Kia kaha Christchurch

Our hearts go out to the people of Christchurch, particularly those who have lost loved ones and everyone who is helping in the mammoth clean-up effort.

In the rural areas, farmers and producers are battling on and this Saturday from 9am to 12noon you can visit the Farmers' Market which will be held outside Riccarton House. This will be an  opportunity to catch up with friends and family while also supporting local food producers.

You can expect to find anything from fresh fruit and vegetables to wines, chocolates and cakes. With its organic and locally sourced produce, manager Jamie Bennett says the market can’t be beaten for quality.

“You’re buying direct from the grower, you don’t have the middle-man there, the pricing is very good and you have the freshness as well. The majority of the people that sell fruit and veges usually pick on the Friday and its at the market on Saturday so the quality is very high.”
