World Famous Waitomo Caves and The Rugged Taranaki Coast


Piopio Market

THE monthly Piopio Market held in the summer months has had a change of organising committee. Sarah Ronaldson and Grace Cortés Montecinos have taken over the reins and are hoping to take the market to the next level.

Sarah and Grace are keen on growing the market with their aim being to make it a must attend event each month for people across the district (and further!). “We have so many talented people in our community, and we really want the market to provide an opportunity for locals to showcase that talent”, says Grace.

On October 14 stallholders participated including produce, handmade sewn items, polymer clay earrings, macrame, plants, a wholefoods cart, woodwork, crystals and handmade soaps.

Sarah says “We’re excited for the November market, which is set to be even bigger, with more stallholders being added weekly. The November market will be a great opportunity for people to make a dent in their Christmas shopping and support local producers, and we encourage everyone to come along.”

The market now features a fundraising stall each month which provides an opportunity for a local group, club or event to raise some much-needed funds.

Upcoming market: November 20 from 9am @ The Village Green, Piopio.

Stalls are $10; if you’re interested in booking a stall or for more information on the market email: [email protected]
