Xaeon Henry waits patiently for customers at the Punanga Nui Market yesterday at her stall laden with ripe mangoes, fresh fruit and vegetables

Henry and her family open their stall daily Monday to Saturday from 8am to 2pm.

The market has a variety of stalls that feature handmade crafts, shell jewellery, herbs, assorted plants and beautiful sweet scented ei (flower garlands).

Saturday is the most popular day at the market with some vendors setting up as early as 6am. Stop by and support the stall holders, visitors are welcome and advised to mask up.
