Matakana Markets


This photo was taken probably around 8 years ago in Matakana on a Saturday morning when they hold their weekly farmers market.  Unfortunately with this region being part of Auckland they are under level 4 lockdown.

Linking up with Weekend Reflections and The Weekend Roundup.

I like the picture and the nice red color.
It wasn't a lock-down but a lot of the businesses in my area closed for about a week and a lot of people stayed home in March of 2020. It felt sad and depressing. That's when I started going on long evening walks which helped a lot. That was a year and a half ago and we've been fully open ever since. It's hard to imagine still being locked down.
