  • Best market in NZ. Pizza, pulled pork crackle buns, Thai, Indonesian, amazing breads and sweets, plus a bunch of local hand crafted goods
  • The biggest market I ever visiting. Mango smoothie and the butter and syrup bread is a must try. Nice morning walk.
  • Lovely lively market in a pretty location beside the river. Great locally produced fresh fruit and veg stalls. A good variety of food stalls. A great way to spend a Saturday morning.
  • Great location and a cool morning out, have been there several times, will be back for more visits. Dog friendly.
  • I am quite possibly biased but the buzz at this weekly market keeps people coming back regularly, not only to buy fresh local produce, and the work of local artisans and artists but to enjoy a good locally roasted coffee , conversation with friends and the odd surprise or two. A gifted child busker, a dance demo or even a pop up magic show.Love it!
