Catch the Miles Toyota Breeze Street Team down there and make sure you say hi!

Where: 16 Kahu Road, Riccarton, Christchurch.

​When: Open every Saturday 9am - 1pm.

Created from a desire to easily serve local, seasonal ingredients and produce to the people of Christchurch. The market has grown from 10 stalls to now over 80 stalls each Saturday. Some of the original stall holders from the beginning are still with them today.

With the best of Canterbury's produce on offer, Hummingbird coffee and live music, the market is a must-do every week. As mentioned in Lonely Planet  - "Things to do in Christchurch" list

The market is widely acclaimed for both the quality and diversity of its fresh farm products, and artisan and prepared foods. It is renowned throughout the country as one of the top farmers markets to visit. We aim to make sure that the actual stallholders are the producers themselves – people who grow, rear or bake the food that they sell.

Ask questions, explore their knowledge, get recipe ideas and find out what each stall holder has to offer.

Having started in 2003 they are Christchurch's largest Saturday Farmers' Market and are located in the beautiful and historic grounds of Riccarton House and Bush.

​They encourage walking, biking, scooting, running, skipping and jumping along to the market as well.

​Please make sure to bring a sturdy bag to hold your shopping or pick up one of the CHCH Farmers' Market bags for just $8 from the Info stall.

Parking is not available on the grounds of Riccarton House but parking is available on the surrounding streets.
