  • 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.
