioners will be offering mirimiri (traditional Māori massage) and rongoā cosmetics such as balms, creams and oils, crafted from extracts from native plants.
In the rear of the foyer, you'll find an exhibition of Ngāi Tahu artworks, which includes raranga, jewellery, paintings, carving, prints and sculpture.
Keen to make a day of it? Grab tickets to the Manaaki: Hāngī which will be cooked throughout the day and served at 5:30pm and 6:00pm.
