Good Friday Farmers Market
Nov 2021 • Solo
I went for the first time on Canterbury anniversary day so it was pretty busy and yes a wee walk from where I parked the car. Good variety of stalls. Brought some wonderful local honey. Plenty of bread, cheese, meat, fish, veggie, herb and spices stalls. Also plenty of coffee and takeaway food for all. Was good to see a vegan food truck. Good place for garden plants and fresh flowers as well.

Expensive

Parking is an issue. The price of the produce is on the high end. For an organic and environmentally aware market was disappointed to see so many vendors with plastic single use containers for food/drinks and even the plant vendor was providing his product in plastic carrier bags which have been banned! Not a market for anyone looking to make less impact on the environment after all. Disappointed. Nice for a stroll around.

Food, Friendly and Fun

This is a Real farmers market with predominantly food and produce including flowers and plants. There is a reasonable variety and all are good quality. The site is clean, tidy and easily accessible. Coffee carts provide the essential coffee fix and there is outdoor seating plus live music to give the all round experience. Great atmosphere. My only complaint this time was that I paid the highest price ever for a coffee! A surprise from a coffee cart with little overheads.

Excellent Friday Market
Nov 2019 • Couples
I generally go on a Friday stat day and ventured there around 10am on show day in November. The place was busy and had plenty of great stalls selling all sorts of things such as baking, Olive Oil, wine, vegetables, seedlings, meat, Eggs, fruit, exotic mushrooms, cheese, olives, nuts, etc etc. Also there are several craft stalls and several food trucks serving a variety of different styles of food. If you are in the area on a Friday morning then it is definitely worth a visit particularly on a Stat day.

Friday visits have stopped
Jun 2019
sorry about this but as a dog lover i take exception to complaints about dogs especially at a 'COUNTRY' market. I used to love our Friday visits and I always ensure that our pup had been toileted before we went in. It started with not letting her sit on my lap while i had a cup of coffee while my wife shopped, So I went and sat under a tree well away from other diners now it is a total ban. Thanks for nothing won't be coming back

With live music, great coffee, fresh vegetables, awesome bakeries - we loved our morning. Living close by, the market is a way I buy treats for the weekend along with cheese and vegetables(especially the rocket greens!!)

Oh my God how much did you say those caulis were This is where you go if you want to get your veges for twice the price of the shops. Tastes fresher or does it. Chemical free or is it You decide

2 mustangs? Are you having a laugh. As if the name wasn’t enough to question your ridiculous critique then your chained tiger blows it out of the water. What on earth are you doing at a farmers market! Say no more please.
