Birkenhead Artisan Market

Highbury House
110 Hinemoa St


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



15th October 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! 
    Happy Spring!

    Hope you are all well, now we have moved into Spring the market will be getting busier especially as - dare I say it - Christmas draws nearer...

    This months new faces are Ethereal Designs (crystal jewellery), The Origins (ground coffee), Endangered Kingdom, De Piel (leather shoes from South America), Kim's DIY (scented candles), Tupperware and Your Inspiration at Home (herb and spice mixes).

    Gokul Lila will also be at the market to promote the use of yoga and meditation in your everyday life.

    Our fundraiser this month will be a familiar face - Caitlyn from Carmel College will be selling pies and sausage rolls to raise funds for her World Expedition trip.

    In other news - This will be the last month I am manager for, after seven years of being market manager I have decided to move on. The new manager is Katie Meese with her husband Matt as sidekick.  I would just like to say how much I have enjoyed being the manager and meeting all you lovely people.  Thank you for all your support over the years!

    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!
