It was just by chance that we called in after being to Te Papa, we hadn't been here before and was amazed at all the different things that we could buy, the food stalls were amazing so indulged in some dumplings, this place is amazing

I think the food on offer was just as interesting as the stuff that was being sold! Big pots of paella being cooked up! The stuff on sale was quite random , but still worth a walk around.

This market is in the car park on the waterfront, and is just a series of artisan stalls selling clothing, food and local items. It is much the same as any other market, and not really worth a special visit.

A great place to visit: versatile, well organised and a pleasant buying “atmosphere”. Worth going there on a Saturday morning.
