Backpack On Fire
Small reasonably priced farmers market. Enough to get a few things for a meal but not a ton of vendors when we went in the summer. Some had signs up saying why they weren’t there so we assume it is usually a bit bigger.
Located on Hobson Road opposite the Cathey Cinema, turn right if you are coming down Kerikeri road at the Caltex roundabout.
Market has been operating for over 4 years and will only sells local grown / made foods, is well established amongst locals and visitors, has a good mix of seasonal foods and local wines and lemocello liquor, local Cheeses, breads, fritters, fish, coffee, oils, live music to relax by.
I would recommend for a nice 30 min break, the cafe opposite does a tasty Eggs benedict in half size if you are not too hungry, the post shop and local library is open close by too.
