About us

The Waikato Farmers' Markets began in Hamilton City in March 2006 as a modest bunch of 15 stallholders. Since then we have seen the successful growth of a market in Cambridge and we've recently added the monthly Creative markets - held on the first Sunday of every month alongside the Hamilton Farmers' Market

At the Hamilton Farmers Market on a Sunday morning it is not unusual to see in excess of 50 Stallholders .Cambridge is a thriving and vibrant provincial Market well supported by the local communities.

Should you wish to become a stallholder, act now and contact our Market managers, we are very receptive to new initiatives with growth going forward, one of our major objectives.

If you are a keen busker please like us on Facebook and contact our managers to discuss playing at one of our markets.

Not for Profit organisations who wish to raise awareness for their causes may contact us regarding setting up a one-off stand at the Market entry point, however, we do not allow the sales of goods and you must have the approval of the market Trust.
