Puhoi Village Market

Picture-FarmersMarket

They say good things come in small packages.

Rain or shine, on the last Sunday of every month is Village Market Day at Puhoi. Situated on the Sports Club grounds, across the river from the village center is the small, quirky, friendly Puhoi Village Market. Open between 9am – 1pm.

There you can expect to find fresh local fruit and vegetables, eggs, coffee roasted in Puhoi, fresh juices, breads, chutneys and sauces, cakes and sweet treats, delicious vegan and gluten-free foods and a variety of flower, native and vegetable plants for the garden.

Ethnic cuisine from India, Holland, Jamaica, Argentina and the Czech Republic is often on sale and local olive oil and honey is a regular feature.

On the craft side you can expect to find flax weaving, beautiful jewelry, fragrant soaps and beauty products, knitting, felting and a great variety of home and garden art and crafts.

City visitors can find old-fashioned or unfamiliar fruit and vegetables such as quinces or damson plums and there is always a stallholder available to tell you how to use them.

Each month the market which has been running since 2008, chooses an additional theme such as a car boot sale, the May celebration of the community’s ethnic and national diversity, the June commemoration of the 1863 founding of the Puhoi settlement and the September Spring garden festival to help keep the market diverse and topical.

A feature for the October market will be a show titled ‘You bring the Talent’ which will feature local buskers, entertainers and musicians. Both kids and adults are invited to share their creativity and sense of fun for a morning of great entertainment.

A special feature of our market is the community table, where growers with small quantities of produce can sell at no cost or seasonal surpluses can be sold or given away.

There is always great entertainment, bands and buskers to entertain you while you relax at the market, buy yourself some treats and treasures and catch up with friends. The market also offers activities for kids as well as a fun and safe playground.

The Puhoi Village Market is in easy reach of canoe hire facilities, Cheese Factory, Bohemian Museum, Puhoi Cottage Tearooms,  the Puhoi Pub, historic church and walking tracks – more than enough to make a full day out for city visitors. This quaint Bohemian village is just two kms from the end of the northern motorway at the Johnstone Hill tunnels.

If you would like to have a stall at our market or to volunteer help on the committee or community table, please email: puhoivillagemarket@gmail.com or phone: 0274 27 0440.
