38 2 Wednesday [Edition datE] September 5 2018 Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi SELWYN TIMES dISCOVER New market draws the crowds on opening day The opening day of the new Market 254 in West Melton on August 25 was a great success, organiser Taylah Spicer says. “The opening day was everything I could have wished for and more. We had over 300 customers through the gates, and with 30- plus stalls and plenty more already booked for the following weeks it can only get better from here,” Taylah said. “Some of our most popular stalls are fresh fish, fresh bakery goods, hot coffee, sweet treats, and homemade and handcrafted goods.” There are also hot breakfasts and delicious food on offer all day, while a free stall for sausage sizzle fundraising is available for local organisations to raise funds for their clubs. There will be live music every week during the market, with tables, chairs and other seating where people can relax for a while and listen, Taylah says, and there is free off-street parking including wheelchair and disabled parking. “Dogs are welcome, too – we even have a few stalls for them!” Taylah says the market was started to meet the growing demand for a large, highquality market in the area. “The population in the West Melton area, let alone the surrounding areas of Selwyn, are doing nothing but growing and the markets were getting smaller. With several markets closing down, we knew something needed to happen and so we thought, why not have our own market. “So for the last four months it’s been nothing but planning and organisation, finding the perfect stalls to complement each other and making sure all the final touches were ready to go for the opening day on August 25.” New stalls of different varieties are welcome, Taylah says. The cost is $20 a stall. To enquire, email Taylah at market254@outlook.com facebook.com/ market254 9.30am - 1Pm every SaturDay rain or SHine!
