Na Koro Mar­ket or­gan­iser Peter Sipeli has come up with new ideas on how peo­ple can bet­ter en­joy the mar­ket. Within the next few months he wants the Na Koro Mar­ket to or­gan­ise the long­est picnic ta­ble for every­one at­tend­ing to have lunch to­gether.

Mr Sipeli said: “I am in­ter­ested in peo­ple bring­ing their picnic tables with some food at the next Na Koro Mar­ket. “We are go­ing to line them up and have a long­est picnic ta­ble ever in Fiji. “They can bring along their white ta­ble cloths with them,” he said. Mr Sipelu said he wanted to do this for peo­ple to get to know each other bet­ter. “There are so many mar­kets or­gan­ised in Suva, but I want Na Koro Mar­ket to be big­gest mar­ket in Fiji.” Peo­ple vis­ited the Na Koro Mar­ket at the Fiji Mu­seum in Suva in large num­bers yes­ter­day. While par­ents were busy shop­ping and enjoying food, chil­dren were run­ning, play­ing and get­ting in­volved in the cre­ativ­ity ac­tiv­i­ties or­gan­ised for them. Mr Sipeli said he was happy to see peo­ple com­ing to the Na Koro Mar­ket in such num­bers. Jazz Ziedan, who came from New Zealand for a week’s va­ca­tion, said she en­joyed her day at the mar­ket yes­ter­day.

“This is beau­ti­ful and I’m able to see a lot of art­work and enjoying lovely mu­sic,” she said.

Ale­fiyah Ji­wanji, orig­i­nally from France, but been re­sid­ing in Fiji for last nine years, also en­joyed Na Koro Mar­ket yes­ter­day.

“It’s an op­por­tu­nity for fam­i­lies to get to­gether, re­lax, en­joy lovely food and so­cialise with one an­other.

“The ac­tiv­i­ties are very nice and peo­ple get to learn and en­joy,” she said. Edited by Jonathan Bryce
