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.

== 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/
+
 
+

* Parnell Farmers market - behind the jubilee building on Sundays 8am - noon http://www.parnell.org.nz/Parnell-Trust-Farmers-Market-Auckland.htm  google+ https://plus.google.com/+ParnellFarmersMarketAuckland/?hl=en
+
 
+
* 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 glutenfree sausage stall there too.
+
 
+
When: every Saturday from 8am to 1.30pm and Sunday from 9am to 1.30pm.
