The Auckland Fair is a unique event opportunity held twice a year for exclusively handmade Exhibitors from New Zealand and Australia, it is a niche event that is at the forefront of Auckland markets, offering products with an emphasis on quality over quantity to thousands of visitors, hungry for more. Our event will be held at Shed 10, right on the Auckland Waterfront, Shed 10 is an award winning heritage building and hosts some of Auckland’s most prestigious events. This venue is testament to the quality of the Exhibitors we host and the continued growth of the Fair, creating a unique shopping experience.
The Fair is a destination event, it is not your average market! Visitors travel from all over the country and will often time trips to Auckland to coincide with our event. While the Fair itself might be for one day, due to the level of visitors and the way in which the event is managed and marketed, sales are not limited to the trading day alone, and up to 40% of your sales from the Fair could be in the lead up and following the event itself, which makes us a pivotal addition to your sales and marketing calendar. The Auckland Fair is held in Winter, usually June/July, and Summer, in early December making it perfect for pre-Christmas shopping.
Unlike other markets, the Auckland Fair is the largest, exclusively handmade and curated market in New Zealand. Everything at the Market is required to be made by the person selling it, being personally involved in the manufacturing process. We don’t allow any vintage or resellers at the Fair, so you are on a level playing field with each and every Exhibitor; a unique position that sets us apart.
Exhibitors are selected for each event through an application process that is held 3-4 months before each event. Each participating Exhibitor is hand selected by Jessica, based on products, branding, display and other careful considerations.
