  • Wow, what a cool place to visit on a Saturday! The markets are great, reasonable prices on most things. This place gives you a real holiday feeling with the variety of foods and local products for sal...  more »
  • Open-air market with a small number of shops and scurrying about the Court there sellers and loaders, as well as places tourists stragglers from their groups or even lost. Cenik here below average so you can any trinket to buy for themselves and relatives.

  • A morning at the market with breakfast at the Matakana Kitchen is the best way to spend a Saturday before a walk along the beach at Omaha nearby.

  • 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.
