The Na Koro Mar­ket aims to bring peo­ple to cel­e­brate a his­tor­i­cal event when Thurston Gar­dens in Suva cel­e­brates its 103rd birthday on Sun­day.

Mar­ket or­gan­iser Peter Sipeli said they ex­pect a big turn out and great weather for peo­ple to have a great day of fun.

“It is also a safe space for fam­i­lies and chil­dren to run free in a man­i­cured space that is per­fect on great sunny sum­mer days like this Sun­day.” “Peo­ple can come down and have a pic­nic in the park. We will have live mu­sic, food and range of awe­some stuff to do,” he said.

Tessa Miller, and artist and founder of Sea Gems, is in­spired to host a med­i­ta­tion ses­sion on “Your Best Self”. En­ter­tain­ment in­cludes live mu­sic by 4 Quar­ters, a mar­ket house band and four great games for chil­dren that would start at 10am to 2pm. “Sea Gems is in­spired to bring this ses­sion to iden­tify a small com­mu­nity of like-minded peo­ple that are in­ter­ested in yoga, med­i­ta­tion and well­ness around the Na Koro mar­ket.

“They will also run ses­sions to make cir­cles made of nat­u­ral leaves, plant fi­bres and other col­lecta­bles from the gar­den into a sculp­ture that por­trays hu­man be­ings. “Sea Gems be­lieves that the hu­man kind is dif­fer­ent but sim­i­lar as it is part of the web of life.

“The cen­tre of each circle is an open­ing like a win­dow, it is in this form that we are the same and that is eter­nal, form­less and un­la­belled,” Ms Miller said. Diana Gies­brecht, an Amer­i­can, has been liv­ing in Fiji for the past 10 years is an en­thu­si­ast who teaches Salsa ev­ery Satur­day at the Museum.

She in­vites peo­ple to dress in Bula for a les­son at the Mar­ket on Sun­day.
