This growing popularity of Farmers’ Markets is something being seen worldwide and for a host of reasons. The awareness (or concern) of what’s in our food and growing demand for regional, unadulterated and organic produce, climate concerns and the investment into local resources, sustainable agriculture as well as influential television chefs pushing fresh seasonal ingredients combined with good old nostalgia and supporting community ideals are just a few of the influences causing Farmers’ Markets to flourish in New Zealand.
