I have just returned from The Village night market held at the top end of George Street, next to the Convention Centre. A fabulous event that is deserving of local support. A combination of food and craft and entertainment, the event bought a wee bit of oomph to that corner of Palmerston North. The aroma of roasting nuts, the crunch of the most spectacular crisps on a stick. Let me explain, you know when you get an apple and you peel it so you end up with a spring like skin, well they did that to the spud, skewered onto a stick, deep fried, hey presto crisps on a stick, were they popular, by heck they were. All of this contributed to a fabulous few hours supporting local business. There are two more events Friday 28th Feb and Friday 28th March, it will only be as good as the support extended by the people of Palmy. Fabulous tutu’s for the tots only $15, these were fab and they come with a head band. Beautifully made and are suitable for ages 2/3 up to 7/8 years. My fave this little purple number 🙂
you can email and they make to order, the photo doesn’t do it justice for the price !
I managed to avoid the tempting aroma of the caramelised almonds, just ! but loved these two next features and have caved and decide the buy the white speaker due to its versatility, great for travel, days trips to the beach, weekends away, etc !
