The Christchurch Farmers' Market is your Saturday spot.

Now, it's more important than ever to be buying consciously and sustainably and supporting local.

There's no better way to start off your weekend than to head down to Riccarton House and Bush for the Christchurch Farmers' Market. The market is nestled under 100-year-old trees alongside the Avon River and the beautiful 1856 homestead, surrounded by a 1.8 hectare protected native bush called ‘Puringamatou’.

Overwhelmed with choices of the finest handmade, locally sourced delicacies, we guarantee this market will not leave you disappointed. The market also showcases live music, giving local artists the opportunity to share their talent.

Starting back in 2004, the Christchurch Farmers' Market is one of Christchurch's longest-running markets. Every Saturday starting from 9 am, you can come to be amazed and spoiled for choice with the finest handmade, local, fresh, and quality items.

Covid put a huge strain on a lot of these stallholders as, during the lockdown, the market was not permitted to operate, leaving many of the businesses struggling. Many of these stallholders use the market as a huge source of income, therefore Covid had a huge effect on them. 

Here at Fever FM, we encourage you to take the extra trip to shop and support locally, you won't regret it!

Rain or shine, the Christchurch Farmers Market is held every Saturday from 9 am-1 pm.
