Just 45 minutes out of Central Auckland, The Clevedon Village Farmers' Market is a breath of fresh air, with fresh local produce and products, from biltong to pretzels, quails eggs to honey.
Way back when it was founded in 2005, the vision was to provide a venue to promote and sell fresh, high-quality local produce directly to the public. Today, The Clevedon Village Farmers' Market is that and more. It now aims to preserve the rural way of life and local food systems that are now rapidly disappearing from the greenbelt surrounding Auckland.

A visit to the market is a genuine farm-to-table experience. At each stall, you meet the grower of the produce and can learn more about the food you eat. The market is a proud mainstay of the Clevedon community, and as well as being a great place to immerse yourself in that community, the market provides opportunities for the area.

The flourishing market has over 60 seaonal and permanent stalls (scroll down for a full list), making it popular for locals and visitors alike, not to mention the idyllic and family-friendly rural atmosphere. With stalls for cheese, berries, biltong, fruit, tomatoes, baked goods, juice, hot sauce, honey, a deli, a butcher, a pizza oven, soap, and even dog food (to name a just few) a trip to the market can replace a trip to the supermarket...and provide a much nicer experience.

If there is a better way to support local, learn about where your food comes from and spend a Sunday morning, we haven't heard of it. See you there.
