Mannix Market a sell-out success
Transform Manukau’s annual Mannix Market took place over the weekend with locals pouring into the square to buy up large and support budding entrepreneurs.
A joint venture between Panuku Development Auckland, The Southern Initiative and Young Enterprise, Mannix Market showcased groups from Alfriston College, Al-Madinah School, Aorere College, De La Salle College, Manurewa High School, Papatoetoe High School, One Tree Hill College and Southern Cross Campus.
There were 30 stalls on the day selling everything from South Auckland-made food to arts and crafts, designer gifts and décor. Several stalls were so popular they sold out of product, while market-goers were treated to live music and cultural performances from South Auckland’s finest, up and coming talent.
$500 cash prizes were awarded to Poly Ako from Aorere College for best dressed stall, JPJ from Papatoetoe High School for best customer service and the most innovative product award went to Venture-Preneurs from Manurewa High School for their diversity dolls.
Congratulations to all the students who participated in the year’s event, we can’t wait to see what you have in store for us next year.
