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

The weekly farmers' market is fantastic, especially in summer - music, great food and coffee to be enjoyed under the large trees dotted about. It's great to get your weekly veges and fruit, meat and fresh baked breads, but also jams, sauces, plants etc. it's lovely to wander around in the sunshine, and take your time, something that doesn't happen...

Haven't been for a while but we used to go weekly and it was one of the highlights of our week. Do yourself a favor and have one of the bacon and egg sandwiches with a Bay espresso coffee.

The parking space lets you expect a bigger market than in actually is, but when you arrive there you find out quickly, that it is not big, but well worth a visit! Fresh food, nice people, lots to try and buy! Good quality foods and happy to spend the extra Dollar! Definitely again!

If staying in Napier follow Marine Parade south rather than Highway 2. Avoids going through Hastings. Absolutely great product at very good prices. The Te Mata fig products were beautiful as well as the avocado and olive oils. Opens early. Good range of local cheeses.
