The Market Diaries [La Cigale French Market]

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.

The Market diaries [Ponsonby Market]

In a previous post, I wrote that Auckland is full of weekend Markets and I wrote about one in particular, which is the Britomart market, so I thought I would be a good idea to do a Markets series, so today I will talk about the Ponsonby produce market, located in the corner of ponsonby & richmond rd.

In comparison to the Britomart market that I talked about here http://bit.ly/1fvBP2c  this market is indoors and it looks more Stylish or Posh that the other. You can find fish and meat stalls, fresh fruit and veggies, and a great stall with cheeses and wine. Most of the stalls claim to have organic products and most of them also have street food, so you can always take a plate and sit by the sun after doing some groceries. I remember going for lunch with some friends to the argentinian barbeque across the market and the cheese shop opened a 150 year old MASSIVE Parmesan cheese and gave us to try. If I could bottle up a scent and spray it…everywhere…it would be that cheese.
