Birkenhead Artisan Market

Highbury House
110 Hinemoa St


           3rd Saturday of each month from 9am - 1pm



20th August 2016


The Birkenhead Artisan Market is one of Auckland's premier markets selling artisan foodstuffs and an amazing array of textiles, jewellery, homewares, clothing and art that are hard to find in New Zealand.

A mix of farmer's market and upmarket craft market  

  • unusual, beautiful products
  • fine foods 
  • textiles
  • craft
  • clothing 
  • jewellery
  • new stalls each month
  • great atmosphere



    The market sells artisan and specialised foodstuffs from New Zealand producers as well as an amazing array of homewares, art, jewellery and ceramics from around the world.  Items sold always have a point of difference.  Some are beautifully handcrafted here in New Zealand, some are imported from overseas, but all share one common theme; they are not widely sold throughout New Zealand and in some cases are only sold at this market.  You will always find unique and interesting pieces to adorn yourself, your children or your home. 

    Each stall is handpicked and vetted to ensure the standards are kept high. The aim of the market is always to provide you with good quality items at reasonable prices. 

    Come and meet up with friends and family in a convivial atmosphere that can be enjoyed by locals and visitors alike.  Try beautiful food from our artisan stalls, sit in the shade of the trees and relax!

    Hello market goers! 

    Hope you are all keeping warm and dry.  This months market will be a slightly smaller affair as all winter markets are but even so there are plenty of stalls to grab your interest. 

    New faces at this months market include - Made With Love (craft); Mei Mei Food (Malaysian food); Two Black Dogs (olive oils); Acorn Nation (craft); Richwood Pens and we also have two groups who are particpating in the Young Enterprise Scheme.  The first are TKE who have produced an allergy friendly chocolate and the second are Tami Jam who have produced Kiwiana flavoured jams...

    Our fundraiser this month is for the North Auckland Karate Club.

    A special note - Kim Carter of 'Mischievous Monkeys' will selling her super cute sock monkeys, once again.  Kim has pledged that for every one she sells she will be making two to give to children battling cancer at Starship in the name of Gabby's Starlit Hope.   

    See below for a full list of who'll be there.

    Don't forget the market is on regardless of weather (we laugh in the face bad of weather) and there are stalls inside the house too.

    Also do note that although some of the stallholders will have eftpos facilities most do not so come armed with plenty of cash - the nearest ATM is in Highbury, a good ten minute walk away.

    Please note that while some stallholders will have eftpos facilities, most do not and the nearest ATM is in Highbury (a ten minute walk from the market), so please come armed with cash.  Cheers!

    See below for a full line up of who'll be there this month.
