About Us

Our Vision

The Grey Lynn Farmers Market opened on Sunday 6 September 2009 to provide the community with access to fresh, local produce in a unique, vibrant inner-city location.

Principles that guide our market:

  • An alternative to supermarkets

Providing direct access to food growers and producers.

  • Closing the gap between producers and consumers

The Grey Lynn Farmers Market gives shoppers the opportunity to interact with the producers of their food and build relationships with these producers.

The Grey Lynn Farmers Market enables shoppers to know the provenance of products.

  • Community Space

The Grey Lynn Farmers Market is more than just going shopping. We provide a vibrant community experience where locals can come together and get to know one another in their local area. Stallholders are a vital part of the community and a market provides an opportunity for Stallholders to form bonds with each other and their customers.

  • Sustainability

We focus on waste minimisation as a way of reducing our impact on the environment.

We aim to be Zero Waste.

We encourage Stallholders to take a product stewardship approach to their operations.

We must be financially sustainable.

  • Prioritise ethical and local

We give priority at the Grey Lynn Farmers Market to Stallholders who make an effort to use locally sourced ingredients, as well as those who use fair trade, organic and free-range products.

  • Partnership with small growers and producers

We aim to nurture artisan producers and new businesses. We want to give them a direct distribution channel and a chance to gain skills and experience in business to grow.

We expect Stallholders to be partners in building the future of Grey Lynn Farmers Market, just as we are interested in supporting Stallholders’ aspirations.

We encourage Stallholders to collaborate with each other.
