“Great local market”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2012

Its nice to have the opportunity of seeing goods from the Central Otago area in the one place. I often see things in other peoples places and wonder where they got that from, then you go to the market and there it is.
For most artisans, a market is the one place where they can display thier craft without the huge cost of a shop, so you get a good variety of quality goods. The food is great as well and the views are amazing. Not many markets have views like that.
Dont miss it.

“Fabulous Market!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2012

Great selection of stalls and food. The atmosphere has a real buzz about it and the stallholders are all super friendly. Everything is local. I visited their special Mid-Winter Market and spent 3 hours there. I will definitely be a regular when it re-opens for the 2012 summer season, in spring.

“A market lovers paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2011

What a great market! Great music, great coffee, great range of just about everything! The location is amazing. The views from this site are second to none as well. Even if you're not into markets, this is worth a look. It's not your everyday market in the fact that there doesn't appear to be any "junk" there. Quite often you go to one of those and it's a series of little trinkets and rip offs, but this one isn't one of those.

If you're in Queenstown it would be remiss not to go and have a look. It's Saturday mornings from 8am!

“Fantastic Market!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2011

I have been to a lot of markets all over the world. Many generally sell the same old poor quality, imported items, but Remarkables Market really showcases the local growers and artisans. If you are after something locally produced and high quality, this is the place to get it.

Remarkables Market has an amazing selection of stalls and literally has a bit of everything from fresh produce (includes organic), meat and eggs (includes free-range), homemade sourdough, ready meals, cheese and deli items.

Not only that, it also has a wide range of gift and home wares which have been handmade by the locals (plants, garden artefacts made from re-cycled wine barrels, scented soy candles, cushions, clothing and more).

Enjoy a latte and bacon butty, while sitting in the sun, listening to local musicians; or have a good browse around the stalls and chat to the vendors, who are the friendliest bunch of people. It has a really upbeat and happy atmosphere.

It’s a great way to idle away your Saturday morning. I highly recommend it. The prices are extremely reasonable, but you will want to buy lots, so my advice is to take plenty of cash, as only a small number of stalls take EFTPOS or Credit.
