Head over to the Paihia Art and Craft Market on the PAIHIA VILLAGE GREEN.
The Village Green is the temporary home to one of the best authentic Northland art and craft markets when cruise ships are in the Bay. With 36 stalls, the Market offers shoppers the opportunity to meet artists and crafters in person and take away something really unique and special.
At the market you will find gifts and goodies galore – wood craft, ceramics, hand made soaps, herbal remedies, glass work, hats, clothing, bags in leather and fabric, pounamu, artisan jewellery, high-calibre art in varying mediums and much more! A wide variety of products from Northland comprise the visual delight of the market. Some stallholders are full time with their craft; some are hobbyists.
What they all have in common is a love of the marketplace, pride in their work, and a friendly welcome for you.
