“Disappointed market”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

We were excited to go to the market. My eldest daughter even brought a basket to carry back all the goods after shopping. Once we arrived there we found nothing interesting to buy. We ended up only buying a handful of roses, two breads and A butter nutty..should add more variety of stands..

“Not too great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2012

I always made it a point to visit the farmers market whenever I'm on holiday.

Parnell's Farmers Market was sadly, disappointing. There were only a handful of stalls, and most of these stalls are commercialized/franchised, which contradicts the true meaning of a Farmer's Market.

That being said, the rest of the markets in Auckland Central were not too good either (La Cigale, Britomart). My husband & I managed to visit all 3 markets on the same day.
