A local hero has come to the rescue for Hobsonville Point residents, particularly city commuters.

Farmers Market vendor, Karen Radd, has extended the opening hours of her business, ‘Local Hero Coffee Works’, to include weekday mornings. As well as serving up hot and cold drinks and tasty treats at the Farmers Market each weekend, she is now selling coffee and coffee beans, tea, hot chocolates, ginger lattes, scones and muffins from her usual spot at The Landing from 6:30am to 11:30am Monday to Friday.

“Coffee is the morning ritual that helps you begin your day in high spirits,” says Karen, who uses organic milk in all her hot beverages.
