Richards' Orchard Market Fruit Stall  

Find our NEW market fruit stall at the Motueka Sunday Market every Sunday. The old stall in our shed near Mapua is currently shut to the public.

Fruit sales for 2021 start on Sunday 17th January AT THE Motueka Sunday Market, Wallace Street, Motueka, NOT from the orchard. This market is every Sunday 8am-1pm. We will be there from mid-January to May. Heritage, old favorite, tree ripened and hard to find apples, plums, zwetschen (zwetschgen)(prune plums), pears, quinces and damsons (whenever is ready on the day). Same great fruit, still "bag your own" pick and mix. Sorry, no "try one" samples at present. Grandfather bought the orchard in 1944 and we are keeping on keeping on, just doing things a bit differently now.

There are NO public sales at the old fruit shed at the orchard near Mapua. We are looking at whether to do a click 'n' collect service from there (no decision on that yet, sorry).

We also have a facebook page with more updates and photos:

NO jobs available. We never have any jobs, sorry.
