The beloved Lyttelton Farmers Market is open every Saturday from 10am til 1pm, with fresh produce, organics, meat, fish, eggs, honey, flowers, plants, preserves and baked goods. We also provide music and a community stall for groups who want to raise awareness or promote a charity.

Four days a week local people and visitors flock to The Garage Sale, our local op-shop, which both upholds the principle of re-using goods and provides clothing, books, kitchen goods and all manner of other things for great low prices.

Our commuinty is a community gathering place to share ideas, to help improve community well-being and a place of beauty. It offers the opportunity for people learn to grow food and minimise waste and a place to share in the bounty of the nutritious spray free food from the garden.

The guides, all volunteers, bring a huge wealth of knowledge and experience which makes each walk a valuable experience beyond access to tracks, reserves and private land.
