I like markets as they are a good place to find the best NZ local produce (especially the farmers markets).  "Farmers market" in nz means things they sell has to be made/grown within a certain radius of the market's location. They tend to be organic or spray free too. Authenticity http://www.marketground.co.nz/fmnz/35275/
