All Your Italian Christmas Shopping under One Roof!

Mercatino di Natale

Italian Christmas market

9 December 2017, 10am – 3pm

Freemans Bay Community Centre, 52 Hepburn Street, Ponsonby, Auckland

The ultimate Italian Christmas market is back in Auckland and bigger than ever — bringing all the food, wine, giftware, art, craft, fashion, design and jewellery that Italy can offer in New Zealand at this special time of the year.

The Dante Alighieri Society of Auckland is hosting an Italian market with over 20 stalls at the Freemans Bay Community Centre - 52 Hepburn Street, Ponsonby - on December 9 from 10am-3pm.

Sir John Kirwan, President of the Dante Alighieri Italian Society of Auckland, commented: “We wanted to bring all the great Italian produce and talented craftspeople together so that Kiwis and Italians could enjoy a fun Italian Christmas atmosphere. I hope to see lots of people coming down and looking forward to sharing Panettone, Prosecco and all we have to offer!"

The Market is free to enter. On the day, local and travelling stallholders will be selling a great range of products including pizza, gelato, coffee, wine, cheese, sweets, jewellery, candles, handmade Christmas cards, pottery, clothing, hand-bags and much more. There will be art activities for children, a display of Italian bikes, and amazing Christmas hampers to win.

Auckland’s Dante Alighieri Society organises the Mercatino Italiano to support the Dante Alighieri Italian school and thanks all our volunteers, community group, sponsors and stall holders for their effort in bringing this event together.

Public Housing Futures: Christmas Comes Early For Landlords

New CTU analysis of the National & ACT coalition agreement has shown the cost of returning interest deductibility to landlords is an extra $900M on top of National’s original proposal. This is because it is going to be implemented earlier and faster, including retrospective rebates from April 2023. More

Green Party: Petition To Save Oil & Gas Ban

“The new Government’s plan to expand oil and gas exploration is as dangerous as it is unscientific. Whatever you think about the new government, there is simply no mandate to trash the climate. We need to come together to stop them,” says James Shaw. More

PSA: MFAT Must Reverse Decision To Remove Te Reo

MFAT's decision to remove te reo from correspondence before new Ministers are sworn in risks undermining the important progress the public sector has made in honouring te Tiriti. "We are very disappointed in what is a backward decision - it simply seems to be a Ministry bowing to the racist rhetoric we heard on the election campaign trail," says Marcia Puru. More
