Helen and Richard Dorrenstyn, who started the market in 2005 and the buffalo company a year later, feel their biggest obstacle will be restructuring their businesses to ensure they survive.
The buffalo farm, which has won a plethora of awards since including eight gold medals this year, and the farmers market, which has been a Sunday morning staple for lots of Aucklanders, have both faced many challenges since lockdown began.
At the farmers market, there are usually over 60 permanent and seasonal stalls which means many local growers, farmers, and food producers have been left with no outlet to sell their goods.
The lack of initial information from the Government caused a great deal of anxiety and it was perseverance in those first few weeks that helped show Helen how important local food systems were.
Worried about her staff's livelihoods, Helen set up an online market from which people in a 25km radius of the market can still buy and enjoy some products.
"Some vendors have enjoyed good sales through this."
The market will not resume for quite some time but Helen believes when it does, people will benefit from shopping and connecting as opposed to clicking and collecting.
"As a safe place to shop and a focal point for the community, I believe the market will be important to our locals and will be a great place to go."
