Mangawhai's Market Grows
by Julia West

Looking for a huge range of fresh food, lovingly preserved specialities and local produce direct from the source? Then look no further than Mangawhai.

Local olive grower Teresa Anderson — a regular at the Mangawhai Markets

The Mangawhai Saturday Market actually began as an organic market in Kaiwaka in 2000. It was later moved to Mangawhai to capitalise on the holidaymakers who come to the beach at weekends and throughout the summer.

Nowadays the market offers a broad selection of fresh food and produce, much of which is locally sourced and still organic. You’ll find freshly baked bread, cheeses, honey, olive oils, cured meats, smoked fish, grains, preserves, dips, and wine.

Sam’s Butchery, which sells a range of cured pork products, recently won a Gold medal 2012 for their ‘maple dry-cured oak-smoked bacon’. They were up against 85 competitors and 159 different bacons for the prize.

Marita Draper, coordinator of the market, says, “we get a number of customers from Auckland at the weekends who tell us they do all their weekend shopping here.”

There are also stalls selling skincare products, clothing, jewellery, children’s books, dolls out ts, bric-a-brac, wooden products, second-hand books, seedlings and plants. You can get your jewellery cleaned or watch batteries changed at one stall, and most Saturdays a massage therapist is available. Takeaway cafe-style food and fresh coffee are also on offer.

Stallholders range from small business owners to hobbyists, lobbyists, ex-city dwellers, and retirees from as far a field as Ruakaka, Pahi, Paparoa, Matakohe and Warkworth. Three sisters come from Kaiwaka to sell their crocheted and knitted rugs, vests, hats and scarves.

Ron Green has been selling trees and plants at the market for ten years. “It adds to my national super which is a good thing. Living on that alone, there would be a lot of things you couldn’t do. It’s a community thing here too, with people coming along for a coffee and a chin-wag,” says Ron.

For Emma Prujeans of Rush Coffee “the first year was quite tough, but now we get good custom all year round, with regulars amongst the locals and bach owners alike. So we love it here.”

“The market keeps growing, new stalls arrive all the time and the range of products keeps expanding. As the weather improves we’ll have more live music to enliven the atmosphere too,” says Marita.
