Held every Thursday from 3 until 6 PM, the Wanaka Farmers Market is one of only a handful of markets in New Zealand that runs year-round. The Wanaka Artisan Market also runs alongside the Arts & Crafts market during select Sundays in the summer months.

The market is held between the Wanaka Speights Ale House and Bullock Creek. Visitors can enjoy seasonal artisan produce and regionally produced delights including locally-made arts and crafts, pastries, bread, fabric gifts, hand crafted wooden bowls, local wine, foraged nuts and much more.
