Farmers Market Party: a day for the kids

Catering for the Kids!

On the 1st of September the Lyttelton Farmers Market turns 7 and we are throwing a party … this year it’s all about the kids!

The Lyttelton Farmers Market focuses on building community, connecting people to where their food comes from and promoting fresh, local produce. We want kids to be involved in all of this and so for the 7th Birthday Party we are providing heaps of activities to get them engaged with the market.

Thumbs up puppetry present two performances of Peter Rabbit, suitable for 3-7year olds (and big kids to!). At 10.30 and 11.30 in the school hall kids can cheer on Peter Rabbit as he raids Mr. McGregor’s veggie patch, learn Peter Rabbit songs and help Mr. McGregor get his carrots to the Lyttelton Farmers Market.

There will be a baking competition in aid of St John Ambulance – entrants bring a plate of home baking (cupcakes, slices, muffins, cakes etc.) and enter it at the Information Stall by 11.30am. At 12noon the judges will sample the entries and choose a winner from the under 8’s and 9-15yr old categories who will receive a family pass to the Antarctic Centre.

There will be a colouring comp to win a make your own block puzzle kid from NZ creative company Seedling, and a crafty table where you can make a father’s day card for dad. And look out for roaming street performers and surprises to!

This event is brought to you by Project Lyttelton and generously sponsored by: Crater Rim, The London Street Dairy, Harbour Co-op, Gruff Junction Cheeses, Volcano Markets, Caddie Gardens, Seedling, Freemans Dining Room, The Antarctic Centre, Phantom Bill Stickers, 328 Design, Printable Solutions, the Lyttelton Time Bank and The Garage Sale.

The Lyttelton Farmers Market is run by Project Lyttelton, a charitable grass roots community organisation whose focus is on creating a sustainable Lyttelton for the future. The market operates from the grounds of Lyttelton Main School every Saturday Morning from 10am til 1pm.
