Farmers markets are the perfect way to begin a weekend in the Waikato, with a variety of markets dotted around the region and showcasing some of the best artisan products and produce the Waikato has to offer.
Aspen Manor Motel is centrally located to all of these markets so that you will be spoilt for choice.
Hamilton Farmers’ Market takes place at Te Rapa Racecourse, Te Rapa Rd, Hamilton every Sunday.
The Hamilton market is a great place where you can purchase all of your meat, fish, cheese, milk, breads, cakes, honey and preserves, fresh seasonal vegetables, herbs and fruit, plants and seedlings directly from small local farmers.
“We recommend grabbing a coffee and some breakfast, sit under the trees and listen to great local music,” says Simon Lowe, who co-owns Aspen Manor Motel with his wife, Lornae.
There is even a place for your dogs in the doggy parking area and you can buy them a treat on the way out.
Held on every 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month are the Hamilton East Markets in Grey St and they are certainly worth getting up early for. They feature collectables, brick a brac, books, plants, handmade jewellery and so much more. “Who knows what treasure you might discover?” adds Lornae.
Every Sunday in summer, the award-winning Hamilton Gardens play host to Gourmet in the Gardens. Here, you can experience the finest in local cuisine set amongst some world famous gardens. “We are located only a short walk or quick drive from Hamilton Gardens, so this is a perfect thing to do on a Sunday evening while staying with us,” Lornae adds.

Aspen Manor Motel is within an easy walking distance to an interesting array of shops, cafes, bars, restaurants, sports fields and the Hamilton Gardens for entertainment.
