  • Really nice market atmosphere, often with live music. Can't go wrong here but parking can be tough because it's so popular.
  • Awesome weekend getaway from Auckland. Recommended to visit the markets. Less that an hour drive from Auckland. Just be careful with the weekend traffic...
  • Cracking food, will definitely be back for more of the smoked beef cheek. Excellent price.
  • Rustic eatery with good old fashioned meals at reasonable prices.
  • Not too far from the big city. They have a great farmers market here on Saturday.
