Shop fresh & local every Saturday 


Come shopping at Parnell Farmers' Market this weekend! Bump into friends, have a coffee and stock up on the freshest fruit, vegetables, meat, flowers, delectable bakery, deli produce and more every weekend, brought to you by the producers themselves.

NEW LOCATION! While the Jubilee Hall is being earthquake proofed in 2019, we've moved our market a few metres away to the lawn between the Birthcare Auckland and the Blind Foundation. See our accessibility page for details and parking info.


Parnell Farmers' Market has been open, rain or shine, every Saturday from 8am to 12 noon for the past 11 years. (We do take a few weekends off over Christmas and New Year's!)

The Market was started by Parnell Trust as another way to bring members of our community together. It's been a great success and we love seeing people who attend our classes, use our venue, attend our early childhood centres and our programmes for school children as they return throughout the year.

New Zealand Herald writer Hayley McLarin reviewed our market in for the 1st September, 2018  issue of Canvas Magazine. Hayley notes that Parnell Farmers' Market, unlike many others, is an authentic farmers' market. Her article is a mouth-watering review of the varied produce available from our more than 30 weekly stallholders. Her verdict: Definitely worth a visit – there is everything you need here, and the vendors are a lovely bunch.


"This is a wonderful market - extremely well run by Lucy and the stall holders are welcoming and have great produce.  There is nothing better than buying directly from the growers."  - weekly market shopper, January 2018.


 "A must-stop for those who have their finger on the pulse when it comes to all things worth devouring"  said Auckland trendsetter, The Denizen, when it voted Parnell Farmers' Market Auckland's Best Inner City Market for Foodies in November 2014.

Rave Reviews for Parnell Farmers' Market

"Auckland's Best Inner City Market for Foodies"
Auckland trendsetter The Denizen voted Parnell Farmers' Market Auckland's Best Inner City Market for Foodies in November 2014, saying that it's a "must-stop for those who have their finger on the pulse when it comes to all things worth devouring."

"There's good reason for why the New York Times raved about this market. A must-stop for those who have their finger on the pulse when it comes to all things worth devouring, this is one where it pays to arrive hungry. We suggest making a bee-line for the Brooklyn Dogs stall, just follow the alluring scent of barbecue bangers and choose from The Brooklyn Classic, The Ground Hog and The New Porker. (Every Saturday, 8am-12pm, Jubilee Building, 545 Parnell Road)"


Fresh produce sold by over 20 stallholders at Parnell Farmers' Market


New York Times travel writer, Ingrid K. Williams visited Auckland recently and included our market in her story "36 Hours in Auckland, New Zealand". After a walk through Auckland Domain, Williams writes: " When hunger strikes, stray a block from the southern edge of the park to the Parnell Farmers' Market (545 Parnell Road;, where stalls overflow with local products. Bite into a bacon-and-egg bap (sandwich) with spicy tomato sauce while listening to a musician strum a guitar, and then sample the goods at the Hakanoa Ginger Beer stand and the mouthwatering varieties at the NZ Cheeseman stall."
