Rebranded market opens
Wanaka’s weekly farmers market celebrated its tenth birthday with a rebrand on Thursday July 8.
The former farmers and gardeners market has changed its name to Wanaka Artisan Market to better reflect the variety and diversity of the stall holders who exhibit.
Wanaka Artisan Market chair, Kirsty Schmutsch, said the addition of locally-made arts and crafts vendors two years ago was the catalyst for the market to expand.
“We’ve been overwhelmed at how busy the market was this summer and some days we were almost out of stall space, which is testament to a number of talented local individuals and businesses with an appetite for a vibrant and diverse market in Wanaka,” Kirsty said.
“We’re immensely lucky to have award-winning producers, growers, crafts people and other artisans as our members.”
The Wanaka Artisan Market will be every Thursday from 3-6pm at Bullock Creek.
