Farmers' Market locations throughout New Zealand


Farmers' Markets' of New Zealand

A Farmers’ Market is a food market where local growers, farmers and artisan food producers sell their wares directly to consumers. Vendors may only sell what they grow, farm, pickle, preserve, bake, smoke or catch themselves from within a defined local area. The market takes place at a public location on a regular basis.

For up-to date open hours and contact information please click on the websites of the markets (or the regional organisers websites) listed below. The NZ Farmers Market website is: http://www.farmersmarkets.org.nz/
