Arrowtown Farmers Market
For Locals, By Locals
Recently voted the most beautiful small town in NZ, Arrowtown packs a huge punch on the community scale. It’s small and beautiful, has a wonderful selection of shops and an even better offering of cafes and gastro type pubs. The views are spectacular and we wouldn’t be surprised if you fell in love with the ambiance and setting.
And only a 20-minute drive from our front door, this gem of the Wakatipu has wonderful local markets which showcase the very special nurturing talents of the people of Arrowtown and its surrounds’.
Focusing on regional food & beverages and homegrown plants and flowers, this is an ideal way to pass a Sunday morning!
Designed to support the local community, these are not-for-profit markets which are generally run by volunteers, and which help local community groups like schools and sports groups to fundraise. Want some seriously good homemade fudge – you’ll find the best here. Cookies? Yup, those too! And don't forget fig jam, or pear paste or a local blue cheese!
Set on the tree-lined community green which adjourns the characteristic white community library, local stallholders will entertain you with the stories of their wares as well as delight you with their offerings!
Every Sunday 10 am to 2 pm (leisurely Sunday hours!),
Early November to Easter
If you’re up for a wee day trip then we suggest heading out to Arrowtown via Arrow Junction or Lake Hayes and then driving back along Malaghans Road into town and then back around for us – this is a great scenic loop of the Wakatipu.
Head out our driveway and turn RIGHT onto SH6a. Follow this through Frankton, Past Lakes Hayes, PAST Amisfield Winery & Bistro, and then on to Arrow Junction. Turn left at Arrow Junction onto McDonnells Road. Stay Straight. This road turns into Centennial Ave, which will take you directly to the markets in the centre of town! Seriously easy!
