Jammin’ in the Bay

Fruit Bowl Craft Jam, Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 December, Hawke’s Bay

Fruit Bowl Craft Jam is the place to be in the Hawke’s Bay this weekend. This colourful makers’ market, brought to you by Coco and Co, is back once again to continue its mission growing and harvesting the best of Hawke’s Bay craft.

This year Craft Jam explodes with more than 60 stalls, as well as the inaugural Jam Bake-Off (Sunday only), face painting, storytelling, Christmas carols, fire breathers, contortionists, trick ponies, guest appearances by celebrities, juggling Siamese twins and knitting walruses. They said it so it must be true!
