Countdown quay st is open 24 hrs But no alcohol overnight (can't remember what time they stop+resume selling alcohol - 11pm or midnight)
 
* Countdown metro on Victoria St (opposite elliot st) is probably the closest.
 
* New World on Queen St (opposite Shortland St in the former BNZ food court)
 
Both Countdown + new world is smaller than the countdown in Quay St + New World at Victoria Park.
 
* they all have stuff for gluten free, egg free, dairy free, vegetarian diets (eg gluten free breads etc). They also have butchery, bread, deli, etc. just the smaller ones have not as big range.
 
 
Lim Chhour (sp) asian supermarket on 184 K'Rd (behind k'rd foodcourt)
 
and Tai Ping Beach Rd are 2 closest asian supermarkets to the venue.

== Markets ==
 
== Markets ==
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/
 
 
* Britomart Farmers market on Saturday
 
* Parnell Farmers market - behind the jubilee building on Sundays
 
* La Cigale French Market in Parnell. on Sat + sundays St Georges Bay Rd. Can walk from carlaw park accommodations. Doesn't comply with "farmers market" rules. La Cigale (the shop which started the market) has imported french cheeses and wines as well as other kitchenware. However there's many stalls there that would comply within the NZ farmers market regulations.
 
Very very good market. There's a gluten free sausage stall there too.

About this page

Lin Nah will be leaving you info + links here for putting up on the wiki. Yes it is as opposed to doing it myself. Some of them require organising, wording etc. Mostly info + links I already have and so it is a copy + paste without prettying it up. Some will be links to where to find the info.

Maps: either Open streetmap or google map If someone is creating them


Speciality foods

SUpermarkets do have a lot of the organic, dairy free, gluten free(incl bread + pasta), sugarfree , and food for special diets. However there's other shops too. Eg if the bread/pasta/biscuits isn't in the bread/pasta section, check for the supermarket's speciality section or ask staff.


Cheese

Good selection at supermarket. Those that won awards usually have a label.
