This growing popularity of Farmers’ Markets is something being seen worldwide and for a host of reasons. The awareness (or concern) of what’s in our food and growing demand for regional, unadulterated and organic produce, climate concerns and the investment into local resources, sustainable agriculture as well as influential television chefs pushing fresh seasonal ingredients combined with good old nostalgia and supporting community ideals are just a few of the influences causing Farmers’ Markets to flourish in New Zealand.

Banks Peninsula rated top food district | Stuff.co.nz: "Forget scenery and wildlife - Banks Peninsula is being praised for its 'foodie credentials'.

The district has been named as one of Lonely Planet's 'Top 10 Places to Learn to Cook the Local Cuisine', alongside culinary magnets Chiang Mai and Tuscany.

'With hiking, swimming with dolphins, and kayaking all on offer, you could visit New Zealand's picturesque Banks Peninsula and easily overlook the region's growing foodie credentials,' Lonely Planet's Best in Travel 2011 guide said.

The guide recommended visiting 'raffish' Lyttelton on a Saturday morning for 'one of New Zealand's best farmers' markets' before coming back on Sunday to attend the She Chocolate School in Governor's Bay."
