A new market is coming to the Waikato, and Cambridge stall-holders will feature.

The airfield on Limmer Rd is the new host for the event.

The hangars will be open so people can see the planes.

It used to be held at the community hall in October and November, but the new location means it can run every couple of months if it is successful.


Organiser Linda Gorlicki said there was no cafe in Te Kowhai, so she hopes for this market to become a community hub.


"There's just nothing out there, there was no where to catch up with friends for coffee or anything but they have a coffee cart out there now," she said.


"And they are hoping to put a cafe in, so once that gets going hopefully it really will become a community hub.

"Just look at how many people the Pirongia market gets in."


Te Kowhai is a 10 minute drive north of Hamilton but is not a destination town.


The market will hopefully change that, said Gorlicki.

"It's not really a full on farming area anymore, it's all lifestyles, the school has 350 kids at it," she said.

Cambridge stall holders will be there, including Mr Softy.


About 50 stalls have been confirmed, and along with the food and craft stalls, there will be planes and classic cars.


The hangars at the airfield will be open for people to see the planes, and there will be planes coming in throughout the day.


The Pilot Brewery will be open for beer tasting, and there will be plenty of entertainment including the Apron Strings Band, martial arts performances and bohemian dancers.


Captain Waka will be there with hangi food, and there will be bouncy castles and rides for the children.

Gorlicki has a strawberry farm and has been attending markets for many years, but has only been organising the Te Kowhai Market for about four years.


It is on Saturday, February 11 from 10am - 3pm at the Te Kowhai Airfield on Limmer Rd.
