Get a taste of Margaret St Market this Thursday

Hutt City’s buzzing Margaret St Market returns this Thursday at midday until 8.30pm.

Situated in the heart of Hutt City’s CBD, Margaret Street’s vibrant market has over twenty stalls that sell a wide variety of food, quality arts, crafts and more. Throughout the day there is live entertainment and themed activities for market-goers to enjoy.

“The first theme embraces the season and will get you in the festive mood with music and fun activities” says Catherine Messenger Weepu, Market Manager.

“From 6pm to 8.30pm kids will be able to record a letter to Santa and help his elves decorate the Margaret Street Christmas tree”.

Outdoor markets are a great way to get out in the fresh air, so get along and check out the variety of food stalls from Samoan chop suey to Hungarian Chimney Cakes! Grab some unique gifts and have some fun while you do that last minute Christmas shop.

Margaret Street market runs until 27 February 2014. Hours are from noon to 8.30pm (closed 2 January and 6 February).

The market is subject to the weather conditions and notifications will be posted on our website as well as broadcast on Classic Hits.
