Lovely sunny morning visiting with Uk visitor spent at the market. Excellent selection of produce and we sampled much of the products for sale as samples provided. Was lovely having the live music in the back ground. We left loaded down with scrummy artisan bread, olives, heirloom plants, manuka honey, fruit and a lovely coffee to drink on way home.... More

I loved this market. It was so lovely to walk through all the stalls and sample amazing foods and preserves. We arrived 5 minutes early so the weather was still cool, there was plenty of parking and the crowds minimal at that stage. We were very happy we did arrive early as there were no lines at the stalls and... More

Ask anyone local about the Farmer's Market and you will find it, every Sunday morning, from 9 till the crowd wanes (around 2pm, if it is a sunny day). Easily found, as Hastings is a tidy town, and ample car parking between the trees and on the adjoining field. Wheelchair and buggy accessible, I think, if you can negotiate the... More

Usually when I find my wallet empty I look for the mrs to see if she has taken all my cash. However I found my wallet empty because there was so much good food. Ps the market cooks better than the mrs as well. 10/10.

This is a very popular market held at the Hawkes Bay Showground in Hastings Best time to visit is probably between 9 am and noon Plenty of good parking and only about a 50 meter walk to the market place

Found this by chance - and very pleased we did. Lovely spot, well set out for ease if moving the crowds, good selection of produce, plus good coffee (although they could do with a few more coffee sellers to ease the queues). The choice between bacon toastie or muesli for breakfast was too hard so I had both.

Worth the visit. Fresh produce and great variety. Every Sunday all year around. A few extra food carts might be worth while.
