Food, glorious food - Wellington Markets

From undercover atriums to outdoor surroundings, visitors can get a taste of local produce and products from Wellington's wide range of boutique weekend markets. Here are some of our favourite places to shop:

City Market

This delectable market, championed by Kiwi celebrity chef Martin Bosley and Rachel Taulelei of local food company Yellow Brick Road, brings a stellar line-up of local food and beverage producers together undercover in the atrium of the landmark Chaffers Dock Building. On every Sunday 8.30am- 12.30 pm.

Harbourside Market

Situated alongside the City Market, and right by the national museum Te Papa, is Wellington’s vibrant open-air Sunday morning shopping experience, Harbourside Market. With powers combined, the two ensure Wellington’s waterfront is the number one weekend destination for top quality local cuisine and entertainment. On every Sunday 7.30am - 2pm.

Wellington Underground Market

Wellington Underground Market showcases emerging designers, makers, bakers and crafters. All of this mixed in with exotic goods and the tantalising smells of fresh ethnic food - plus great coffee and live music. On every Saturday 10am – 4pm.
