Winter 2014

Winter has arrived at the City Farmers’ Market at Britomart, and there are some delicious new season apples, pears, lemons and limes all ripe for the tasting. Come down and see what’s freshest and best this weekend!

As well as superb produce, you’ll find artisan pastries, fresh juices, French crêpes and classic Kiwi mussel fritters at the market this season, as well as yummy local cheeses, relishes, eggs, olives, meats and just-baked breads.

Live music is a key part of the market’s laid-back ambience, with Britomart FM’s DJs entertaining market-goers every Saturday from 8.30am till 12pm. Come along, grab a coffee or a juice and sit down for a listen!

Parking for market customers is available for a special rate of $6 at Britomart Car Park on the corner of Britomart Place and Quay Street. Bring your parking ticket to the market to be validated and receive the special rate.

Located immediately adjacent to the Britomart Transport Centre, there’s also plenty of public transport to the market. Please bring your own shopping bags with you.

 

We’re an authentic inner-city farmers’ market at the heart of Britomart in Auckland’s CBD. Every Saturday morning, whatever the weather, we bring a bounty of seasonal produce from the Auckland region to the city.

An authentic farmers’ market is a food market where local growers, farmers and artisan food producers sell their wares directly to consumers. Stallholders may only sell what they grow, farm, pickle, preserve, bake, smoke or catch themselves within a defined local area.

City Farmers’ Market was founded in 2006 by a not-for-profit group, inspired by the wonderful local markets in Europe. It is still run as a non-profit enterprise by Cooper and Company, manager of the Britomart precinct.

City Farmers’ Market is proudly affiliated to Farmers’ Markets New Zealand, the governing body supporting authentic farmers’ markets throughout the country.
