Sundays in the Bays have been highlighted by the Browns Bay Market for many years now. With a mix of regular and changing stall-holders selling fresh produce, bric-a-brac, clothing, tools, plants and flowers, free range eggs, honey and hot food, it helps raise funds for Coastguard North Shore's projects. The market is one of few community markets still in operation in New Zealand. On a breezy Sunday, 24th June, a team of Rangitoto College Year 12 Business Studies students were selling their hand-made kites, and other local schools are often there selling their creative wares. Local residents, including those new to New Zealand plus visitors from further afield, enjoyed the sunshine and happy interactions between buyers, sellers and browsers. The market is open every Sunday except Easter Sunday from 7am - midday.
