Arts Centre Market at Ferrymead Village

I’m really pleased to see the Arts Centre Market up and running again and I think the Ferrymead Village is a wonderful venue for it. I’d heard through word of mouth that the market was going to be there today and tomorrow so had to get along to check it out. I’d not been to Ferrymead Village since I was a teenager on holiday in Christchurch, so I was also pleasantly surprised at how fascinating the village is. I’m in denial about it, but I am definitely a steam train buff, and tram buff, trolley bus and anything that is old and motorised buff. I also think Lois Williams’ hand-painted glassware is just so beautiful (pictured above and below).

Arts Centre Market at Ferrymead – what a wonderful combination – it was a beautiful day and people were really enjoying themselves.

    But do you have to pay the entry price for Ferrymead to visit the market?

    Hi Catherine, no you don’t have to pay the entrance fee unless you want to ride on the trains.
