It is a great way to connect with the season of the region”  and Chef of the Nation Marc Soper says “It is more pleasurable to be cooking with the freshest of ingredients knowing where they are sourced and how they are produced, having a connection to the producer is a more social aspect where the guest gets to be guided on a journey of their plate of how items are produced, where,  who and how there is a connection”

FMNZ


Who we are
Farmers’ Markets New Zealand (FMNZ) is a membership organisation representing fresh food markets selling direct to the consumer.

Our Mission Statement is to:

"Support and promote the development of Farmers' Markets in New Zealand."

What is a Farmers’ Market?

There are 3 Golden Rules for Farmers' Markets and their stallholders:

(1)    A Farmers' Market is a food market (e.g. no arts, craft, bric-a-brac) with some exceptions for plants and flowers. 

(2)    This food is produced within a defined local area (each market can define their local region)

(3)    The vendor must be directly involved in the growing or production process of the food (e.g. no middle men, on-sellers, wholesalers, retailers, etc... )
