Customers appreciate the quality of food on offer, including its freshness and the availability of spray free or organic produce. The atmosphere of the market is relaxed, fun and social. With the growing awareness of the contribution of fresh fruit and vegetables to health, the market is a key component of the local health network and contributor to the Food for Life* programme.

*Food For Life

As the market prepares to close, staff from the Hare Krishna Food For Life across the road call around the stalls and collect unsold fruit and veges. This food provides the bulk of ingredients required to provide 500 meals free of charge. Most of these meals are supplied to children at Manaia School.
