Papakura offers you a perfect blend of country and town.
Perched on the edge of the greater Auckland metropolitan area, Papakura’s town centre is a diverse and charming environment in which to shop, eat, work or socialise. With a mix of retail, professional and business support services, the town centre brings everything you need together for a convenient and exciting experience.
The green open spaces of our wonderful parks are a perfect haven for families and children and the playgrounds are a fun and safe diversion for the younger ones. What’s more, getting to and from the town centre is simple, quick and convenient by rail, bus or private car.
So for everything you need to know about Papakura’s busy town centre and all the things that make this the heart of our district, look no further!
The Saturday Market on Broadway is on every Saturday from 8.30 am to 1.00 pm in Broadway Papakura. The Market on Broadway offers a selection of food, health, beauty, clothing, arts and gifts, and entertainment for the whole family.
Even better, the cafes and restaurants of Broadway will be opening early to offer all manner of tasty food and hot drinks for breakfast. The whole of Broadway between Great South Road and O’Shannessey Street will be closed to traffic to create the market environment.
Come on down and check it out!
We’re really keen to talk to local people or groups who are interested in performing at the Market – entertainment just makes the whole day so much more interesting. We’ll be hosting one fundraising stall each week. If you are part of a group that would like to be part of this contact us on the email below.
We do also need a few more volunteers to help with pack-in and other aspects of the Market. If there’s a local group keen to help out the new market this will be a fantastic experience, and it’s not hard work.
Prospective stallholders can register by emailing Tracy Shackleton at firstname.lastname@example.org
