New Ideas for Suva’s Na Koro Market Future
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
