Society for the Local Economy of Ashhurst & Pohangina

Ashhurst Community Market

Upcoming market 13 October

Get ready for your local market to be back on Saturday 13th October 2018, at the Village Green & Library Community Garden.

 

This market session sees a change of co-ordinator - Beth Jones is now in this role with Helen King stepping aside after 4 years. Helen remains a part of the LEAP committee so will still be a presence at our market and other community initiatives. Helen has been integral to the success of our community market and her continuing roles as volunteer and trustee ensure its presence in our community now and into the future.

 

About the market

 

The focus of the market is to offer the opportunity to local producers and businesses to showcase what they do, and communicate who they are in a relaxed and enjoyable Saturday morning community setting. Though priority is given to Ashhurst-Pohangina based businesses, sellers from outside the area are also welcome to express interest.

 

The market also serves the purpose of encouraging people to understand and appreciate what is available in their community and to make choices to buy locally to increase community resilience, connectedness and friendships.

 

Each market has a different flavour that reflects the seasons and what they offer. Music is a key component and many talented musicians entertain an appreciative public. Local community organisations are also given the opportunity to raise awareness and funds.

 

We've got some exciting things happening so keep an eye out on our FaceBook page.

 

If you're interested in having a space at our market get in touch (or pop into the library and speak with Beth).
