On the first Sunday of every month one of the largest most vibrant markets sets up in the Main Street of Gisborne. The sheer volume of stalls on the day means that you need to set aside at least a few hours to cover the whole market. With plenty of activities for kids (jumping castle, petting zoo etc) you can take the whole family along. My favorite area is the food section with plenty of different types of cuisines all crammed into one spot vying for your buisness, there is always something new to try.
The craft section is equally as impressive from everything from locals making and selling cute baby knits through to spectacular hand carved wood furniture and everything in between.
Not to mention the home made jams, and sauces and fresh vegetables! It is a day out and well worth a look!
