If you feel like escaping the hustle and bustle of Auckland city and experiencing a taste of rural Kiwi life, then look no further than the Clevedon Farmers Market. Held every Sunday morning at the Clevedon Showgrounds, the market is filled with an abundance of local produce, delicious food, visiting animals and live music....
A short drive from the city and an even shorter distance to the coast, the Clevedon markets make for a great day out.
As you stroll through the grassy grounds, the sounds of farm animals mix with the relaxed melodies of local musicians, and the intertwining smells of both sweet and savoury delights fill the air.
You can peruse a range of local produce, from fresh juices, baked goods, seeds and vegetables to local meats and seafood.
One of the must-try delights on offer are the mouth watering Hungarian Twisters. Cooked to order then rolled steaming hot through your pick of tasty toppings such as sugar and cinnamon and hundreds and thousands, these delicious little pastries will keep you munching all the way to the free cart rides...
If you have any space left to spare, there's plenty more to tempt you. The locally made cornish pasties are another tasty snack well worth a try.
When you've filled your baskets, tasted all the local delights and fed the visiting Alpaca, be sure to find a quiet spot on a haystack to rest your wary legs before carting all your goodies home and planning your next sunday visit.
