The Cambridge Farmers' Market
We are a good old-fashioned farmers' market with a lovely atmosphere and a selection of fresh, local goods brought to you by Waikato growers and businesses. Since 2010 this year-round outdoor market takes place in a beautiful setting underneath the trees at Victoria Square in the centre of Cambridge.
The Cambridge Farmers' Market is a great community market: This is where locals shop, friends and neighbours meet and whole families come together. Vendors and customers share recipes and planting tips, enjoying the unique connection between producers and consumers only found at farmers' markets.
Our market is very popular with children, and during our events the market is bustling with little ones joining in the scavenger hunt, doing crafts and playing with our giant games.
Check the Events Calendar below for festival and party dates!
The Cambridge Farmers' Market offers free on-road parking, Eftpos service and toilet facilities for your convenience. Our sitting area is covered with a large gazebo and buskers are providing live music.
