This is one of very few community-run markets in New Zealand. Stallholder site fees go towards local community projects, including Coastguard North Shore. There is a large range of goods on sale, and stalls are constantly changing, from tools and antiques, designer clothes, books, second-hand clothes, bags, handcrafts, art, hand-made jewellery, a wide variety of fresh produce, home baking, flowers, plants, free range eggs and honey.
If you are interested in holding a stall at this market, all you have to do is arrive on the day from 5.30am (weather dependent). The cost of a stall is $20 per standard car park (2.5m wide), or $30 for a corner site. Table hire is $10 – first come first served. Gazebos are not available for hire.
Entry is on Anzac Road.
