Our Farmers' Market

About The Market

Our market came about from a “Placemaking” event held by our local business group, Go Carterton. The event was overseen by Placemaking guru, David Engwicht from Creative Communities.

We wanted to generate a place to go, catch up, see friends whilst also doing the weekly shop. We achieve this goal – and the market has continued to evolve from that initial brief, still doing what we aimed for but in many different ways.

Customers & Stallholders, The Heart Of The Market

CUSTOMERS: The aim for Carterton Farmers’ Market for our customers is to provide regular, reliable, affordable produce right here in our town. And for Carterton residents to have the opportunity to buy local. It supports resilience, minimises carbon-miles and even shares knowledge for local gardeners.

STALLHOLDERS: We endeavour to provide local growers, producers and crafters a platform to sell directly to the consumer. This allows items to be sold to locals and visitors alike, increasing foot traffic and supports the local Carterton economy through increased visibility of these vendors.

COMMUNITY: The market aims to have a positive impact on the Carterton Community. We see it as a hub, a regular place for people to get together. They can share their produce, ideas, advice and stories.
