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... )
