The Riccarton Market has a strong focus on supporting the local community. All extra funds are donated right back to the community through the Rotary Club of Riccarton, and the owners of the market, The Riccarton Rotary Charitable Trust. To date, they have donated $2.5 million dollars back into the community. So while you do your shopping at the Riccarton Market, you are also helping to support the local community.

The Riccarton Market has a very large variety of stallholders offering foods from all around the world to be eaten at the market or taken away, live local talent on our Food Court stage, fresh flowers, produce, and bakery items. Clothing for all ages and sizes, shoes, beauty products, secondhand tools, antiques and collectibles, books, a huge variety of plants galore, beautiful Pounamu, jewelry, arts and crafts, children's entertainment, and a large number of stallholders with their very own New Zealand made products.
