What's the need to install haskell ?? ...
Just do brew update and brew install pandoc.

I was starting from scratch (no LaTeX), so I had to do the following:

$ brew tap phinze/cask
$ brew install brew-cask
$ brew cask install mactex
  • In this version, pdflatex is broken, so I had to go to my Applications/TeX folder and run FixMaxTeX2013.pkg. Or see this stack exchange link
  • Now I'm ready to install pandoc as above
$ brew update
$ brew install pandoc

This line not work anymore:

~$ brew install haskell-platform
Error: No available formula for haskell-platform
We no longer package haskell-platform. Consider installing ghc
and cabal-install instead:
brew install ghc cabal-install
A binary installer is available:

if you have installed port, simply type this
(works quickly on my OS X Yosemite)

$ sudo port install pandoc
