Have been to this market twice over the last two years. First time in March when all of the seasonal stone fruit was around, and again on New Years Day. Anyone visiting the Hawkes Bay must attend this event. Excellent for fresh produce, but I really like it for the variety of cheeses, pickles, jams, sauces,bread and coffee. Highly recommend.

Always fun, lots of delicious fresh produce, artisan meats and cheeses but my favorite is the honey. Come early and have breakfast maybe a waffle and coffee or for the more adventurous a dosa or paella. There is always music and the plant lady has interesting and different plants. Every Sunday all year, so if you are in the Hawkes... More

Really worth a look there is great coffee served and a great selection of fresh local produce to buy. Pricing is not too bad but move round check out the stalls always compare pricing. Lovely cupcakes and there was even live music.

Lovely sunny morning visiting with Uk visitor spent at the market. Excellent selection of produce and we sampled much of the products for sale as samples provided. Was lovely having the live music in the back ground. We left loaded down with scrummy artisan bread, olives, heirloom plants, manuka honey, fruit and a lovely coffee to drink on way home.... More

I loved this market. It was so lovely to walk through all the stalls and sample amazing foods and preserves. We arrived 5 minutes early so the weather was still cool, there was plenty of parking and the crowds minimal at that stage. We were very happy we did arrive early as there were no lines at the stalls and... More

Ask anyone local about the Farmer's Market and you will find it, every Sunday morning, from 9 till the crowd wanes (around 2pm, if it is a sunny day). Easily found, as Hastings is a tidy town, and ample car parking between the trees and on the adjoining field. Wheelchair and buggy accessible, I think, if you can negotiate the... More
