A Farmer's Market with a Māori/Pasifika signature and global flavours. Come down to Hillary Court (tucked between the rebuilding of the Naenae Pool and Naenae Train Station), in Lower Hutt's original 1950's Suburban Utopia — every Saturday from 9am to 1pm — for your weekly 'straight from the Earth—fresh fruit and vege' shop and enjoy some fresh local hot kai, weekly entertainment, locally made arts and crafts, second hand goods and get to know what’s going on in this vibrant, multi-cultural community.
Each week we have different hot food stalls alongside consistently good fresh and locally grown produce. Naenae Village Market is a great place to find Hangi, Rewana, Ika Mata (Raw Fish), Seafood Chowder, Somali samosas and curry, and more... So catch a train, bring your friends, for a true Aotearoa grass roots experience.
Bands, buskers, dance groups and performers play alongside activities for the tamariki. Ans Westra's photography is on display in the Naenae Centre and Trade School Kitchen is a great place for 'People's Coffee' and a lunch date if the hangi or chowder sell out. An investment in Naenae's future, Naenae Village Market relies on foot traffic to support local stall holder's, business owners and creative talent. Come and see what Naenae is all about!
Naenae Village Market runs from 9am – 1pm. Take an Upper Hutt Train to Naenae and exit the Cambridge Terrace Side.
Naenae is a 5-minute drive from Avalon Park and The Dowse Art Museum and has many good local bush walks and bike tracks.
