The Little Big Markets have meant that we can connect with our local community - from the people who attend the market, browsing, purchasing or stopping for a chat to get to know about our company, our people and our products, to other stall holders who have businesses that compliment ours, allowing the possibilities of future working relationships. It is a great family to belong to - one where everyone is there to help out and share in each other’s successes.

I love the feeling of community that The Little Big Markets brings to the area. You don’t have to live here to belong to something truly special.

Thanks to the support of The Little Big Markets we are able to connect people who are looking to make a difference. Whether it’s buying one of our fair trade items at our market stall, supporting our local shop or donating to one of our amazing projects CCTNZ is looking forward to making some real change this year! We love having a site at such a local community event as it offers us a space to reach out and explain the difference we are making to so many families and how you can be a part of it. We couldn’t do this without amazing support such as the team behind TLBM’s.

For me its the perfect place to enjoy some sun, music, catch up with friends and meet other people doing amazing, creative things in the bay!

Rachelle and Chris at Little Big Events have been an absolute pleasure to work with, their support towards small local businesses and the community is commendable - It’s a very inspiring and proud movement to be a part of.

The Little Big Markets have become such a BIG part of my life. Over the past year my customers have been able to enjoy shopping Lawson in an outdoor environment that is relaxed, safe and fun! The unique friendships and encouraging community built around The Little Big Markets always inspires me. The Mount really has something special here.

The Little Big Markets is a place where you can go and feel welcomed month after month. They truly make you feel like family and everyone is always so friendly that it feels like you’re seeing your extended family once a month for a fun catchup. No matter what the weather may be doing that day, there may be a horrible wind blowing, the rain could be pouring, the sun might be radiant, everyone is always smiling and having a grand time.

The Little Big Markets Mount Maunganui was the first Market in NZ that I had been to and went woah! These people know what they are doing. I was inspired by the mood of the market, how trendy it is, and how “now” it is. As a young entrepreneur “rocketeer” I saw these markets as the perfect platform to launch Tia’s Tacos - my mobile Mexican American Food Truck. Rachelle and Chris, I will forever be grateful to you for welcoming me on board your fantastic journey to make Tauranga THE place to be.
