Birkenhead Artisan Market

Highbury House
110 Hinemoa St


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



18th June 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!  Not to jinx it or anything but do you think winter will be starting soon?  Not that I am complaining you understand but I really want to wear my new winter pj's...anyway back to business...
