Relaxed friendly Saturday morning market with lots of great food.
Nov 2020
A friendly Saturday morning market by the river. Go hungry as there are lots of great food stalls. Make sure you buy honey from the guy at The Forgotten World Cabin - it's amazing! He was near the main road in one of the side branches of the market. I really wish I'd bought 2 jars.

Where better to be on a beautiful autumn Saturday
Mar 2020
This market is beautifully located on the grassy bank of the Whanganui River. There was a wide range of stalls with arts and crafts and bargain goods. I had the best steak and egg sandwhich I have ever had at a market stall. Very good value and perfect for lunch while sitting on a seat looking out over the river. Great music too from buskers. Very lively and bustling.

Market stalls bursting with artisan crafts
Jan 2020
With the sounds of music from an old organ truck and the paddle steamer drifting along the river there is no better way to spend a Saturday morning visiting the river market.
You are spoiled for choice in this lively market.
Original handcrafts by the artisans selling everything from arts, crafts, clothing, food and much more.
A great atmosphere so grab a snack from a food truck and meander through the market stalls.
Some have eftpos and others just take cash.

Plenty of stalls to suit all interests
Oct 2019
Busy, lively street market held down by the river every Saturday. It's a chance to chat with locals, buy locally made food, buy crafts and soak up the atmosphere. There was also a Scottish pipe band when we were there and an organ. Even if you don't want to buy anything it's a good way to spend time if going on the Waimarie paddlesteamer which also leaves from the nearby dock.

Lovely Street Market on Saturdays
Mar 2019 • Couples
This is a particularly nice street market. Well worth visiting if you are in Whanganui on a Saturday morning. Visit Auntie Anne's Manuka Honey shop and her daughter's Kawakawa remedies next door, and nearby you will find a wood turners stall where they usually have a lathe set up demonstrating turning. Often making perfectly balanced spinning tops which are light enough to take anywhere is the world. They have a list of all the countries that tourists have taken them too. And between the two are pancakes to die for. You will find all kinds of food, drink, arts and crafts. Delightful!

Stroll through the market
Jul 2018 • Family
If you're in Wanganui on a Saturday morning, ensure you have a stroll through the market.
A variety of food and crafts on offer with almost too many to choose.

Hey Sugar makes exceptional Hot Chocolates - rich and velvety with homemade marshmallows, sauce + sprinkles.
If you fancy a crepe be prepared for a wait but it is well worth it!

Good Saturday Market
Mar 2018 • Couples
It was quite good when visiting Whanganui at Saturday morning and found this Saturday Market. Location was really good at the riverside of the mighty Whanagnui River. At the town centre this market is close to all attractions at the town centre area. From food and drink, souvenirs, bric-a-brac, clothes, local products etc. you can find here. We bought Thai food and pies, with fruit juices, yummy. A giant chess board available here, nice.
