Every weekend, up and down the country thousands of people flock to farmers market. For many it’s simply a weekly ritual – fresh local produce straight from the growers and the opportunity to meet the food producers themselves. For others it’s more of a social outing – meeting friends, exploring a market for the first time or simply getting out and about on the weekend.
If you’re in Wellington over the summer holiday make time to explore the local markets. City Market in the Chaffers Dock Building Sundays 8:30am – 12:30pm provides a line-up of local food and beverage producers, from whitebait fritters (highly recommended) and savoury crepes, to macarons, cheese, nut butters and more. Your taste buds won’t go home disappointed.
And while you’re there, don’t forget to grab everything you need for a picnic, BBQ or simply your weekly provisions from Wellington’s oldest market – Harbourside Market, open every Sunday 7:30am – 2pm in the carpark next to Te Papa. From fresh fruit and vegetables to breads, cheese and deli meats; you can even grab fish fresh from the back of Nino’s fishing boat.
Look forward to exploring more Wellington markets in January. For more information on other Wellington markets visit WellingtonNZ
