ACA has been doing community consultation on the feasibility of a Little Rosebank Market. The Rosebank area of Avondale is geographically separated from the town centre. Apart from a couple of dairies there are no shops within biking or walking distance where people can get their daily needs. We have consulted with the community during the Sirens and Sounds event and have talked to residents at Athletic events in November and December.
Residents welcome the idea of a weekly market and say they would support it. Most people want to be able to do their food shopping locally. Other comments where that it should be a place to meet and affordable.
If you are local and would like to have a stall or would like to be involved then contact us on avondalecommunityaction.org.nz
