Visited the Market today on what has been Dunedin's coldest day of the year so far. Snow flurries down to sea level. The weather didn't matter though as the warmth, friendliness and enthusiasm of all the stall holders totally made up for it. The abundance of fresh vegetables, meat, cheeses and breads makes a visit to the Saturday morning market... More

What a wonderful market to visit on a Saturday morning. Lots of very interesting stalls and so many of them organic. My wife felt that if she lived in Dunedin she would do the weekly shop here. Well worth visiting and having breakfast here, the crepes were fantastic and several outlets where you can get your morning coffee.

This was my favorite farmers market of all we went to in New Zealand. We always enjoy seeing local culture in these events so go out of our way to get to them. I truly enjoyed this one and wished we could have had more time there. The mix of foods and crafts made it interesting and we indulged in... More

Farmers market is open only on weekend and it is situated at the railway station. There are many stalls selling local produce and some with free tasting. There are also plenty of food to snack on as you walk along. A must visit when you are travelling to otago.

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
