Stalls, live music, and entertainment were featured at this year’s Riverton Midwinter Twilight Market held on Saturday, July 29.

Hundreds of people travelled from throughout the region to attend the popular markets which were held in four venues along Palmerston St.

Adding to the twilight event, other retailers and Te Hikoi Southern Journeys were also open.

The next community market event will be held leading up to Christmas in December.

Riverton Twilight Market stallholder Lairka, of Lairka Photography, from Stewart Island, shows a dried rangiora leaf with printed graphics on it. This type of broadleaf was commonly written on and with a postage stamp attached, would be used as a postcard and posted from the Ulva Island Post Office (1872-1923) in Paterson Inlet, Stewart Island, during the early 1900s.
