We visited the farmers market. We bought nothing but perhaps should have skipped breakfast at the motel and eaten here as such a variety.

Very busy market but definitely worth it. There's plenty on offer! Definitely check out the Joyful Vegan caravan and cabinet next to it, you will not be disappointed- there's a reason you have to wait in line. For coffee lovers check out Fat Cat coffee! All in all definitely worth the early Saturday wake up!

Students are back, summer stone fruit abounds, never seen it so busy and the sun streaming down too. What a great asset this market has become

An excellent experience. Fresh produce from all over Otago, with excellent entertainment especially from a Scottish duo on accordion and guitar. The coffee stalls and fast food outlets are excellent and reasonably cheap. It is a Saturday morning must go to.

Set at the end of the Dunedin Railway Station. Just a nice variety of stall holder and quality foods, well worth the visit.

I stopped at a cheese purveyor for a complex Brie and scored some intensely sweet strawberries and a bag of bok choy at a greengrocers. We had bacon butties, my son drank... More

Constantly expanding, and ever popular. The Havoc stall and the Leckies also are standouts for me. Looking forward to fresh chillies being available again too. Its great to do things with the produce of the day, even if she won't let me try the crabs ... Oh well, life is about compromise, and its especially pleasant to visit now the... More
