A relaxing country market set around a rustic 115 year old barn and amongst mature trees on one of Mid Canterbury's historic country runs 'Valetta', approximately 25 minutes inland from the Ashburton CBD. Easy to find - on the road between Rakaia and Geraldine and nice and handy to Methven, Mount Somers and Mayfield village. Free entry and plenty of parking handy to the market; so get a group of pals and a picnic together and join us on 24 February.

We're delighted that Robyn Valentine from Dress Up & Dance will be bringing her unique and exquisite tutus, fairy dresses, wings, wands, crowns, troll hair and unicorn headbands to our Country Market this Saturday. Look at the gorgeous photographs - every little girl's dream to have these I'm sure. Robyn tells me she's been working on some new items - tails and "ears", in sets or separate for mice, cats and dogs and hopes to have some of them with her this Saturday. Sound wonderful.

Thrilled to have the Methven Historical Society as our guest at this Saturday's Country Market. Catch up with the latest on the new Methven Museum, maybe sign up as a member and check out their fund-raising table for some tasty chutneys and preserves.

What a talented group of craftspeople we have participating in the Valetta Country Market this Saturday. Janet from JL.dizzy Designs is a perfect example with her beautiful hand-crafted stained glass objects. These timeless creations will brighten any home. So many gorgeous items to choose from this Saturday.

So impressed with all the clever people out there who are repurposing nostalgic items and giving them a new life. Vinyl records for example - so many uses when you're finished with them on the turn-table. Of The Record are coming to our Country Market with all sorts of "groovy" vinyl items - bowls, vases, book ends, earring stands and lots more. Even the album covers get a new lease of life as tissue boxes! So reasonably priced as well.

Thrilled that Julie Adam (aka "The Kite Lady) from Skylines & Bylines will be at our Market this Saturday. What a brilliant opportunity to buy a kite (every home should have at least one!) or a jazzy windsock to fly on the patio or in the garden. Kites make a brilliant gift for kids of all ages and you're welcome to have a test drive out on the paddock while you're here at Valetta.

Julie's Gems from Ashburton will be at our 24 February Country Market, bringing a wonderful range of quality jewellery to tempt the fussiest jewellery collector. Owners Julie and John are always great to talk to about jewellery and even better they always have some great "specials" as well.

Author Gerald Sandrey will be at our Country Market next Saturday 24 Feb., with copies of his popular book 'THE LEGEND OF MT WHITE STATION'. Mt White Station is the largest high country station in Canterbury and the diverse and desolate country that makes up the place has held an irresistible allure for men for decades. Gerald's book is full of tales regarding those who have committed themselves to the extreme weather and isolation of the place only to finally admit defeat, while others have endured, raising families and forming bonds with their fellow station workers and the land itself. 'The Legend of Mt White Station' is a great read and our Market provides a perfect opportunity to purchase a copy and have it signed by the author. Gerald Sandrey was raised on a South Canterbury farm and spent his life working on the land. He was fortunate to be able to spend time at Mt White Station while assisting with several fencing projects and became fascinated by the station. After a great deal of research on Gerald's part the rest is, as they say ....... history!
