Need to buy cute NZ gifts before you travel? This is the place. Tea towels , magnets, carvings , tiki, boxed elegant carvings and all sorts of jewellery. Walk around first to check prices then you may be able to negotiate a little. Good value here compared with up market tourist shops.

Sundays morning till noon, for a very early start to your day in this special seaside neighborhood. The usual stalls - clothes, books, artesanal work, food, spices, clothes, organic farmers - under the sun. A relaxing and fun (albeit crowded) warm up for a day in Takapuna.

The thing I really like about this market is the mix of stalls. Its a great place to get breakfast or snacks from many countries, with a coffee, honey tea or juice, while you buy your veggies for the week. There are cheese, meat, fish and deli stalls, and a couple of international bakery stalls. But you can also buy... More

A jumble of outdoor stalls set up in no apparent order in a car park in central Takapuna. If you love a community market, then go now before the land is sold for apartments (and sign the petition against it!). We got fresh produce, food to snack on, organic fair trade cappuccino, flowers and wandered past NZ hand made rock... More

I had really been looking forward to this farmer's market since before I arrived in New Zealand. However, when Sunday came the morning started off with a rather strong storm blowing through complete with rain and thunder and lightening. I did not expect that the market would still be open, so after the rain let up I went to the... More

A nice place o visit when you are coming to Takapuna, the market is open on Sundays. A lot of different kinds of food, gifts and entertainment in the heart of Takapuna beach. After that you can enjoy the beach. Not recommend when it is raining.

I love Takapuna market because it is variety products from farmers and handmade. ตลาดที่นี่สนุกสนานมากครับถ้าใครได้มาเยือนจะสนุกกับการช้อปปิ้งสินค้าจากฟาร์มถึงผู้ผลิตโดยตรง ตลาดเปิดเช้าวันอาทิตย์ตั้งแต่เจ็ดโมงถึงเที่ยง เสียอย่างเดียววันอาทิตย์รถเมล์มีน้อยไปหน่อย ผู้คนที่นี่ใจดีและเป็นมิตรพ่อค้าแม่ค้าแต่งตัวหลากหลายมีทั้งไทย จีน เกาหลี ฝรั่ง India
