Market Update

The Puhoi Village Market on Sunday 26 November had a relaxing and cheerful Christmas vibe.

Browsing amongst the stalls, socialising with old and new friends, enjoying the coffee and sunshine and listening to the music of International recording artist David Four ( made for a very pleasant morning at the market.

Santa kindly dropped in and chatted with the children and an interactive family friendly drum circle added to the atmosphere and fun.

At the Kid’s Corner under the Christmas tree, the young ones drew pictures and posted letters to Santa in the especially made post box. These letters have now been sent on to Santa’s Workshop in the North Pole.

Amongst the usual popular food, beverages, plants, clothing, art and crafts stalls we found Errol from TIMBERCRAFT selling his lovely wooden signs and Bev offering her deluxe deck chairs with a difference. (

Now that summer is upon us, a mention must be made about the delicious artisan ice cream made by Darryll and served in single portions in sealed containers. Flavours include Tahitian Vanilla Bean, Milk Chocolate, Salted Caramel, Mint Chocolate Chip and other intriguing taste treats. This locally made ice cream has been developed so as not to contain eggs, artificial colours or flavouring, but simply natural tasty ingredients, just the way ice cream should be.

The lucky stall holder of the day went to Judy, offering a number of beautifully written and illustrated children’s books.

The Puhoi Village Market committee would like to thank everyone for their support and wishing you all a safe and happy holiday break over Christmas and the New Year. For all offers of help in 2018 and enquiries please contact Dave on 0274 27 0440 or email

The next Village Market will be held on Sunday 28 January 2018 and kicks off with a car boot sale and Suitcase Stalls, a mini scaled market with giant rewards.
