Note: Due to the forecast of heavy rains with Northeasterlies we regret to announce that the Sunday 11 February market has been cancelled. Sincere apologies for the disappointment and inconvenience.
A family-friendly, outdoor Sunday market featuring specialty produce, handmade items and artisan food stalls with music, children's entertainment, garden workshops and a pop-up tearoom on the verandah!
Alberton is a beautiful 1863 timber mansion with Indian influenced turrets in Mt Albert run by Heritage New Zealand. It has tranquil grounds recalling the setting of a quaint country farm with flowerbeds, a vegetable patch, chicken coop and lots of sunny grassy areas.
Alberton's Market Days are now in the second season, running on the 2nd Sunday of the month (except in January):
- 12 November 2017
- 10 December 2017
- 11 February 2018
- 11 March 2018
- 8 April 2018
As well as seasonal fruit & vegetables the market features homemade preserves, pickles and jams, fresh-cut flowers, honey, deli products, gourmet sausages and charcuterie, nuts & nut butters, boutique olive oil, breads & baked good, sweet treats and coffee!
Local makers showcase beautiful handcrafted goods such as cards, prints, jewellery, candles, homewares, kids clothes, soap, beauty products and other unique trinkets.
A changing array of some of Auckland's top street food stalls offer tempting options for brunch or lunch. Alberton's volunteers serve tea and scones with cream & jam on the verahadah. From the vintage china of course!
As well as live music there are free garden workshops and talks on the programme on topics such as chicken and bee keeping, composting, floral art and gardening. Free or gold coin children's crafts, face-painting or balloon-twisting keep the youngsters occupied. A huge hamper of goodies donated to by the stallholders is up for grabs every month!
Come along to catch up with friends & neighbours in Alberton's beautiful garden. Shop local, direct from the growers, craftspeople and small independent businesses and support all the entrepreneurs involved in this great community event!
