3 Reasons why we love The Remarkables market
As most of you know, we had the amazing opportunity to open a pop-up shop in Wanaka for a few months last year. It was an incredible experience. We met loads of inspirational people and learnt a whole heap of new lessons in the process as well! We feel truly blessed to have had the chance to open our doors and our hearts to you all.
Our time at the shop came to an end in December last year and since then we’ve been itching to get back out into the world to meet more of you. Hearing your stories really inspires us to develop patterns and knit kits we know you’ll love. Plus, we’re eager to see your reactions and hear feedback on our amazing NZ merino yarn that our suppliers work so hard to produce for us.
That’s why we’ve decided to re-instate our regular stall at the Remarkables Market as of next weekend (17th Feb). We have a schedule of Saturdays between 9am and 2pm (until the 14th of April), you’ll be able to visit us and have a look and a feel of our new Smooth and chunky yarns and knit kits!

But that’s not the only reason we think you should come to the market. If you’ve not yet been to the Remarkables Market in Queenstown, it really is something to be experienced. If you need any more persuading, have a look at the top three reasons we love it there so much (and it’s only partly to do with the delicious food options!)
- It’s all about the love
One of the things we love the most about the Remarkables Market is the fact that everyone, whether they are selling or buying, is there because they love supporting their communities and local artisans. People really respect the hard work that’s gone into creating the unique arts, crafts, products and food on display at this charming market. The upshot of this is a really supportive, non-judgmental and inviting atmosphere. If you know anything about us, you’ll know that’s what we’re all about!
- It brings families together
It’s a rare thing these days that you can go somewhere the whole family will find something to interest them – especially if your family consists of as many different interests and ages as most do! But time and time again, we’ve seen it happen at the Remarkables Market. We’ve personally heard from a few mothers and daughters (and even grandmothers) about how the beginners knit kits they bought from us at the market strengthened their relationships. They discovered a shared love they never knew they had. And with so many other delights on show, you’re bound to find something the whole family can enjoy together.
- Meeting you!
One of the most important things we want to achieve here at The Woven, is to create knit kits and wool that make peoples lives better. In fact, you might say it is the most important thing to us. That’s why we really love meeting everyone and hearing about your motivations for knitting and how it has affected your lives. Likewise, if you are new to knitting or still have a few questions before you commit to starting your first blanket, pop down and have a chat. We’ve got easy patterns and kits with everything you need – perfect for learning how to knit!
We really hope to see you there – if you want any more information on this great little market, check out their website here: RemarkablesMarket
Until then, happy knitting! xxx
