About the Market
The Kaiapoi Farmers Market is a not-for-profit community market established in 2005 that focusses on local producers and products. All profits are put back into the market and the wider community.
We believe in bringing fresh produce and value for money to our community. We support stalls that are bringing artistan products that a created or grown locally. We support education about organics, compositing and other related topics.
Our stallholders are all knowledgable and enjoy answering questions and meeting the community.
Becoming a stall holder is easy. The costs are minimal and we like to support newcomers to the market. If you are interested in having a stall please don't hesitate to contact us for advice.
ATMs are located at Kiwibank & Post Officek and inside New World on Charles Street; Toilets available just along the road at Morgan Williams Reserve;
Fishing rod and mountain bike hire available at Kaiapoi i-Site.
The Kaiapoi Farmers Market was started in 2005 by Angela O'Donnell and Faye Thompson. Angela tells the story of trying to find locally grown and pickled gherkins with much frustration. Her European background from Germany was accustomed to local village markets where local farmers and growers would offer their produce to local customers.
So Angela and Faye found some local growers keen to start the market which ran very effectively til 2010.
Robyn Eyles took over the market management in 2013 and worked hard with her team of helpers - Linda Stark, Faye Thompson and Cathy Richards. Early 2014 Robyn had to give up her work and handed over the market to Jacqui Jeffrey.Kids can have a stall and sell items they have made. No cost for childrens stall.
