A wet day at the farmers' market 2

A wet day at the farmers' market

Even though yesterday was a miserable day in Lyttelton, it looked like the farmers’ market was successful. The Boyfriend, his sister and I made our way out there around 11am and the Supervalue Carpark was pretty busy by that stage, with a few of the suppliers already running out of supplies. We wandered around for a while, tasting Ground Foods delicious dips and observing the huge queue at the Tuahiwi Organic Produce stall but the cold wet day ensured that we had little inclination for dawdling. We did manage to pick up a few things, however, before we legged it to the warmth of a local café.

Lyttelton Farmers’ Market

Although there is no shortage of small weekend markets in and around Christchurch, the one thing missing is a proper farmer’s market. A couple of weeks ago, however, I read an announcement in local newspaper The Christchurch Press – which does a fantastic food section every Thursday – about a farmer’s market starting up this Saturday, 3rd of September, at the Supervalue Carpark, which is just off Canterbury Street in Lyttelton. Lyttelton is a harbour community, just about half-an-hour’s drive from Christchurch, and was one of the original ports of entry for English settlers arriving in New Zealand in the 1850s.
