A moment with Bridget from the Soap Kitchen

What made you decide to get started in craft markets?

It’s a really accessible way to reach customers when you’re starting a new business and costs very little, so it was a bit of a no brainer!

How long have you been running a market stall for?

About five years now, although for the first year it was a just bit of a hobby.

What do you love most about the Wanaka Artisan Market?

It’s local focus.  It’s actually a bit too easy to spend the afternoon catching up with people, but on the other hand it also attracts loads of tourists.  It’s the best of both worlds.

Why Wanaka, what makes this place so amazing?

It’s home, it’s bustling. People want to come to us – we’re very lucky.
