Nelson’s newest food destination


Nelson’s Newest Food Market

Located in Appleby Nelson, we have spruced up our previous road side veggie stall and opened the doors to the new ‘Connings Food Market’. The original store, Farm Fresh started out as a small road side stall by our family in 2017. The three brothers; Simon, Toby and Ben, and parents, Robbie and Cheryl, originally opened Farm Fresh as an outlet for vegetables and berries grown on the family farm in Hope and across the Waimea Plains.

Connings is a destination for quality, fresh produce as well as other artisan products from around New Zealand, and specifically the Nelson/Tasman/Marlborough region.

Community. Affordability, Sustainability.

We are a bunch of locals that appreciate the enormous range of products produced in our region. We want to celebrate these brands and make it a priority to buy local and support local.

Most of our fresh produce comes from our family farm, which allows us to keep prices as affordable as possible. You can then eat as much delicious, healthy and fresh produce as you desire.

We are making a conscious decision to create a store that works hard towards a sustainable future. Whether that is through the brands we stock, the materials we use or the way we constantly look to reduce our waste.


Providing healthy, quality foods for a healthier, quality life.
