Rotorua Weekly Markets

Our guide to the weekly markets in Rotorua and the Bay of Plenty

The Rotorua Farmers Market

The Rotorua Farmers Market is held every Sunday from 9.00am until 1.00pm in the centre of Rotorua at Te Manawa (the intersection of Hinemoa and Tutanekai Streets).  The small market features stallholders showcasing local produce and foods like jams, flowers, cheese, chocolate and artisan breads.

Local musicians play every week and help create the family friendly atmosphere which also has a small play area for kids. The Rotorua Farmers Market has a zero waste policy so all wrapping and containers are made from biodegradable materials which can be composted or recycled. The market encourages customers to bring their own reusable bags and containers whenever they can.

Rotorua Night Market

Located in the Village Green, opposite Lake Rotorua, enjoy a great takeaway at the Rotorua Night Market which is held every Thursday from 5.00pm - 9.00pm. The best food can be found on the street from a number of local restaurants and suppliers showcasing their cuisine. Try the foot long hotdogs or one of the Indian currys on offer. 

Kuirau Park Rotary Market

Held every Saturday morning from 7.00am until 1.30pm, the Rotary Market draws the crowds with some 3000 attending if the sun is out! Situated in Kuirau Park on the corner of Ranolf Street and Lake Road, there are some 40 to 50 stalls selling fresh local produce, clothing, souvenirs and a whole lot more. The market is run by volunteers from the Rotorua North Rotary Club with proceeds from the stalls going to local charities and community projects.
