Mar­ket closes up shop


Doug Hockey was one of the last stall hold­ers to pack up at the Kaik­oura School Mar­ket on Satur­day.

He was been sell­ing his na­tive plants at the mar­ket, reg­u­larly, for 10 years.

The at­ten­dance was ‘‘so-so’’ said Hockey ‘‘al­though we had 9 or 10 stall hold­ers, but in sum­mer we have 30.’’

Mar­ket or­gan­iser Mar­lene In­gram was a teacher at the school for 30 years and re­mains on the PTA.

The mar­ket, which has been run­ning for 24 years, op­er­ates as a fundraiser for the school. All stall­hold­ers are wel­come, with an at­ten­dance fee of $10.

The mar­ket is closed now un­til 15th Septem­ber.

Mar­ket days are ad­ver­tised, and are held more fre­quently in the high sum­mer sea­son.
