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, last months market was a bit of a fizzer given the weather was so awful early on which resulted in a much smaller market than is usual even for winter.  But big kudos to those stallholders and customers who did make an appearance.  Fingers crossed this month will be much improved!

    New faces this month include The Sugar Works, Jonathan & Julie Bourla, Candy Floss, A & E International, Kim's DIY, The Young Authors Project, DePiel, Mei Mei Food, Scentsy  and of course there are all your favourite faces to.

    Special mention needs to go out to the Young Authors Project who will be raising money in order to publish a book by Eilish Wilkes called 'Hospital Happenings'.  Eilish is a young lady who has spent more than her fair share of time at Starship and has been diagnosed with a terminal illness.  The book will be her legacy. If you are interested in knowing more than you will find the Project in the side room in the house.

    Our fundraiser this month is to raise money for a trip to the Scout Jamboree. 

    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.

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

    So, don't forget to visit your favorite local market. Give the malls a miss and come down Hinemoa St for great cafes, boutiques, galleries and the best little market on the North Shore!
