  • Boutique village which has changed and grown for nthe better over the past few years. The Saturday market is particularly worth a visit. 
  • Matakana Village Farmers' Market is small but cheerful. I've tried a few kind of food there. I couldn't say that I like them all but it was fun trying something new. I love the atmosphere of this mark...  more »
  • Nice city for a stop over with great shops, coffee places and places to eat. It is close to vineyards and pretty beaches.

  • This is my home village where I go for shopping and socializing. My favourite part of the village is the free stall, run by friend Delwyn Sharp who is a singular recyclist. She gathers things that people don't want and makes them available to people who need them. Her parents owned the land where the Morris and James pottery now exists and she lives in a house built for the Dairy Factory. Matakana has a vibrant and interesting history underneath the flash and dazzle most people see when they visit the market. Delwyn is a generous free spirit and she is a reminder of the old Matakana I'd hate to see go forever.
  • Interesting market. Love the stalls there, classic and nice. Sakura is the right time. Should go when you are free.
  • Absolutely beautiful, cozy and trendy place
  • Great market and has a good atmosphere especially with live music. Nice selection of food - even oysters ! A great morning out.
  • Nice upmarket place with a laid back feel. Sort of similar to Waiheke Island with lots of opportunities to taste wine. Check out the local cinema complex and inside you can taste wine from around the region.
