City Farmers' Market at Britomart
A city dwellers haven
May 13, 2015
Tucked in behind Britomart Station, this market is a haven for city dwellers. Aside from the great selection of seasonal fruit and vege, you'll find a good array of international stalls here. From the pastry selection at Philippe's Chocolate and French Pastries to Argentinian empanadas and Japanese Tako Yaki. The highlights for me are the Persian Deli's olives marinated in walnut and pomegrante molasses, and the spicy Israeli hummus and superb falafel from The Chilli Factor. The only slight hassle for those of us who don't live in the city is parking.
The good news is market shoppers qualify for a special rate of $6 parking at Britomart Car Park, just remember to bring your parking ticket to the market to have it validated. Or save yourself the trouble and take public transport.
