Description

You’ll find plenty of specialty foods including venison, pate, homemade breads and baking, pesto and more, along with fresh meats, eggs, wine, preserves, flowers, plants and the usual fruit and veges. The market is held on Fridays from 9am-2pm. Eat seasonally, buy local and live well! A Farmers' market is a food market where local growers, farmers' and artisian food producers sell their wares directly to the consumer. Vendors may only sell what they grow, farm, pickle, preserve, bake, smoke or catch themselves from a defined area. In a country that can grow almost anything, farmers' markets are a rapidly-developing Kiwi phenomenon with over 50 operating throughout New Zealand. As you travel around the country, farmers' markets provide a great insight into the regional heartland and are an ideal place to sample fresh, local fare, meet the locals and experience the New Zealand way of life. Each market reflects its regional difference with the climatic conditions and environmental changes playing a role in the range of produce from north to south. You won't find the sub-tropical fruits of the north on stalls in Southland, nor is it likely the South Island's boutique beers and ocean catches will appear at markets in Northland. In order to be an "authentic" farmers' market, each must be a food-only market, with no resellers allowed, so those who have grown or made the food are the ones selling it. Stalls include chicken, lamb, pork, beef, variety of fresh fish, smallgoods, eggs, wine, patè, fudge, preserves, flowers, plants, seedlings, baking, breads, pizza, seasonal fruits and veggies, herbal teas, macadamia products, pesto, hummus, soaps, shampoos, lotions, bath bombs, lavender products honey, mulch, olive oil and much more......
