  • The best farmers market in the land! Great variety of local produce, preserves, meats, baked goods, Juices, etc... Disabled parking available, however I'm not sure how well it's controlled. Note, No dogs are allowed. Lovely coffee & hot foods available if you want breakfast or lunch. The new Dosha Project serving vegetarian & vegan savoury stuffed pancakes!
  • So lucky to be passing through when the market was going on. So much to offer. Such an amazing environment. Felt really good being there. Would love to go back! Support the local community!!
  • Lots of fresh produce and carefully crafted food and drink. Special stuff you can't get at the supermarket, makes it worth the trip. Busy even middle of winter.
  • Great morning out to find Hawkes Bay's finest food and produce! Get your coffee and delicious breakfast! Stock your pantry up for the week with fresh food.
