Auckland Fair June 2015


This Sunday at Shed 10 on Queens Wharf, New Zealand’s best makers will gather and present their wares. Entry is $5.

You can bet that all around the country there are makers working day and night over the next few days to get ready for this huge event.

There are over 150 independent makers and to cover the all would be impossible. To keep a list manageable I’ve compiled a little list of makers who may appeal to the foodie in you.

Helo Birdie


Auckland based artist Joey Ho creates watercolour and gouache paintings, prints and cards. Works feature tiny people, wonderful landscapes, cactus and of course, food. She is probably the coolest little sister in the world. No bias or anything…

Miss Changy


Artist Ruby White presents a ceramic plates, cups and her signature rooster bowls. I have to admit, I have a girl crush on Miss Changy. She cooks from scratch, she makes furniture and all the ceramics her diners eat out of. Over achieve much?

Nannestad & Sons


A range of Scandinavian-inspired homewares including these chopping, cheese and serving boards. Their Peggy Folk Shelf would also make a nice spice rack.

I have been to many Auckland Fairs, here is some wisdom I have picked up…

Auckland Fair tips

  1. Go with a buddy or go alone. This is not the place to shop with a group.
  2. Bring cash. The EFTPOS line can grow to dizzying lengths.
  3. Be patient.
  4. Make a list of names if you have birthdays to buy for coming up. Hand made and locally made gifts are always appreciated.
  5. Enjoy and be inspired.

I am Genie, a graphic designer/photographer obsessed with food and bunnies. I live in Whanganui, New Zealand with my husband, The Koala and our two rabbits, Kobe and Bento. I write about my hedonistic ways and I love the mantra "Eat well, travel often". I prefer not to write about myself in third person.

    Thanks for the tips – I was going to gather a bunch of friends to go, but come to think of it I might just go by myself….. I’m not sure anyone else will have the patience to stay at a stall for just five minutes LOOKING at stuff. I’m so excited for the Auckland Fair!
