Grey Lynn Farmers’ Market – a healthy alternative
Want healthy food that’s locally grown or produced?
The Auckland Grey Lynn Farmers’ Market is a community-owned and operated produce market that provides fresh, locally grown goods that come from within a 200km radius of the Grey Lynn suburb. With 30-plus stallholders, and growing, there’s plenty of choice to do your weekly shop. From vegetables and fruit, to fish and meat, salad dressing, cheese, olive oils, jams, strawberries and more, there is a story behind every product you buy.
The innovative Ooooby stall means customers can bring their own backyard produce to sell or swap with other home garden suppliers, creating a community-centric market that encourages sustainability and good food. Just bring your produce to the Ooooby stall to participate – even better, bring it pre-bagged in the quantities you want to sell and with your name and price attached.
Membership cost $30 for the year and gives you a 10% discount on your purchases, plus voting rights on how the market is run.
