The Good Friday Market April 19th and Show day market nov 15th

The local Canterbury Anniversary Show Day Farmers Market and The Good Friday Easter Market at Ohoka are  hugely popular! The local growers and artisan crafts go overboard on these popular public holiday markets. 

In addition to showcasing the abundance of local foods by our regular  local and regional growers and producers we also invite some special casual growers and producers to join us on what has become a regional highlight of the year.  It's debatable whether Show Day or the Easter Market is the most popular.

In addition to our regular artisan crafts showcasing their line of things  you can look forward to some special 'visitor' artisans too as well as garden plants galore.  

All customers are eligible  to enter the draw for a large hamper of market foods drawn at the Xmas Markets.

So bring your sunhat, picnic rug and get your OFM market bag and join us for a great day of local goodness and music in the Waimakariri.
