Rotorua Lakes Council is inviting expressions of interest from people keen to be part of the new Rotorua Farmers Market which will be held on Sundays in the central city.
The new market, to be launched in October, will provide an opportunity to showcase locally grown produce and pantry items like pickles, jams, flowers, cheese and artisan breads with one-off stalls available for community groups and individuals. It will be a food market only, with the exception of seedlings, potted plants, cut flowers, weaving, compost and wood.

There will also be opportunities for individuals and groups like community gardeners to sell excess produce and share their knowledge and opportunities for fundraising.
The market will demonstrate the concept of manaakitanga (hospitality and sharing) and will have a distinctly Rotorua flavour. The “stalls” will be purpose-built carts with a prototype currently underway.
