    First time here and a great market with a lot of stalls. Lovely setting by the river and the historic Riccarton House. Wonderful products from dog treats, cheese, flowers, porridge to vegan goods.

    Still partway through a major renovation and strengthening following the 2010/2011 quakes so some areas are still off limits. Yet to regain it's vibrant atmosphere but making good strides. The great hall is always worth a visit.

    Riccarton Mall isn't a bad place to spend a few hours. There are a good range of shops and some decent specials. I have to give special mention to the Jacqui E store, where my wife received really great service from the shop assistant during late Dec 21. She couldn't have been more attentive and helpful!

    Dropped in here to get some good affordable clothes and came out with way to much. Plenty of shops but some are so crowded I can’t get wheelchair around but others are fantastic. Great parking

    We make use of this mall sometimes. There is a good selection of shops. The mall is also a good place to go on a rainy day - you can get a decent walk in up and down the mall at the same time as browsing shops!
    Plenty of easy parking. Also the cinemas if you are into this.
    The rebuilt Langdons Quarter food court is nice, with a good variety of eating outlets. We enjoyed a Chinese lunch here on Sunday.

    Sunday we attended the market. There are many interesting stalls there to walk around.
    The boiled lollies sweet stall was outstanding. The owner was very friendly and helpful. He even stocks sugar free lollies which we were after.
    There are a large number of food outlets there catering for a variety of food. Tables and chairs are there along with a live band entertaining those eating.
    Well worth visiting for the wide rang of stalls there.
    There is ample free parking there.

    This Sunday only market is a small little market with vendors and food trucks. We especially liked the soap vendor. What we did like is across the street there are woodworker shops and souvenir stores in that little area. Also the building next-door has some wonderful stores inside in the upper floors. So make sure you explore the whole area when you go.

    Nothing special with this mall but it's still pleasant enough to visit.
    The disappointing aspect is the number of closed and/or closing stores which created a sort of emptiness. The food court had a reasonable range of food options, all at good price points and it was clean.
    All up, ok but nothing to write home about.

    So nice to have a mall that is not unpleasantly crowded. Great food court with space around it. Shopping is leisurely. Movie theater is handy. Parking is ideal.

    Went there around late noon, and food stalls take up most of the market. Wouldn't make my way down especially but would drop by if in the area for a snack. It is locared right infront of the Cathedral.

    There are a number of shopping malls in Christchurch. Some are big and leave you feeling quite exhausted after visiting. The Merivale Mall is to me the perfect size and the nicest by far. It has a relaxed feel about it compared to the others which is part of it’s atttaction and the draw card for people.
    It has a good selection of shops which caters for the needs of many. Chemist, books, shoes, clothing, supermarket, giftware, jewellery, key cutters,cafés, florist... and more besides to give you a good shopping experience.
    The mall has ample car parking space and is conveniently located with other shops nearby.

    This is a charming little Farmers Market in the grounds (or at least adjacent to) the Rudolf Steiner School in a pretty location on the banks of the Heathcote River. It's a lovely recreational way to get your 5+ a day and you can be sure that everything is fresh and seasonal and probably organic. There is also a collection of artisans selling all sorts of different and delicious prepared product - breads, cheeses, treats etc and also vege seedlings. There are refreshment stands so it's also a great place to meet friends for a coffee in the sun. Not sure ho you go there on public transport but there's plenty of street parking on the river. Dust off your wicker basket!

    Each time I visit Christchurch you can bet I’ll get here at least once. The mall has everything you could need, supermarket, butcher, Bakery, shoes, gift store, banks, post office, chemist, and a fantastic selection of food cafes and eateries
    There are a few alfresco places adjacent to one of the parking areas and several more inside.
    Ample mobility parking and parents with pram parking too.
    There are a handful of clothing stores but one of my favourites is Wild South, they aren’t cheap but the do have a good discount on their sales stuff. Mostly natural cottons, linens, wool etc so you know your getting quality. Both men’s and women’s ware selections.
    Hope you enjoy the mall as much as I do and if you need a pick me up! There’s a great chocolatiers and tea shop inside.... yum
