From this Sunday, 1 December 2021, you will be required to have a Vaccination Pass to come to the Hamilton Farmers' Market at Claudelands Event Centre.
Scanning in with the QR code is still required and face coverings are highly encouraged (unless exempt).
This is to keep everyone safe whilst shopping with us and will enable us to return tables and chairs to the venue so you can eat onsite with family and friends.
Our friendly stallholders are looking forward to seeing you on Sunday.
Getting the Vaccine Passport: Details on how to get your vaccine pass are at: My Vaccine Pass | Unite against COVID-19 (covid19.govt.nz)
If you are finding it difficult to get your Vaccine Pass through the online or phone service, your pharmacy may be able to provide you with a printed passport, you just need to take in your (National Health Index) NHI number. There will also be a Vaccine Pass Helpdesk at our Hamilton Farmers' Market entrance this Sunday if you would like to talk to someone in person.

Hamilton Farmers' Market
In March 2006, the Hamilton Farmers' Market started with 15 stallholders in Hamilton. The market flourished, and a group of vendors decided to also sell in Cambridge on Victoria Square. The Waikato Farmers' Markets were born. The Hamilton and the Cambridge Farmers' Market showcase what wonderful products the Waikato has to offer and are thriving and growing every year. Many of the original stallholders are still with the market, with now over 60 members of the markets and many seasonal stallholders - all selling delicious locally grown farm produce and food products!
The Hamilton Farmers' Market found its permanent home at Claudelands in 2016. The Claudelands barn and grounds provide large indoor and outdoor spaces, keeping customers and vendors happy and dry year-round. A large, free carpark, Eftpos service and toilet facilities are amenities our customers appreciate.
The Hamilton Farmers' Market is more than a Sunday shopping destination: Hamiltonians come to buy local products from local growers and businesses, chat with the vendors, meet friends and family, have a coffee and listen to live music. A great way to spend your Sunday morning - give it a try!
