Such a great place, my 2nd visit and took my 13 year old who loved chatting to the stall holders, and trying the food. Nice to have samples, and lots of different food to try, showcasing the district. Went early - so no queues which was great, especially for the coffee. Stand out was @damsoncollect lovely plum relish, flavoured olive... More

I visit the markets when ever I go to Hawkes Bay and have never been disappointed. The selection of good is incredible and everything is of a very high standard. The owners of the stalls are engaging and very passionate about their products. A must see

The Farmers Market is a tradition that goes way back but is literally fresh every week. The products can only come from or be produced in the region which, given the fertile soil of the Hawkes Bay, means the flavour and the variety are second to none. The products are mainly driven by the seasons but the growing band of... More

This is primarily a food market where a wide variety of food can be tested, and bought. There are a few breweries/wineries featured too. There is plenty to choose from, but best to be there early as the best stuff gets snapped up by the locals quite early on. Once you know what you are after, its quick to get... More

A great way to taste and purchase local produce. There is loads of parking and the setup makes for easy trying and purchasing of produce. It seems to appeal to all ages so great for families. This is something I like to do when ever I am in the Bay.

Great to see such a vibrant bustling market with so much on offer. Everything sold is grown or produced by the stall holders - everything from fresh fruit and veges, pastries, olive oils and chutneys, vegan and organic produce, chocolates and fresh fruit ice cream! It's a foodie's delight, plus there's live music. Highly recommend if you're in the area... More
