The Great Christmas Market 2023

Sunday 26th November 2023

We love this time of the year and we love sharing our festive market and all the gorgeous handmade gifts you and your loved ones will treasure.

Founders will yet again be gracing us with its beauty and charm hosting over 100 of the region's finest boutique makers. You'll find unique, handmade gifts for all of your loved ones this Christmas.

We've got stalls inside the Energy Centre, The Granary and outside as well. There will be plenty of top-quality food options to entice the taste buds whilst shopping. If you fancy taking your time you could pack your own picnic or sit and relax at the infamous Founders Cafe. We will have visiting buskers & choirs throughout the day to add to the atmosphere.

Founders has loads on offer for any non-shoppers in your group, Visit Founders Café for local award-winning craft beer and cider. For the kids, there's the fantastic playground and the carefully curated historic buildings not to mention the kids' zone.

We recommend you get your friends together, fill your wallet with cash (many of our stall holders won't have EFTPOS) and come with some great big market bags.

$2 entry at the door, children under 12 are free.

Buying handmade & NZ-made has never been better...

See you there!
