Waiheke Saturday Market
Our “10 minute walk” from Kennedy Point, where we disembarked from the SeaLink Ferry, took us to this quaint little Waiheke Saturday Market. Every Saturday, from 7.30am -12:30pm, the people of Waiheke Island congregate to buy and sell, swap stories and catch up with friends over a cup of fresh Island coffee. (Check out the up to date times HERE).
This is a real community market. There are arts and crafts, fresh local fruit and vegetables, potted plants, Waiheke-made produce including olive oil, bread and preserves, local food stalls with an international flavour, Waiheke-made organic skincare, jewellery, new and secondhand clothing, old and new goods and books, health and healing practitioners, pony rides, bungy trampoline and toffee apples for the kids.
We were pleasantly surprised by the wide variety of things on available!
We sampled a few foods – like bread, olive oil, and pesto – and also purchased a few things. The sausages rolls were amazing!
Actually, everything smelled and tasty incredible.
We sure we happy that we found the market before it closed down for the day. It was a feast for all of our senses.
If you do find yourself on Waiheke Island over a weekend, be sure to pop by this cool little market. It is located at Ostend War Memorial Hall and Reserve (76 Ostend Road, Waiheke Island, Auckland).
Next up, we caught one of the local buses to Wild on Waiheke to do a Wine and Beer Tasting.
