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.

..."M"atakana "M"arkets is a twofer! I wonder if lockdowns will ever end?

I haven't been to that market although my late husband and I used to visit Matakana a lot as he had cousins living there. (They still do)

So sad. Ingo went to the market today. Alone. He said, it´s no fun, don´t come along.

Matakana seems to have been the 'in' palce for some years. When I first saw the name I thought of Matakana island near Tauranga and was slightly bewildered. But no. I would love to visit the market. On my 'one-day' list

Love markets. We had our share of lockdowns so I feel your pain.

Must look a little empty now then

I feel for the stall holders, they must be struggling not being able to open as usual. Hopefully they will soon be able to open up again.

Looks like a great market, too bad the area is under lockdown.

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.

Great.

Maori Rock Carvings

One from when we were in Taupo earlier this year is this Maori Rock Carving which is only accessible via water on a boat. We booked a chart...
