Feilding

Feilding (not Fielding) is a small town, only 30 minutes (by bus) or 15 minutes drive from Palmerston North. The town is named after William Feilding who settled in the area in 1870s.

3 Facts about Feilding (credit to Feilding official website):

  • Feilding is 14 times winner of New Zealand’s Most Beautiful Town
  • Feilding Farmers’ Market is 3 times winner of New Zealand’s Market of The Year 2012, 2013 and 2014
  • Feilding Livestock Centre is one of the largest saleyards in the Southern hemisphere.

I used to visit Feilding quite often, as it is quite close to Palmy, where I used to live. If you come to Palmy don’t forget to visit Fielding as well.
