La Cigale Farmers Market
If you’re ever having difficulty getting to France to do your shopping, there’s no need to worry. Just go to Auckland’s La Cigale Market and you’ll be there. Voted New Zealand’s best food market 8 years in a row by Metro Magazine, La Cigale is a one of a kind beast with its Kiwi/French fusion vibe, the freshest produce and amazing food. A feast for the eyes as well as the palate, this market showcases the finest products from New Zealand artisan producers as well as from overseas. There’s plenty here to inspire your cooking in the camper on the next level or to make you give in to temptation and eat right there on the spot.
Whangarei Growers Market
If Saturday morning ever finds you sauntering around the North Island, what ever your state of mind, you’d be wise to give this a look. Whether you are feeling fit, or working off last night’s exuberance, a crepe and coffee will do the job that needs to be done. This market draws around 4,000 people every Saturday and if the sensational food isn’t enough you can mix that up with some plants and rock and roll.
Hawkes Bay Farmers Markets
Even in the context of New Zealand, Hawkes Bay has a fair claim to having been touched by the beauty stick, where plentiful sunshine and a long growing season work their magic on wines and all manner of other produce. Not to be missed, this regular Sunday morning event has over 70 stalls offering local produce, breads, pastries, sauces, salads and much more while you can relax with a coffee and listen to local performers.
Otago Farmers Market
When they come from down south and say, “open every Saturday rain, hail or shine” you know they mean it. That said, no amount of rain could ever take the lustre from this market’s stunning array of food that has had them voted Best Farmers Market in New Zealand. In a world of farmers markets, Otago can claim to be a “genuine” farmers market because most of the produce actually comes from the local area. Run as a charitable trust this also has a strong educational emphasis.
Riverton Farmers market
Markets don’t come any more committed and grassroots powered than Riverton, which is the most southerly farmers market in New Zealand. Open every Saturday in the Riverton Environment Centre in Palmerston St all the produce is organic and comes from within 75km of the market. It’s a small but really high quality market that lives large. Well worth a quiet kombucha and a careful look.
Remarkables Farmers Market
Sure we all know about Queenstown for skiing and bungee jumping but, for foodie camper home travellers there’s a lot more to it than that. The Remarkables Market is one of those things. Set amidst 360-degree mountain views it’s a mellow mix of produce, food and the work of local artisans. Nothing not to like we say.
