Avondale Sunday Market

Avondale Racecourse is an integral part of the local community – home of the famous Avondale Sunday Market.  The Avondale Sunday Market has been operating on the grounds of Avondale Racecourse for nearly 40 years and is New Zealand’s largest one-day market. Attracting up to 20,000 visitors in a day, Avondale is abuzz every Sunday morning – rain, hail or shine.

The Avondale Sunday Market has a strong Asian and Polynesian influence, offering a diverse array of products and fresh produce that you simply can’t find anywhere else. 

Sporting Activities

As part of our commitment to supporting the community, Avondale Jockey Club lease the sports fields on the inner circle of the racecourse to Auckland Council for rugby, football, and cricket matches and practice. This area can also be used by the community for athletics events, and activities such as fairs and carnivals. The fields are managed by Auckland Council.
