Hobsonville Point’s farmers market will be open this weekend tomorrow (Saturday) and Sunday as usual. The market is open each weekend from 9am to 1pm.

While our thoughts remain first and foremost with those who have lost loved ones, and those with damage to their homes, we felt it was important to keep the market open if we could as a valuable community focal point.

Collection boxes will be set up at the market to collect donations for the families of the workers who were victims of Thursday’s weather event at the construction site for the new High School. Visitors to the Catalina Café or any of the show homes at Hobsonville Point can also make donations. The collection boxes will collect funds until Christmas. Hobsonville Land Company will make an initial donation of $6,000.
