The Market Diaries [La Cigale French Market]

Today I bring you one of my favourite markets in Auckland, the La Cigale French Market in Parnell.
I feel its been forever since I wrote one of these, but with winter already here It’s harder to find markets or to find the inner strength to crawl out of bed and go to one.

Britomart Market

With the weekend around the corner, I thought it was the perfect time to talk about markets. Every weekend, all around New Zealand you’ll be able to find a market, specially around Auckland, but today I want to focus specially on Saturday Britomart Market.

The market itself its every saturday from 8am to 12.30pm at the back of the Britomart Train Station and usually features all kind of stalls with delicatessen, it is placed across the pavillion (if you’ve read my previous post on Britomart is where the bean bags are placed. http://bit.ly/1cahemB )

Every time I went there was a singer or a performer beside the actual market, and in the stalls, you can find all different kind of goods, from coffee shops, to flowers, to hummus, and “my personal favorites” Argentina pies (empanadas)  The stall is run by two argentinian guys and they usually have the “classic flavors,” unfortunately they are not every Saturday.  I really wished I’d go more often, because they have a really lovely selection of fruit and veggies, and there is a stall with cheeses to die for.
