Top foodie destination: Moore Wilson's
Always-on farmers market Moore Wilson's is a must-visit on any eating tour of Wellington.
In the piazza downstairs, there's a sushi stand and Pop-up Food Pods that feature a weekly changing line up of local cafés, restaurants and food trucks serving affordable and delicious on-the-go eats. Next to the space to park your dog while you shop (with a complementary water bowl and free pats by shoppers passing by) is a sculpture by renowned Manawatu artist Paul Dibble that tells the story of the artesian water bore that runs under the site, with a tap where you can fill your drink bottle.
Moore Wilson's is where most local restaurants source their supplies from, so you'll often bump into the restaurant crowd at Moore's. Rita co-owner Paul Schrader says, "Moore's is a great place to not only buy what you need but to catch up with the local gossip and have a chin wag with your peers."
Head down to Moore's on a Saturday morning to grab a coffee and soak up the atmosphere – who knows who you'll bump into.
