Sumner Sunday Market

Sumner Village Green

The Sumner Sunday Market happens from 10am to 2pm on the Village Green from October to April.  This LIVS site was formerly the public library, and LIVS worked with Sumner Community and Christchurch City Council to make the land available for the market.

LIVS role:

Site access, CCC negotiations, legal agreements, liability insurance

About this project

The market is a mixture of arts, homewares, clothing, crafts, jewellery and food.  The non-profit initiative changes every week, there are some regular sellers but new stalls and live entertainment are sourced each week to add variety.

The project is community driven, and locals in Sumner have even started new businesses just to be a part of it.
