THIS SUNDAY at Alberton Market Day!

Rendell McIntosh from Alberton

Get your avocados fresh from the growers - Kamai Ranges Orchard, Katikati ($5 bags and avos both ready to eat and to ripen), the first season's strawbs, blueberries and delicious Campari tomatoes from Sweet Red Strawberries, Helensville, as well as produce grown by Mt Albert locals at Sanctuary Community Organic Garden!

If you want them at the market please come by to grab a few avos and a punnet of strawbs! It applies to all the stalls but particularly the produce ones - if they dont have a good day we cant get them back! Lots of work for these growers to get their produce to market and there is waste and loss if it doesn't sell. Please come by to support 'em if you want them!

Exciting new specialty produce vendors this month include Savour (dairy-free nut cheese) and Milk 2.0 - Plant based milks. Lots of your favourite regulars like Cazador Delicatessen, Salash Delicatessen, Zino's Preserves, Delboys, Lulu's Tonics, Our Harvest Preserves, Foundry Chocolate, Grandma Jenkins Fruit Cakes (Christmas cakes!), Queen of Tarts (Christmas tarts!) Grownup Donuts and Otti & Olli return with their delicious artisanal goodies! Grab some gorgeous groceries and treats you wont find in the supermarket.

Alberton Market Day! Sunday 8 November. 10am-2pm. FREE ENTRY.
100 Mt Albert Road, Mt Albert.

Missing French teen Eloi Rolland: Friends and family still have no answers a year on

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

In 2019, French teenager Eloi Rolland arrived in New Zealand to study. He partied, got a job and made friends. But six months later he disappeared without a trace. A year on, police say “his fate remains unknown” and his case looks set to be referred to the coroner. Caroline Williams reports.

During his time in Auckland, Rolland went to the zoo, enjoyed nights out, worked at a popular bar, dabbled in modelling and, with friends, visited Piha on the rugged west coast.

Before his disappearance, Rolland expressed to his family that he wished to visit Piha again, and on March 6 last year, he did just that.

He has not been seen or heard from since.

“Each day we feel more and more worried and more helpless," his father Thierry Rolland tells Stuff.
