Hundreds turned out to support and help promote young and aspiring entrepreneurs in celebration of International Youth Day yesterday evening at the Constitution Park.

Young and enthusiastic entrepreneurs Joanna Caffery and Hillary Tiro display their range of popular locally made and designed headbands, home-made chutney’s and local honey.

The girls were one of the 29 vendors at the firstever “Night Market” hosted by the Cook Islands Family Welfare Association in partnership with the Cook Islands National Youth Council.

Visit the girls at their “Nanna’s Kitchen” stall on Saturdays at the Punanga Nui Market and purchase some delicious chutney, colourful hair accessories and beaded jewellery.

Helping out at the event was the former president of the National Youth Council, Apii Tumutoa who was extremely pleased with large crowd.

“It’s good to see people coming out in support of our youth and Tereora College students and to see the variety of stalls like crafts, art, meals and fresh produce.”

I bought a Nanna's kitchen banana chutney at the market and it is so DELICIOUS! Well done Joanna and Hillary.

"Nanna's Kitchen" chutney and jams are a hit here at work in Auckland! I'll be placing a big order when we return to Rarotonga in mid September. Just a heads up Averil Caffery.
