Originally set up as a fundraiser for a local community cause by Steph Fraser, the Matakana Christmas Market was an instant hit with the locals. Steph's passion for ethical and local goodness inspired her to create an event without compromising the cool factor. Then located in the Matakana Village, the Matakana Indie Markets success meant it outgrew its premises and moved to its current venue. The Matakana Country Park, just a short 2 minute drive from the Matakana round-a-bout was the perfect venue for this organic expansion. The rustic park, once envisioned as a local farming museum, houses many exciting entities to ensure its a well rounded day to satiate any tastes.
