The upcoming Ōtaki Kids Market, set for Sunday, 8th October from 10 am to 2 pm, promises a unique gathering that celebrates the entrepreneurial spirit of the coast’s young citizens. With a special emphasis on fostering talent and business acumen, this market offers rangatahi and tamariki, aged 5 to 19, an opportunity to become the stars of the show.

Boasting over 40 stalls, managed by more than 60 enthusiastic young individuals, the market will feature an array of products ranging from handmade crafts to scrumptious baked treats.

Highlights from the young entrepreneurs will include Millie, who will be introducing her handmade dog bandanas, while Brodi partners with his grandma for a candy floss extravaganza. Nail enthusiasts can drop by Lauren’s nail painting stand, while soft toy lovers will be thrilled with Kaia and Ayvah’s offerings. Not to be missed are Tula’s unique artistic creations, Harper’s gourmet cupcakes that are as delicious as they are beautiful, and Talyessin, a prodigious entrepreneur, will wow with 3D printed products.

In addition to these budding business ventures, visitors can look forward to live performances by the Pretty Boys band from Ōtaki College. Plus, local rangatahi will be showcasing their artistic talents at the face painting stall.

As if the celebration of youthful enthusiasm wasn’t enough, attendees can also partake in free crafting, rock painting activities, and relish fresh fruits courtesy of Ōtaki New World. Ensuring the smooth operation of the event are the ever-reliable helpers from the Ngati Toa Sea Scout Group.

To add a feather in its cap, the Ōtaki Kids Market recently earned the recognition of being named Runner Up in the Wellington Airport Regional Community Awards, under the Education & Child/Youth Development category.

This day promises not just a shopping experience, but a testament to the bright future of the Kāpiti Coast. Join in celebrating Kāpiti’s young stars, only at the Ōtaki Kids Market!
