Matakana markets – quick five

When? Matakana market is open every Saturday from 8am to 1pm

Where? Located approximately 35 mins drive from Auckland, it is scattered over Matakana Square at 2 Matakana Valley Road. To the right as you pass the roundabout.

What to see? A lovely range or fresh food, flowers, locally made cider and crafts. Top marks for a buffalo burger.

Anything else worth seeing nearby? Snells beach is a short drive away – great for a long walk and collecting shells. Tawharanui Regional Park is one of the prime spots for surfers.

Overall rating? 4/5. It might not be an ideal place for your weekly shop, but a great place to visit on the weekend to sample and buy artisan produce. So close to Auckland but feels like miles away!matakana-market-new-zealand
