Matakana Farmers' Market

A classic market, with a premium twist.

Luscious produce from the area fills the stalls – fruit and vegetables, delicious home baking, Italian-style sausages, divine organic chocolate, fine wines and boutique herb-infused olive oils, locally-brewed beer and the all-important morning coffee with live music as an accompaniment. Friendly locals help you through your Saturday with plenty of samples and festive flair but be warned, this market is popular and fills up with people early. Among the more unusual market stalls you'll find Mike's Sharpening Service, take in your blunt knifes and he'll make them as good as new.

If you feel like an injection of good health, try one of the brightly-coloured Go Raw Smoothies, the green option is utterly delicious. Slightly pricier than the other alternatives and no doubt further away but Matakana offers the premium market option, and hey, the parking's free.
