Christmas Market

11 December 2022, from 12 noon

Just a few more sleeps before our Dom Polski again heaves with visitors making the most of our famous Christmas market.

Our doors will open at 12 noon on Sunday. No earlier, as our stallholders will be setting up their tables.

As usual, our kitchen will be serving freshly cooked pierogi, but there will be heaps of other food to buy and take home: Ania Biazik will again be selling her delicious range of cottage cheeses (twaróg) and her cheese buns, and Ela Chmurzynska has become well-known for her kielbasy, and other Polish cold cuts.

to complement our bar, which has restocked its Polish beer, the team from Barlowska will tempt us with their liqueurs, made from traditional Polish recipes. For those wanting something calmer to drink, Natalia Dudko is bringing her variety of teas, and our own Aga & Aga (Marek and Porczyk) are planning to sell coffee with their cakes and breads.

Although any Polish market will always be food-heavy, there will be stalls for Christmas shoppers looking for something more permanent. Weronika Elanowska is again bringing her tights, socks, and pretty underwear, Allix Sadler has handmade goods, and pet accessories, and Agnieszka Arciszewska is again bringing her Vesu range of scarves.

After the popularity of the Auckland Polish Association’s second-hand book stall at the last market, we are repeating it—probably for the last time. For parents or grandparents wanting new children’s books, Iveta Ongley has a range that should please all age-ranges.

Christmas is a time for children. To cater for them, we are turning the schoolroom into an activity centre for children, where their parents will be able to leave them to make Christmas cards and decorations. There may just be an animal balloon creator in the room too…

As with our Spring Market, all the profit we make will go towards fundraising for a much-needed accessibility toilet in our hall.

That includes the proceeds from the garden stall, which will be on the same grass verge as last time. So, anyone wanting to have a chat while they wait for the hall to open, is very welcome to pop over and peruse through our latest offerings.

See you Sunday!
