Not a "cyclist?" No problem, rent an electric bike to take the strain out of it as you ride from winery to winery in a day. Want a unique adventure with your partner or group of friends? Try a multi-day ride with a stop off in some quaint accommodation. To get you started, we've put together our local knowledge on how to incorporate the best parts of these rides into easy day trips.

6 Farmers Markets To Visit In New Zealand

It’s actually not making too much of ourselves to say that New Zealand is a foodies paradise, and all over the country farm gate markets are the torch bearers of that freshness, quality and artisan dedication. Our farmers markets are all about freshness, provenance, community and sustainability and there’s something deeply rewarding about being able to have a conversation with the person who grew or made the food that you are about to eat. 

These markets also reflect the community and the area that they come from, with all the colour and seasonality that this implies. Shopping here is not about the transaction but more about the relationship with the seller and the fact that you can learn something about their product makes the experience so much more than shopping in a supermarket. Not only can you buy produce and ingredients, but all our markets come with amazing ready to eat food offerings, which if you are anything like us, you’ll find near impossible to resist. So here are 6 of our favourites.

Top Farmers’ Markets in New Zealand

There's no doubt about it: New Zealand is the adventure capital of the world. However, the stunning landscapes, beautiful beaches, buzzing cities and a rich cultural history mean the South Island and the North Island are both places not to be rushed through. 

So why not slow the pace a bit? We've taken two of our favourite roadtrips and found our favourite farmers' markets in New Zealand en route, so whether you're on the North Island or South Island, we recommend you park up your campervan, buy yourself some local produce and a coffee, sit back and soak up all that NZ has to offer.
