The River Traders is run by a community trust, which ensures that any profit from the income received is used to assist community initiatives.

Our market is held every Saturday rain or shine, and is situated alongside the Waimarie Riverboat Centre on the riverfront 500 metres upstream on the town centre side of the City Bridge.

You can also contact us by email to or by leaving a message on (06) 3439795 or text 0272299616. Phone or text enquiries are usually followed up on a Thursday.

Stall bookings need to be made by Wednesday of each week as space is often fully allocated. New stall-holders need to make contact earlier than this as there is an application process to go through.

New applications are assessed against our criteria which includes compatibility with the existing product range, origin of product and site availability. We are unable to guarantee site availability to all applicants.

You will be advised if your application is approved.
