“3 Farmers markets in one morning !”
Reviewed 4 August 2011

the Farmers Markets of Christchurch are a great forum for the artisan food industries to maintain their relationships with the public and canny visitors in the post earthquake transition.
I like The Saturday Market at Riccarton House as it is close to where I now live and it is open early enough for me.
As Lyttelton Farmers Market only advertises a start of 10am, you can see Riccarton market for breakfast and then get over to Lyttelton afterwards. There are a number of businesses at both markets not many though.
Tip take cash while eftpos is available you will be charged a transaction fee 2-3 dollars.
take a chiller bag for fresh meats and cheese purchases.
