Love Christmas? ... Love markets? ... Love food trucks?
Love generosity and community spirit?
If the very mention of Christmas ‘sparks joy’ for you, you’ll be saving the date for this brand-new Christmas market that’s being hosted by Blockhouse Bay Community Church this November.
Market stallholders have been doing it tough this year because COVID-19 restrictions have had a huge impact on sales, creating economic uncertainty. Organiser Emily Silby came up with the idea to create a lively indoor market within the church building, inviting vendors to participate free of charge and keeping their entire profit.
“We love our community and want to get behind small businesses doing amazing things”, says Emily. “They’re incredibly talented people and we just want to see them succeed.”
You can expect a wonderful selection of quality products from a bunch of passionate kiwis trying to make a difference in their community. The market will have five food trucks and over 25 independent stalls for you to explore all things Christmassy, from gorgeous wreaths, scrumptious goodies and beautiful homewares to mouthwatering delights from the food truck guys.
“It’s a great opportunity for a fun and relaxing night out with your partner or friends and to interact with people in the neighbourhood”, says Emily. “So, come and enjoy a night out with food, music, and shopping, and get stocked up for Christmas!”
